HTC Announces Arrival Of Desire 10 Pro In Malaysia

HTC Desire 10 pro Arrives In Malaysia!

Kuala Lumpur, 21 December 2016HTC Corporation is proud to announce the arrival of the latest HTC Desire 10 pro in Malaysia this holiday season. This latest addition brings stunning design and flagship-level features to HTC’s widely praised Desire family of smartphones.

The Desire 10 pro delivers amazing high-resolution cameras on both front and back, including a brand new Selfie Panorama mode that captures extreme wide-angle pictures, and top-of-the-line features such as an ultra-fast fingerprint sensor.

Inspired by the Art Deco movement in art and design, the HTC Desire 10 captures the spirit of luxury and modernism: bold, precise, geometric metallic lines – influenced by the same contours as the world-renowned HTC 10 – framed by elegant colors and sophisticated materials in a smartphone that inspires with alluring looks on the outside and powerful technology on the inside. Just as Art Deco evolved the art world’s expectations of elegance and sophistication, the HTC Desire 10 evolves what you can expect from an HTC Desire.

Bold and iconic new metallic contours

The HTC Desire 10 pro features an all-new stunning look, made to shine with a high-contrast metallic gold contour design that elegantly outlines and defines the smartphone’s soft warm matte finish. This bold, polished outline distinctively wraps the edges of the device, encasing the HTC Desire 10 pro’s 5.5” Full HD (1080p) display, and contrasting with the eye-catching body in one of four distinct color themes: Stone Black, Polar White, Royal Blue and Valentine Lux.

Sitting on the back of the Desire 10 pro is an ultra-fast fingerprint sensor that brings convenience to your fingertips: the fingerprint sensor helps secure your device, but quickly unlocks at just the touch of your finger. The sensor recognizes your fingerprint from almost every angle and position, and even lets you take selfies with it – simply put your finger on the fingerprint sensor to quickly capture a selfie or start recording a selfie video.

Amazing imaging experience

The HTC Desire 10 pro promises one of the best camera experiences around by delivering features normally reserved for flagship phones. Starting with a 20MP main camera, the Desire 10 pro provides extraordinary detail in every shot. Pro-like features are included, with DSLR-like control over your photos and handy preset options such as sport mode and night mode that let you quickly re-adjust the camera settings on the go.

Advanced functions such as intelligent Electronic Image Stabilization provide smooth videos even with shaky hands, and Auto HDR on both the front and rear camera combines multiple images into a single, clear photo that looks amazing even when taken in low light or shadows. And finally to keep with life’s quickest moments, the laser autofocus makes taking clear, focused pictures a breeze and you never miss your shot.

See your selfies in new ways

Desire 10 pro has been designed to give you the best possible selfie experience. Snap your best selfies with the 13MP selfie camera, and if you need to capture even more in one single view, Desire 10 pro features a brand new Selfie Panorama mode. With Selfie Panorama, you’ll capture more scenery and more friends and family in single big, beautiful, printable photo. HTC Desire 10 pro’s super-wide, 150° Selfie Panorama mode is enough to fit a whole football team with room to spare. A built-in screen flash is also available, which can automatically help you take brighter selfies in challenging light conditions day or night, indoors or outside.

As unique as you

The HTC Desire 10 pro also shares the same unparalleled personalization as seen in the HTC 10. Built upon the latest version of HTC Sense, both HTC Desire 10 models are fully customizable to your unique personality. HTC Freestyle Layout frees you from an onscreen grid and lets you get creative. Drag icons, stickers and widgets anywhere. Layer them, overlap them, group them and more. You can even link stickers to apps, and get rid of onscreen icons entirely. The home screen is yours – use it your way.

Express yourself further with HTC Themes, giving you access to thousands of professional looking themes, each with its own icons, background, sounds and more. From pets, wildlife and architecture to sports, travel, and so much more, HTC Themes lets your HTC Desire 10 pro represent your personality and interests so it’s truly one-of-a-kind – just like you.

Performance matters

The HTC Desire 10 pro gives you more space for the things that are important with 4GB of RAM and 64GB of storage space so you can load up on photos, videos, movies, games and more. And if that’s still not enough, the HTC Desire 10 pro also offers SD card support for up to 2TB of expandable memory.

Powering all these photos, games, and more is a blazing octa-core processor in the HTC Desire 10 pro, keeping everything running smoothly. Even at these speeds, battery is never an issue either, with a 3,000mAh battery to keep you snapping photos, surfing the web, and having many hours of fun between charges.

 

HTC Desire 10 Pro Pricing & Availability

The HTC Desire 10 Pro will be available beginning on 26 December 2016 in Malaysia, priced at RM 1,699 / ~US$ 379.

Kuala Lumpur, 14 June 2016HTC today announced the HTC Desire 628 Dual SIM, combining vibrant, high-contrast colour and good looks with powerful specs, in a phone that truly stands out from the crowd. Striking colour combinations and a HD display encase a speedy octa-core processor, super-fast front and back cameras, and HTC’s award-winning BoomSound audio profile to deliver a complete package that is as stylish as it is entertaining.

Available in two colors, Cobalt White and Sunset Blue, the phone boasts two finishes, a soft matte that gives off a beautiful soft-touch feel and a glossy finish that gives it a sparkling and elegant look. At the same time, it’s also lighter and more slender than other phones in its class – just 142g and 70.9mm thin – even while featuring specs that deliver astounding performance.

