Last week, it was reported that along with HTC U12 with 18:9 aspect ratio display, the company could also be working on a budget model with similar design — HTC Desire 12.
As it turns out, the company is indeed working on the HTC Desire 12. A retail box of the phone has been leaked, which also confirms the phone’s key specifications.
According to the leaked retail box, the HTC Desire 12 will come with a 5.5-inch display having screen resolution of 1440 x 720 pixels. It will be powered by 64-bit quad-core chipset from MediaTek along with 3GB RAM and 32GB internal storage.
The phone will also have a microSD card slot which will enable users to further expand the phone’s storage capacity. As of the camera department, the phone will feature a 12-megapixel rear-facing camera that can shoot 1080p Full-HD videos. There will a 5-megapixel front-facing camera for taking selfies and video calling.
The dual SIM phone will be powered by a 2,730mAh battery. As of now, there is no information available regarding the software but we hope it runs Android Oreo operating system out-of-the-box. Connectivity options on the device include 4G LTE, Wi-Fi a/b/g/n, Bluetooth and GPS.
While most manufacturers have come out with devices featuring 18:9 aspect ratio display, HTC is yet to embrace this new trend. However, HTC is all set to jump the full-screen bandwagon with HTC U12 — the company’s upcoming flagship phone. This phone, which is codenamed HTC Breeze, will bring the full-screen display feature to the company’s entry-level and mid-range lineup.
Since the phone’s retail box has already been leaked, it’s only a matter of time we see images of the HTC Desire 12’s renders or the actual device. As of now, there is no information available about the phone’s pricing and availability.
