HTC U20 5G & Desire 20 Pro launched in Taiwan

HTC launched a new 5g phone today in Taiwan named the HTC U20 5G. This is a mid-range phone from HTC with 5G support & there is no official word from the brand on the launch outside Taiwan. Along with this, the HTC Desire 20 Pro was also made official which looks the same but is cheaper since it has different internals.

HTC U20 5G

The phone features a punch-hole design on the front & a matte back panel with Quad cameras & the fingerprint scanner. So, there isn’t anything special in terms of design.

There is a 6.8-inch LCD panel on the front with a 20:9 aspect ratio & Full-HD+ resolution. The U20 5G comes with Snapdragon 765G SOC paired with 8GB RAM & 256GB storage that is expandable via microSD card. There is a big 5,000mAh battery & up to 18W Fast Charging support.

The Quad camera setup on the rear includes a primary 48 Megapixel camera with f/1.8 aperture lens, a secondary 8 Megapixel ultra-wide-angle camera with 118-degree FOV, a 2-megapixel macro & a 2-megapixel depth sensor. The primary rear camera can shoot 4K videos. The HTC U20 5G has a 32 Megapixel camera for selfies.

Finally, Android 10 runs out of the box.


The Desire 20 Pro has the same design but there is a carbon fiber finish on the rear that differentiates it from the U20 5G that has a matte back. One of the biggest differences is that it has the Qualcomm Snapdragon 665 SOC compared to the Snapdragon 765G that powers the U20 5G.

There is a  6.5-inch Full-HD+ display on the front with a punch-hole cutout that has the 25 Megapixel camera in it. The Quad camera array includes a primary 48 Megapixel camera paired with an 8 Megapixel ultrawide, a 2 Megapixel macro & a 2 Megapixel depth sensor. So while the front camera is different, the rear camera setup is the same as the HTC U20 5G.

There is 6GB RAM, 128GB storage, a 5,000mAh battery & Quick Charge 3.0 support (compared to QC 4.0 of U20 5G). Unlike the U20 5G that doesn’t have a headphone jack, the Desire 20 Pro comes with both the USB Type-C port and the headphone jack.

Well, there is no information regarding the pricing yet as well as launch outside the Taiwanese market.
