HTC has been quite silent about its upcoming smartphone, the HTC Desire 20 Pro. The company has already fallen back due to some Chinese contenders tossing value for money smartphones. HTC, the phone manufacturer that use to make some good flagships and even mid-rangers now arguably has to produce something that competes with the contenders. Now, the rumors about HTC’s upcoming budget device are all-over the Internet.
Just after some leaks and prototypes, the smartphone has now been spotted in live images shared by popular tipster Evan Blass. Blass gives us a closer look at the front and rear profiles of the device that apparently looks similar to the smartphone we saw in the leaks.
The front panel reveals the hole-punch panel with the camera cut-out being on the left-hand side. The overall display seems large and has curved on all the corners. Moving to the rear, the smartphone looks like HTC’s traditional design with a verticle camera array, capacitive fingerprint reader, and the HTC branding. Orating about the cameras, it seems to feature a Quad-camera setup with a dual-tone LED flash.
One of the interesting things we spot is the pattern followed by the glossy and reflective panel. The smartphone doesn’t seem to be built out of plastic and instead it is made out of some glass or other premium material. The bottoms of the device are not visible, but we can still notice the 3.5mm headphone jack and a USB Type-C port.
Other than this, the smartphone was also spotted on GeekBench benchmarking portal with 6GB of RAM running Android 10. It showed an octa-core chipset which is expected to be some Qualcomm Snapdragon 600-series processor.
That’s what we know so far, but HTC has scheduled a launch event for June 16 where we expect to learn some more details on the smartphone.
