Both phones feature a matte plastic finish with a metal trim around the edges and the camera lens.

This helps make the phones flashier than previous Desire models.

For now, both phones will sell only in Europe. The Desire 10 Pro will arrive at the beginning of November, while the Desire 10 Lifestyle will be available towards the end of September for £249, which converts to about $325 and AU$430.

One of the most interesting things about the Pro is the fingerprint sensor on the back, which marks a first for the Desire line.

The Pro is also a large-screen phone, equipped with a 5.5-inch full HD display and an octa-core MediaTek processor. It comes with either 3GB of RAM and 32GB of storage, or with 4GB of RAM and 64GB of storage.

The Desire 10 Lifestyle lacks a fingerprint sensor and the 5.5-inch display has a lower-resolution (but cost-saving) 720-pixel screen.

The camera has also been downsize to 13-megapixels on the back and 5-megapixels on the front.

The phone is powered by a low-end Snapdragon 400 processor, although it can be configured with up to 3GB of RAM and 32GB of internal storage, which should provide better performance from the 2GB/16GB base model.
