It is easy to forget what HTC used to be. While it is one of the pioneers of Android in the late 2000s, the Taiwanese brand has been largely forgotten in recent years, as Chinese brands push for more feature-packed phones at aggressive prices. That is not saying that HTC has completely left the smartphone business: they do launch a few phones, mostly in the budget and mid-range segment, to stay afloat.
Their recent releases, the 5G-equipped U20 5G and Desire 20 Pro, are solid proof that HTC is not yet throwing the towel. To solidify its compelling 2020 offerings, HTC adds the Desire 20+ to its lineup. This budget mid-range device has attractive features like:
- A Snapdragon 720G processor with 6GB RAM and 128GB internal storage.
- Quad rear cameras comprising of a 48-megapixel main camera, 5-megapixel ultra-wide-angle camera, 5-megapixel depth sensor, and 2-megapixel macro camera.
- A beefy 5000mAh battery
- 6.5-inch LCD display with HD+ resolution and a 16-megapixel selfie camera on top
- Textured back panel with a rear-mounted fingerprint scanner
The Desire 20+ is priced at TWD 8,490(~Php 14.4k) and will be available in Taiwan on October 22. There’s no word yet if HTC plans to sell the Desire 20+ overseas.
