HTC Desire 12s goes official with Snapdragon 435 SoC – Price, Specifications


HTC is yet not out of the game of producing smartphones. The company is making some decent smartphones, but the only problem with these smartphones is the price to value ratio. The new offering from the company is the Desire 12. With that said, the company wants to revive its Desire series. The Desire 12s borrows a lot of its elements from the HTC U12 Life. The company doesn’t reveal about the materials that it is using on its smartphones. We expect the smartphone to be a combination of glossy and matte plastic finish.

The smartphone comes along with an 18:9 aspect ratio display that measures 5.7″ diagonally. Sadly, the resolution on the screen is set at 720 x 1440px(HD+) only. The side bezels on the screen feel thin, and lower ones are decent for an entry-level phone too. The HTC Desire 12s runs on Snapdragon 435 SoC, and it pairs along with it either 3/32 or 4/64GB of configuration. Anyways, you can expand the storage on the smartphone via a Micro-SD card slot.

The optics on the smartphones are decent but not the greatest that you can find on a midrange smartphone. At first glance, you may think that the handset has a dual camera setup. Instead, there is a 13MP unit with f/2.0 aperture and a LED flash. The selfie camera on the handset is a 13MP unit, but the lens is f/2.2. The fingerprint reader is on the back.

Rest, the handset runs on Android 8.1 Oreo with HTC’s Sense UI on the top of it. The handset has a decent 3,075mAh battery, but there is no support for fast charging on it. You can get yourself the latest offering from HTC in Black, Silver, and Red Colors. The 3GB/32GB configuration will set you back for TWD 5,990 ($195), while the 4GB/64GB unit costs TWD 6,990 ($225).
