HTC has finally launched its flagship HTC 10 and at least on paper it looks like an impressive device. If however you are waiting to buy the smartphone, you will be disappointed. HTC doesn’t seem to be bringing the flagship smartphone to India, and instead it is bringing a less powerful variant called the HTC 10 Lifestyle. Not surprisingly, people aren’t taking too kindly to HTC’s decision.

The HTC 10 and the HTC 10 Lifestyle are identical to look at, but the difference lies in two of the most important aspects of a smartphone — processor and RAM. Where the flagship smartphone is powered by Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 820 chipset paired with 4GB of RAM, the watered down variant is powered by Qualcomm’s 652 chipset paired with 3GB of RAM. While the rest of the specifications remain the same, there doesn’t seem to be a valid reason behind HTC’s decision.

Users on social media were less than amused and not surprisingly vent it out on HTC.

 

 

 

 

 

This isn’t the first time HTC has launched a flagship smartphone globally, but launched a different variant in India. Last year, HTC launched One M9 with Snapdragon 810, but it chose to launch the One M9+ in India, which was powered by MediaTek’s Helio X10 chipset. That said, the One M9+ did have some better specs like a QHD display, Duo camera and a fingerprint scanner.
