HTC's Desire 12 phones are pretty, but unremarkable

HTC Vive Pro pre-orders now live as price of original Vive drops

Unfortunately, HTC has left out BoomSound speakers and audio enhancement this time, there's no fast charging and it also comes with a questionable 2965mAh battery, but thankfully, the headphone jack is present.

Inside is a Mediatek quad-core CPU, which hints at a lower cost for the phone, as does the fact the HTC Desire 12 screen is only a 5.5-inch HD panel. It shares the same design as the Desire 12 but with the addition of a fingerprint scanner on its back and an extra rear camera sensor.

HTC Desire 12+ is larger in size and comes with better specifications.

HTC has just announced two new smartphones, the HTC Desire 12 and Desire 12 Plus. However, the smartphones will go on sale early next month.

All 39 workers abducted in Iraq in 2014 are dead, India confirms
In 2015, one of them, Harjit Masih , managed to flee from the clutches of Islamic State and said all other Indians were killed. On Tuesday afternoon, Swaraj told the Rajya Sabha that the government had confirmed that all the Indians were dead.

While the Desire 12 comes with 2GB/3GB of RAM and 16GB/32GB of internal storage, the Desire 12+ comes only in 3GB RAM variant with 32GB of internal storage. The Desire 12+ comes with a 2,965 mAh battery and will run Android 8.0 along with the HTC Sense UI overlay.

HTC specifically doesn't state the version of Android the phone is running but says that it may change after a software update. The handset has 32GB of native storage and a microSD card slot. These are the first set of non-flagship smartphones from HTC to feature taller 18:9 aspect ratio display with a premium glass design. What we do know, however, is that both devices will be available in Taiwan (HTC's homeland), and the United Kingdom, which probably means it will be officially sold in a number of other European countries as well.

Both will (unfortunately) offer microUSB ports for charging, a headphone jack, a standard array of LTE and Global Positioning System radios, and respectable batteries. The HTC Desire 12 measures 158.2 x 76.6 x 8.4mm, and weighs 157.5 grams. For the front, there is a 5-megapixel shooter with aperture f/2.4, BSI sensor and face detection.

The surprisingly-significant differences between the Desire 12 and the 12+ continue on their camera setups.
