HTC Desire 12+ HTC Desire 12

HTC today has unveiled two new smartphones with 18:9 display under its Desire series. It shares the same design as the Desire 12 but with the addition of a fingerprint scanner on its back and an extra rear camera sensor.

On the other hand, the HTC Desire 12+ runs Android 8.0 Oreo and has a larger, 5.99-inch HD+ (720x1440 pixels) IPS LCD display with a similar 18:9 aspect ratio. With connectivity options such as Bluetooth, 4G LTE, Wi-Fi and Global Positioning System, the smartphone is armed with a 2,730mAh battery, German site areamoble.de reports. In terms of design, it gets an HTC U11 inspired Liquid Surface design and it uses a durable acrylic glass back surface with a seamless frame with curved edges. Similarly, the Desire 12 can have either 16 or 32GB of storage - both of which can be expanded up to 2TB. Unlike the "Plus" variant, the Desire 12 misses out on a fingerprint sensor and dual camera setup. The phone is powered by a MediaTek MT6739 SoC, mated with 2GB/ 3GB of RAM and 16GB/ 32GB inbuilt storage, respectively. Over at the front, the Desire 12+ gets an 8MP f/2.0 selfie camera with beautification features and LED flash. It's already on pre-order with actual availability starting early next month.

Moving over to the Desire 12+, there's a 6-inch display with the same aspect ratio and resolution a the Desire 12.

The main change is to the camera on the rear of the phone, with the 13MP sensor joined by a 2MP option, created to give some background blur bokeh effects.

The HTC Desire 12+ is also running a Qualcomm Snapdragon 450 CPU under the hood, with slightly more grunt being fed into the handset.

With a 2,965mAh battery, connectivity options on the smartphone include Bluetooth, Wi-Fi, GPS, and 4G LTE with VoLTE. It's also been confirmed to run Android 8.0 Oreo, but HTC - oddly - hasn't said which version of Google's OS will power the HTC U12.
