HTC Desire 12 Plus rumored to come alongside the regular model

HTC Desire 12 Plus rumored to come alongside the regular model
Last month, we reported about one of the smartphones that HTC plans to introduce in the not so distant future – the Desire 12, a mid-range device that might not come alone. New information about HTC's upcoming lineup suggests a Plus version will be unveiled alongside the Desire 12.

Unlike the regular model that packs a quad-core MediaTek processor, the HTC Desire 12 Plus will be equipped with an octa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 450 CPU. Also, the slightly beefed up Desire smartphone will boast a larger 5.99-inch display with HD+ (1440 x 720 pixels) resolution and 18:9 aspect ratio.

Other highlights of the phone include 3GB RAM, 32GB storage, 13-megapixel rear-facing camera, 8-megapixel selfie camera and 2,965 mAh battery. HTC Desire 12 Plus will feature Qualcomm's Quick Charge 3.0 technology, while the battery is rated for up to 26 hours of talk time, 74 hours of music playback, or 21 days of standby time.

It is yet unclear when exactly HTC will reveal the Desire 12 and Desire 12 Plus, but chances are we're going to see them sometime this Spring.

Two main things: 1) Way to big bezels 2) Also the screen resolution is only 720p+ 3) From this site you can see the price is around 18,000 Rs ~ 275-300$ I hope they could change the chipset to snapdragon 6xx. That way they could compete against honor 7

It's sad to say, but, HTC please stop making sub par phones.

I wonder how is this new device considered midrange? Low resolution screen, budget CPU, micro USB probably and probably average camera. Maybe in the world where HTC tends to overprice they phones and solely based on that fact one can call it midrange smartphone. Just my 2 cents.
