A recent report had revealed that HTC is working on a mid-range phone called HTC Desire 20 Pro even though it has been encountering losses in its smartphone business. The Taiwanese company is reportedly gearing up to launch its first 5G smartphone in July. It could either be a high-end of a flagship smartphone. The HTC Exodus 1 and HTC U12+ that went official in 2018 were the last flagship phones from the company.
In a recent interview, HTC Taiwan Chen Boyou said that when 5G arrives in Taiwan, HTC will also launch 5G-ready smartphones. It is speculated that the first 5G phone from HTC will debut in July. There is no word on the name and specifications of HTC’s first 5G smartphone. Hopefully, more details on the device will appear in the near future.
On the other hand, HTC is also planning to launch a 4G smartphone in June. The name of the device is not known yet. However, there is a possibility that it could be the HTC Desire 20 Pro smartphone.
The Desire 20 Pro is speculated to be equipped with a Snapdragon 665 mobile platform and 6 GB of RAM. Its back panel may sport a triple camera system and a fingerprint reader. It could be the first punch-hole display phone from the company.