It’s not only the exterior of the HTC Desire 628 Dual SIM that is stylish and unique: With HTC Themes you can customise everything from wallpapers, icons, fonts and ringtones to suit your personality or mood.

Epic Photos Front and Back

When it comes to capturing those magic moments, the HTC Desire 628 Dual SIM has you covered front and back. The 13 megapixel main camera captures high-resolution photos and detailed 1080p video at up to 30 frames per second, and even takes great pictures in low light with its f/2.0 aperture and BSI sensor.

Plus, you’ll never miss that special photo opportunity with the main camera’s 0.4-second shutter speed. Meanwhile, the 5 megapixel front camera takes Voice Selfies and features Live Makeup, allowing you to look sensational almost anywhere.

 

Next-Level Sound Quality

Press play while you’re wearing your favourite earphones and you’ll hear how the HTC Desire 628 Dual SIM’s BoomSound audio profile enhances every sound, taking your music, films and games to the next level with clear vocals, deep bass and fine audio detail. The multimedia experience is enhanced even further with a 5-inch HD display that lets you see more detail, more drama and more action.

 

All-Day Power and Performance

A great phone is only as good as the processor, memory, and battery that keeps it running smoothly. The HTC Desire 628 Dual SIM packs a 64-bit, octa-core 1.3GHz processor with 3 GB of RAM. 32 GB of built-in storage that can be augmented with MicroSD expansion to a whopping 2 TB, while the whole package is powered with fast 5V/1.5A charging to get you up, running, and out of the door in no time.

HTC Desire 530, 630, 825 Smartphones Launched

Barcelona, Mobile World Congress, February 21, 2016 – With the ambition of creating one-of-a-kind devices, HTC today lifted the lid on its latest smartphones. Inspired by urban streetwear, the design of the three newest editions to the Desire range – the HTC Desire 530, 630 and 825 – bridge the gap between fashion and consumer electronics. Using a specially created micro splash effect on the polycarbonate shell, every single phone is both personal and unique.

 

Standing out – From Fashion to Phones

Playing to people’s personal tastes, their desire to be different and the fact that smartphones are now as much of a fashion accessory as they are a personal hub, HTC’s design team employed a paint process that treats each phone as a canvas. Utilizing specially designed spray nozzles and different settings of pressure and paint viscosity, they were able create an object that not only looks different, but that looks like nothing else on the market.

Coming in a choice of colors – Stratus White Remix with duo color micro splash and Graphite Gray Remix with gold micro splash for the Desire 630 and 825, and Graphite Grey and Solid Stratus White block colors for the Desire 530, these phones deliver something personal for everyone.

Knowing that people like to customize their style and stay ahead of the trends, our design experts also created two-tone snap on cases that split into parts, a lanyard inspired by hand straps on bags and over 25,000 themes that enable you to change your device’s color scheme and background based on your favorite photos.

“HTC has built its reputation on pairing industry-leading design with smart features”, said Chialin Chang, President of Sales, HTC. “But with customers also seeking personalization, and individuality in addition to treating their phones as fashion accessories, we have needed to create something different. So today we’re launching the most unique Desire devices yet.”

 

Sound as it should be heard

But it’s not just about design. Sound is also incredibly important and, whilst music choice is incredibly personal, the demand for high quality audio is shared. Both the Desire 630 and 825 are Hi-Res Audio certified and feature HTC’s revolutionary BoomSound with Dolby Audio technology.

Combined with audio playback, that is four times more detailed than CD quality, you are guaranteed a richer and more dynamic music experience. In select regions, the Desire 630 and Desire 825 will also come bundled with a Hi-Res headset that delivers higher fidelity music straight out of the box.

 

Getting the perfect shot

With young people predicted to take up to 25,000 selfies in their lifetime , imaging quality also needs to hit the mark and so these phones have been specifically designed with a 5MP front facing camera and Auto Selfie and Voice Selfie Modes, that allow you to snap away without pressing a button. The integration of Live Make-Up on the Desire 630 and 825 ensures that you can touch up your face so that it always looks as good as your phone.

Precision engineering continues with an 8MP rear camera on the HTC Desire 530, a 13MP on the Desire 630 and Desire 825 and built-in BSI sensors that increase the amount of light captured, giving you great images whatever time of day. Additional features like burst shot and sweep panorama allow you to freeze movement and create professional looking landscape photos, with Google Photos providing an ideal storage facility for your pictures and videos.

 

Feeling and looking good

[adrotate banner=”4″]With a phone that makes you stand out from the crowd, you want to feel as good as you look. Integrated into the Desire 825, is HTC Sensor Hub – a feature that lets you keep tabs on your wellbeing. Always on, HTC Sensor Hub records your activity, gestures and dynamic movement, providing real-time stats that can be automatically linked to some of the most popular fitness tracking applications, including Runtastic Running & Fitness, Runkeeper, Endomondo Running and Walking, and Google Fit.

 

HTC Desire 530, 630 & 825 Availability

The HTC Desire 530, 630 and 825 will begin rolling out both at retailers and at htc.com, from March 2016. Individual market dates will be released at a later date in 2016.
