The HTC Desire 12, like some of the recently announced HTC smartphones, flaunts a design that’s a combination of 3D liquid glass at the back and metal frames along the sides. Moreover, the Desire 12 also sports a full-screen display with an aspect ratio of 18:9.

This full-screen display measures 5.5-inch diagonally and has a resolution of 1440 x 720 pixels. The smartphone is powered by MediaTek’s MT6739 SoC which is paired with 2 or 3 GB RAM. HTC hasn’t revealed the Android version on the Desire 12, however, it’s reportedly running Android 7.0 Nougat which is a bummer.

For photography, the Desire 12 has a 13 MP camera at the back along with a 5 MP camera on the front. As far as storage is concerned, the 2 GB RAM variant of the HTC Desire 12 comes with 16 GB of internal storage whereas the 3 GB RAM variant comes with 32 GB of storage.

The HTC Desire 12 doesn’t have a fingerprint scanner – either on the front or back – and it does come with Face Unlock feature. That said, Desire 12 ships with a 2730 mAh battery which fuels the entire package.

HTC Desire 12+

Alongside announcing the Desire 12, HTC has also announced the HTC Desire 12+. As evident from the name, the Desire 12+ comes with a screen that’s larger than the Desire 12. While the Desire 12 features a 5.5-inch display, the Desire 12+ features a 6-inch display, albeit with the same HD+ resolution.
