In 2017, HTC concentrated mainly on models with high and medium price shelves, but this does not mean that the company is going to abandon the Desire series. Moreover, in the near future, its new representatives will appear on the market. What do we know about the HTC Desire 12?
HTC does not abandon the line of Desire
Initially, the Desire brand was associated with the best HTC models, but now the Taiwanese use it mainly in the context of cheaper solutions. The latter should be a model with the code name “Breeze”, which on the market will appear under the name HTC Desire 12, as recently reported by Evan Blass.
This information was confirmed by the Android Central site, which posted a photo of the fragment of the Desire 12 box with information about the device specification.

The latest data show that the Desire 12 will be an inexpensive smartphone with a screen size of 18: 9. HTC should deliver a 5.5-inch panel with a resolution of HD + (1440 x 720 pixels), and the brain of the device will have four nuclear chip from Mediatek, the processor model is still unknown. It should cope with the 720p panel, but it’s not worth counting on high performance.
The 12 megapixel camera (with phase detection) and 5 megapixels, as well as the 2730 mAh battery, do not look bad on models from the lowest price segment, but the decisive importance will be how cheap the product will be. Below you can find the known data on the technical specification:
