HTC smartphone tech company has finally announced it’s newly launched smartphone, the HTC Desire 12s after a notable silence for a couple of months.

The smartphone sports a Snapdragon 435 SoC, a 3,075mAh battery capacity, and a funny looking 13MP rear camera at the back that makes sure you always get a clean and clear shot. Let’s take a look at more of the features this Android smartphone holds.

HTC Desire 12s Display and Design
There is no word on if the HTC Desire 12s uses Glass or Plastic but given that it is a budget device, it most likely uses plastic for the body. The fingerprint sensor is at the usual spot at the back of the device and on top of that is weird looking single camera with an LED flash flash by the side.
The display is a 5.7-inch IPS display with 720p screen resolution with 282ppi. The display features an older 18:9 aspect ratio with enough room up top for the camera, speaker grill and sensor. At the bottom is also small chin. Overall the device weighs just 150 grams, measures 8.3mm in thickness and has three colour options – Black, Silver and Red.
