HTC released the HTC Desire 12+ Android smartphone in May 2018. A device that falls into the Mid-Range category. The device comes with a 6.00-inch IPS LCD capacitive touchscreen display and a resolution of 720 pixels x 1440 pixels.
The HTC Desire 12+ also arrives with 3GB of RAM, which is quite unlike some mid-rangers. The phone packs 32GB of inbuilt storage that can expand up to 2GB with a microSD card.
In terms of camera quality, the HTC Desire 12+ sports a 12-MP camera on the rear and an 8-MP front sensor for selfies.
Here’s a quick review of this mid-range device.
Design and Display
Firstly, the HTC Desire 12+ has dimensions of 158.2 x 76.6 x 8.4 mm (6.23 x 3.02 x 0.33 in). And it weighs 157.5 g (5.57 oz).
This beautiful device has a 6.0-inch IPS LCD Capacitive touchscreen, with 16M colors. With a resolution of 720 x 1440 pixels, it also has an 18:9 aspect ratio (~268 ppi density).
Furthermore, this Smartphone also supports Multitouch. With a rear mounted Fingerprint Scanner, it comes in three colors: Black, Silver, and Gold.
Hardware and Software
The HTC Desire 12+ smartphone comes with Android 8.0 Oreo operating system.
The HTC Desire 12+ is powered by a Qualcomm SDM450 Snapdragon 450 chipset with a 32-bit processor. It also comes with an Octa-core processor that clocks at 1.8GHz.
Furthermore, it uses an Adreno 506 GPU for graphics handling.
This smartphone offers 3GB of RAM and 32GB of inbuilt memory that you can expand up to 400GB using a microSD card. Multi-tasking isn’t a problem on this device.
Sensors on this device are Fingerprint (rear-mounted), accelerometer, proximity, and compass.
Camera and Battery
HTC Desire 12+ comes with a Dual: 13 MP + 2 MP, f/2.2 rear camera. With phase detection autofocus, and LED flash.
Also, it boasts of other features like Geo-tagging, touch focus, face detection, HDR, and panorama.
Meanwhile, for selfie lovers, there’s an 8 MP, f/2.0, 1080p selfie camera for those amazing selfies.
The HTC Desire 12+ comes with a Non-removable Li-Ion 2965 mAh battery. This is where I’m disappointed with them.
The HTC Desire 12+ sells at 250 EUR, which is equivalent to N106,470. But the price may vary depending on your location.
