What’s an HTC 10 without a Desire 10?

HTC’s Desire range primarily offers low-cost and mid-range smartphones catering to budget buyers. Hence, we can expect the rumored Desire 10 to get many of the features that HTC 10 offers at a much lower price point, but with a plastic body instead of metal found on the HTC 10.
The Taiwanese manufacturer has been relying on its Desire range who are among the many brands hit by the recent onslaught of Chinese smartphones in India. It’s trying hard to get back in the game and has launched several Desire handsets which include the Desire 630, 626, 728, 828 and 820.
However, all Desire smartphones come nowhere close to what Chinese manufacturers have to offer who’ve literally tumbled the whole price-performance equation. Though HTC believes not all consumers get swayed away by Chinese smartphones, as there ate still a large number of buyers who prefer a branded smartphone from a reputed manufacturer.
No other details about the Desire 10 are available as of now, so it’s unclear what kind of specs it will offer. Though given the fact that the Desire 10 seems to get inspiration from the flagship HTC 10, the rumoured smartphone could be flagship smartphone of the Desire range.
