It has been quite a while since HTC last unveiled a smartphone product for general consumers. Today, the Taiwanese consumer electronics firm announced two new mid-range smartphones, the U19e and Desire 19+.
The HTC U19e is the company's first handset under the U-series to be introduced in 2019, packing mid-tier specs including a Snapdragon 710 SoC paired with 6GB of RAM and 128GB of internal storage. It sports a six-inch FHD+ AMOLED display with support for HDR10 for enhanced video viewing experience.
The phone boasts a dual camera setup at the back, consisting of a 12MP and 20MP shooters. Its camera supports 4K video recording at 30 frames per second. On the front sits a 24MP selfie snapper housed in a sizable forehead. The phone also has a large chin.
The U19e packs a 3930mAh battery with support for QuickCharge 4.0 and it runs Android 9.0 Pie with HTC Sense on top. It will ship in Extraordinary Purple and Modest Green color options.
The HTC Desire 19+, on the other hand, is the company's lower mid-tier device offering, featuring a 6.2-inch HD+ display, MediaTek Helio P35 chipset, 4GB or 6GB of RAM, up to 128GB of internal storage, and 3,850mAh battery, as per Android Central.
The U19e will go on sale in Taiwan from June 12 for NT$14,900 (~$475) while the Desire 19+ will be up for grabs at a starting price of NT$9,990 (~$319) from early July.
