HTC Desire 20+ launched with Snapdragon 720G for TWD 8,490 ($295)

Back in June this year, HTC launched two phones in the Taiwanese market named HTC U20 5G & the HTC Desire 20 Pro. Well today, the company unveiled the HTC Desire 20+ & at TWD 8,490 ($295), it is a slightly cheaper offering compared to the Desire 20 Pro that sells for TWD 8,990 ($313).

Just as the Desire 20 Pro, the Desire 20+ is not a 5G phone but interestingly, it packs a much better Snapdragon 720G SOC compared to the Snapdragon 665 of Desire 20 Pro.

There is a completely different design compared to the Desire 20 Pro, except for the textured finish on the back. There is a Quad camera setup placed on the top left in a rectangular camera module, and the fingerprint scanner is also present on the rear. The bottom of the phone has the USB Type-C Port & the 3.5mm headphone jack. The power button is on the right side while the volume rockers are there on the left.

Talking about the Quad camera setup, it includes a primary 48 Megapixel shooter paired with a 5 Megapixel ultra-wide-angle camera, a 5 Megapixel Macro camera & a 2 Megapixel depth sensor. On the front, there is a 16 Megapixel camera for selfies.

Unlike the hole-punch design of the Desire 20 Pro, the HTC Desire 20+ has a waterdrop notch & it is a 6.5-inch 720p panel. So while the display size remains the same, the resolution is reduced to 720p from 1080p. The chipset powering the phone is the Qualcomm Snapdragon 720G & is paired with 6GB RAM + 128GB storage. The storage is expandable.

There is a 5,000mAh battery & the phone supports Quick Charge 4.0. Finally, Android 10 runs out of the box.

HTC Desire 20+ comes in two colors – Orange & Gray. There is only one storage option & the price is TWD$8,490, which translates to around $295. HTC hasn’t revealed whether it is going to launch the phone outside Taiwan, but we doubt that’s going to happen.
