More than a month since its announcement, the HTC 10 has finally been launched in India after initial uncertainty caused by the listing of an underpowered variant of the device on the company's local website. Interestingly, the HTC 10 Lifestyle has also been announced at the event, but the pricing and availability hasn't been revealed.
The HTC 10 is priced at Rs. 52,990 ($788) in the country and will be sold through online and offline retailers. There isn't any difference between the variant launched in India and the global one, though the 10 Lifestyle is quite a step down as it swaps out the Snapdragon 820 for a Snapdragon 652 and packs only 3 GB of RAM.

In addition to these, the company also launched the Desire 628 and Desire 825 smartphones for Rs. 13,990 ($208) and Rs 18,990 ($282) respectively.
The 628 packs a 5-inch 720p display, a 1.3 GHz MediaTek quad-core processor, 3 GB of RAM, 32 GB of internal storage and a 2200 mAh battery, while the 825 features a 5.5-inch 720p display, a 1.6 GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 400 processor, 2 GB of RAM, 16 GB of internal storage and a 2700 mAh battery.
