The HTC Desire 12 is an entry-level Android smartphone announced by HTC back in March 2018. The device comes with a 5.5-inches IPS LCD display with 720 x 1440 pixels screen resolution and an 18:9 tall aspect ratio which provides a decent graphical experience for its users.

The HTC Desire 12 is powered by a 8-cores Mediatek MT6739 SoC along with 2GB/ 3GB of RAM and 16GB/ 32GB internal storage space in its memory compartment. Camera-wise, there is a 13MP main snapper at the back, as well as a 5MP front-facing selfie cam. Sad to say, unlike its “Plus” version, the Desire 12 itself do not come with a fingerprint sensor as an attempt to cut down its price tag.

In terms of software, the smartphone will run on the Android 7.0 Nougat out of the box. A 2,730mAh non-removable battery is available under the hood to keep its lights on for a decent amount of time.
