HTC to launch entry-level Desire 12, leaked retail box confirms

20 February 2018

HTC might be posting one negative record after another, but the company hasn't given up hope and keeps pushing out new devices. A leaked retail box of an HTC phone revealed the Taiwanese company is going to launch a low-end device with basic specs dubbed Desire 12.

Android Authority reported that the HTC Desire 12 will have a Mediatek chipset and 3 GB RAM, coupled with 32 GB storage and a microSD slot for up to 2TB more. The display is going to be 5.5 with HD+ resolution (1440 x 720 pixels), meaning a tall 18:9 ratio panel.

There will be one snapper on the back with 12 MP sensor, phase-detection autofocus and 1080p video recording, while the selfie camera will be 5 MP. The list also reveals 2,730 mAh battery, 4G LTE, dual nano-SIM slots, WiFi 802.11 a/b/g/n and, of course, Bluetooth.

HTC could probably launch the Desire 12 along the flagship U12 that is reported to arrive at a separate event after MWC 2018.
