Hahaha 400EUR for this phone.
Good one HTC. No wonder you are where you are.

The back looks alot better without the fingerprint sensor. Also glad to see a good refresh rate on the screen.

Don't expect much difference in price if it gets an international release, we all know about HTC-XDA's ridiculous pricing ideas.
As others have said, possibly worth it, HTC are always very well made, usualy squeeze better performance out of the hardware than most other makers manage, which makes them a briliant second hand buy, especially if you not worried about having the latest state of the art, over-priced, but cheap materials device.
At least with HTC-XDA, you know that a device will be just as quick/slow in a years time as when new, something that you certainly can't say for that other over pricer, Samsung, doesn't matter what model, if its a Sammy, you know its going to need re-setting/re- flashing after only a few months, even if you regularly move stuff off it, which is ok if you buy devices outright, but causes big warrenty problems if yer daft enough to buy phones on contract, something I've not done for nearly 20 years now.

Davy Jones, 13 Jan 2021I don't think it will escape Taiwan anytime soonAnd even in Taiwan it will sell very bad compared to others like the Asus phones

Well not bad, I never would have guessed HTC will survive to put out a midrange phone with high refresh rate screen. Looks also good. Unfortunately I don't feel optimistic about price and availability.

Alang Praharja, 13 Jan 2021$430 for a midrange phone?? Well..... Pixel 5, Nokia 8.3, LG Velvet, Samsung A71 and Mi Note 10 are midranges too.
All announced for at least $500.

People think because chinese brand would charge $290 for this, other non-chinese are in conditions to do same. Too dumb thinking ...

I'd pay $400 for this HTC over a $300 Xiaomi anyday.
