HTC joined the 18:9 display bandwagon by launching the HTC U11 Plus smartphone in late last year. Now, the rumors suggest the upcoming Desire 12 smartphone will be first from Desire series to feature the same 18:9 display. It is codenamed as Breeze and might go official in the next few weeks. While the company launched Desire 10 smartphones 2017, it seems to skip the Desire 11 lineup.
Upcoming HTC Desire 12 to Offer 18:9 Display, MediaTek SoC & 2GB RAM
(February 17th, 2018)
While the flagship devices from HTC at least make some worth for the premium build quality and top-notch specifications, its Desire smartphones are nothing but overpriced devices with outdated specifications. Now, the upcoming HTC Desire 12 also follows the same path with mediocre specifications. We also expect it to cost nothing less than a few hundred dollars. It is mentioned to feature a 5.5-inch display with 18:9 aspect ratio.
Under the hood, it will come powered by an unspecified MediaTek processor. There is 2GB of RAM and 16GB of internal storage which can be further expanded via a MicroSD card slot. In the camera department, the HTC Desire 12 sports a 13MP rear camera and a 5MP selfie camera. With all these specifications, the device will be backed by a 2,730mAh non-removable battery. It should be running on the latest Android 8.0 Oore out of the box.
As of now, the company hasn’t confirmed about its presence at the upcoming Mobile World Congress. Even Huawei and LG are skipping their 2018 flagship smartphone launches at the MWC 2018. While the Samsung Galaxy S9 & Galaxy S9+ will be unveiled at MWC, Huawei has confirmed to launch the Huawei P20 smartphones on March 27th in Paris, France. HTC should unveil the HTC U12 smartphone as the successor to HTC U11 in the coming months.
Latest: HTC Desire 12 Mediocre Specs Confirmed by Leaked Retail Box Image
Last week, we came to know about the specifications of the upcoming Desire smartphone from HTC. Now, the leaked image of the retail box confirms the device name and key specifications. HTC will be soon launching the Desire 12 as the successor to a couple of year’s old HTC Desire 10 Pro. Comparing to other mid-range smartphones from the Chinese manufacturers, the HTC Desire 12 falls flat in every department.
The HTC Desire 12 sports a 5.5-inch display with HD+ (1440 x 720 pixels) resolution. Under the hood is an unspecified 64-bit MediaTek quad-core processor. It comes coupled with 3GB of RAM and 32GB of internal storage. There is also a MicroSD card slot for expanding the storage technically up to 2TB. In the camera department, the HTC Desire 12 sports a 12MP rear camera and a 5MP front camera.
It supports dual SIM dual standby and offers 4G LTE connectivity. The device will be backed by a 2,730mAh battery which might not give more than a day-long usage. With all these mediocre specifications, we at least expect the Desire 12 to run on Android 8.0 Oreo out of the box. Stay tuned on Phone Radar for more details!
