HTC is once again pushing the envelope for entry-level devices with the upcoming Desire 12.

Last week, rumors about a possible Desire 12 smartphone from HTC started to surface, with speculators placing the model in the entry-level bracket. Seems like the rumors were true, as Android Authority already managed to get hold of a Desire 12 retail box, which displays the most impotant specs.

The Desire 12 will be powered by 64-bit quad-core MediaTek SoC (most likely the MT6739 model) coupled with 3 GB of RAM and 32 GB of internal storage. Not bad at all for an entry-level. Screen-wise, the 5.5-inch display is limited to 720 x 1440 resolution, but that is to be expected for a budget solution. The camera setup integrates a 12 MP rear sensor able to record 1080p clips, and a 5 MP front sensor. Communications options include WiFi + Bluetooth and 4G LTE, while the model supports dual SIM nano sims and a microSD card. There also is the 2,730 mAh battery that should provide 10-14 hours of continuous use.

Curiously enough, the retail box does not reveal any renders or a schematic view of the device. Pricing and availability information is also unknown at this point, but HTC could reveal the Desire 12 at MWC 2018.

I stepped into the wonderous IT&C world when I was around 7. I was instantly fascinated by computerized graphics, be them from games or 3D applications like 3D Max. I like to keep myself up to date with all the new technologies that get released at an ever increasing rate these days. I'm also an avid SciFi reader, an astrophysics aficionado and, as of late, a crypto geek.
