HTC Desire 12 partial specs confirmed by leaked retail box

HTC Desire 12 partial specs confirmed by leaked retail box
HTC is definitely not in a good spot and I'm not sure how long we'll continue to report on the company's smartphones since there might not be any in the not so distant future. What we do know for sure is the Taiwanese handset maker will launch one more flagship smartphone this year, the HTC U12.

However, we're not going to talk about the top-tier smartphone, but about a rather entry-level device that HTC could introduce very soon. The unannounced HTC Desire 12 looks pretty tempting for those looking for a budget-friendly handset.

The folks over at AndroidAuthority got their hands on the phone's retail box, which confirms some of the specs. According to the box, the HTC Desire 12 will be powered by a 64-bit quad-core MediaTek processor, paired with 3GB RAM and 32GB internal memory.

The phone will be equipped with a 12-megapixel rear-facing camera and a secondary 5-megapixel selfie snapper. Hopefully, the Desire 12 will ship with Android Oreo on board, but we do know for sure it will sport a 5.5-inch HD (720 x 1440 pixels) display with 18:9 aspect ratio.

Also, HTC has decided to include a 2,730 mAh battery and add dual-SIM support. Among other features to make it inside the Desire 12 there's 4G LTE and microSD card support (up to 2TB).

HTC Desire 12 may be unveiled along with the company's flagship, the U12, but it is yet unclear if the entry-level smartphone will make it to Mobile World Congress (MWC) 2018.

Part of me says it won’t cause of the MediaTek, then another says it will because it’s HTC
