Android version and market relevance

HTC Desire 12 was announced by the company HTC in March 2018 and in the same year official sales began in stores. The device was placed in the series of smartphones HTC Desire. HTC Desire 12 works on Android 7 Nougat, but, unfortunately, this version of the software has not been updated. And before listing all the main characteristics of this model, it is important to note that in HTC Desire 12 implemented support for working with two SIM cards.

And if you want to look at the competitors of this smartphone, then in our catalog on the page “Smartphones of the year 2018” all models of the same year are presented. And it will also be useful to look at the page with smartphones at a similar price, like HTC Desire 12 — this is the price segment page “Affordable smartphones from $100 to $200”.

Screen, body and battery

By the size of the HTC Desire 12 screen, we were assigned to a segment medium large smartphones, considering that the bezels around the screen are very large (we advise you to look at models with thin frames or frameless smartphones). See for yourself, here is IPS LCD-screen with diagonal 5.5″.

Dimensions of the screen dictate to us and the size of the case. At HTC Desire 12 the case turned out very thick — 8.2 mm. Today you can easily choose and buy a new smartphone with a very thin case. The battery in this model has a capacity 2 730 mAh. This model could become a flip smartphone and get into our catalog on a separate page, where all phones with flexible screens are collected. Unfortunately, this did not happen. And therefore, if you are interested in smartphones with such top-end characteristics, we advise you to look at them in our catalog and get a deeper understanding in which direction the entire mobile electronics industry is moving. Perhaps, in a couple of years, every second person on the planet will have such flip smartphones.

Main camera and selfie camera

Take photos and videos on smartphone HTC Desire 12 possible on the main camera (13 MP with a regular lens) and on the front camera (5 MP with a regular lens). We tried to group all smartphones in the catalog into segments and this model with such a main camera got in the middle segment. This is not a very bad camera, but it is no longer a top camera. If you want to buy a smartphone with a really cool camera, then look in the catalog page with camera phones.

Processor and Internal Memory

After a lot of leaks, we now know all characteristics of the HTC Desire 12. The smartphone received 4-core processor on the chipset Mediatek MT6739. RAM is built-in 2 GB and there is a version of 3 GB.

But the most interesting is the built-in memory of 16 GB and plus another option for 32 GB. Looking for memory cards? There is a special slot for card format microSD up to 400 GB.

Price for HTC Desire 12: buy or not to buy?

Buy HTC Desire 12 you can after the beginning of official sales, which start in  May 2018. And now the price from the manufacturer is known — it′s $130 without taxes and fees. The price-to-feature ratio of this smartphone is not bad, because there is a large screen and the camera is not bad, and the frontcamera is so-so.
