HTC today has unveiled two new smartphones with 18:9 display under its Desire series. While they might look similar at a glance, there are quite a number of things that separated these phones which are called Desire 12 and Desire 12+.
The smaller of the two, the Desire 12 is equipped with 5.5-inch HD+ IPS display and powered by a MediaTek MT6739 processor. It also carried 3GB of RAM alongside 32GB internal storage as well as 2730mAh battery.
As for the Desire 12+, the phone comes with a slightly larger display at 6-inch IPS display even though it still feature the same HD+ resolution. It also powered by a different processor in the form of Qualcomm Snapdragon 450 while its RAM and internal storage still the same as per Desire 12. The battery on Desire 12+ also has bigger capacity but not by much at 2965mAh.
Another factor that differentiate both devices is their cameras. Specifically, the Desire 12+ is equipped with dual rear camera which features 13MP and 2MP sensors alongside an 8MP front camera with an LED flash of its own. The Desire 12 on another hand offers a much more straight forward setup with 13MP rear camera and 5MP front camera.
Scheduled for release this April, HTC has yet to reveal the local pricing for either of these devices for Malaysia. Nevertheless, the company has stated that these devices wouldn’t break the bank which is not surprising since they are part of the Desire family after all.
