If we look at the news coverage of the smartphone industry ever since the beginning of this year, it’s not difficult to see that HTC has had some of the most silent days of its life. The company has not been a subject of any leaks, rumors or any kind of news coverage for the most part of 2019. However, that changed today as the company launched two new mid-range smartphones called HTC U19e and HTC Desire 19+. And here we’re going to take a look at what both these devices have got to offer.
Let’s start with HTC U19e first of all. This phone comes with a 6-inch 2,160 x 1,080 px OLED display, Snapdragon 710 processor, 6GB RAM, 128GB storage and 3,930 mAh battery. The main camera unit of device houses 12mp regular (f/1.8) + 20mp telephoto (f/2.6) lens with 2x zoom, while the selfie camera is a 24mp f/2.0 snapper. The device has also got a 2mp Iris scanner, but if you like keeping things traditional then you also have a fingerprint sensor on the back. The device will be available from tomorrow (i.e. 12th of June) in Taiwan. It comes in Extraordinary Purple and Modest Green color options, and it’s priced at TWD 14,900 (about €420).
HTC Desire 19+
This one is more affordable than U19e, and it comes with 6.2-inch display, Mediatek Helio P35 chipset, 4GB/6GB RAM options, 3,850 mAh battery, triple-lens 13mp + 8mp ultra wide lens + 5mp depth sensor camera, and 16mp selfie camera. The device will go on sale in Taiwan in the early days of July, and it’ll cost TWD 9,990 (€280) for 4GB RAM model. The 6GB RAM model, on the other hand, will cost TWD 10,990 (about €310).
Interestingly, nothing is known about the global availability of these devices at the moment. We’ll let you know when something is known about that!
