HTC Desire 12 Full Specs Review and Price

The HTC Desire 12 is a midrange smartphone with amazing specs and features. The device was first announced before the 2018 Mobile World Congress.

With lots of HTC fans hoping the device would be unveiled during the MWC, well the device is finally here. Boasting of 32GB storage, 3GB RAM and running on Android 8.0 Oreo. Want to know more? Stay with me.

HTC Desire 12 Specs and Features

・ 5.5-inch, IPS LCD capacitive touchscreen, 1440 x 720 pixels
・Android 8.0 Oreo with 3GB RAM
・Quad-core 1.3GHz MediaTek MT6739
・32GB built-in storage and support memory card up to 400GB
・13MP rear camera and 5MP front camera
・ 2730mAh non-removable Li-Ion battery


Made completely from Aluminum Alloy, the Desire 12 was designed to perfection and glows in the presence of light. Sporting curved sides and edges that should be quite comfortable to hold and flaunt. The rear camera and LED flash are horizontal at the top left corner.

Disappointingly, it has no fingerprint scanner, which is a huge let down for a midrange smartphone. Measuring 8.2mm in thickness and weighing just 137g overall, making it really light. You can get the smartphone in Black, Gold and Purple colours.


The Desire 12 is bezel-less and flows with the current 18:9 aspect ratio trend. There’s no fingerprint scanner anywhere at the front which is just utterly disheartening, to say the least. Nonetheless, it has no narrow bezels, just super minimal top and bottom bezel.

Record Full HD videos of 1080 pixels at 30 frames per second. The 5MP selfie camera has f/2.4 aperture and 1.12µm pixel size for cute selfies.
