Two months after unveiling the U20 5G and Desire 20 Pro, HTC has finally released the Desire 20 Pro. The mid-range phone is now available for purchase in Europe and is priced below the Pixel 4a and Xperia 10 II, although it has to be said that it's also a lot less impressive than those two.

HTC unveiled its latest devices, the U20 5G and Desire 20 Pro, back in June. Two months after, the company has released the Desire 20 Pro across Europe, and it's actually pretty decent. 

The Desire 20 Pro itself isn't a world-beater. It sports a 6.5-inch FHD+ display. There are no mentions of a refresh rate or OLED, so it's logical to assume it's a 60 Hz LCD panel. That's a bit underwhelming these days, admittedly. Under the hood is Snapdragon 665, 6 GB of RAM, and 128 GB of storage. 

At the back of the phone is a quad-camera setup: a 48 MP main snapper, 8 MP ultra-wide-angle camera, 2 MP macro lens, and 2 MP depth sensor. A 25 MP selfie camera is housed within a hole punch. Other specifications include a 5000 mAh battery with Quick Charge 3.0 support, NFC, MicroSD slot, and a 3.5mm headphone jack.

The Desire 20 Pro is now available for purchase in the UK, with a price tag of £269. It's also on sale in France, the Netherlands, Spain, Italy, and Poland and will cost €279 in those markets. That's not great pricing especially since the Xperia 10 II can be had for fifty quid more in the UK, and is a much better package. However, it's still a better price tag than HTC has tended to saddle their phones with over the past few years.
