HTC makes a Comeback with 5G smartphones

HTC is trying hard to make a comeback. WIll these new 5G devices help?

HTC smartphones were some of the most popular smartphones in the past. But with the rapid evolution of the smartphone industry, HTC lost its image. HTC is now looking to make a comeback with modern design and 5G capable smartphones. The HTC U20 and HTC desire 20 pro are the two smartphones that will be launched in Taiwan soon. Launch in other markets will be followed soon.

HTC U20 is the 5G device among the two and is powered by SD765G and 8GB of RAM. The battery is 5000mAH and storage of 256GB. The HTC 20 Pro on the other hand is powered by SD665 6GB of RAM and 128GB of Storage. Same 5000mAH battery. The Display size on the 5G model is 6.8inch and on the non 5G model is 6.5inch. Engadget reports the price will be around 600$ for the 5G version and around 300$ for non 5G variant.

The U20 will be available in the Taiwan market from July 1st while the 20 Pro will go on sale from June 18th. Though the U20 supports 5G it is unclear whether it supports the mmWave or low sub 60HZ reports XDA. The cameras are 48MP(quad) rear setup and 32MP front camera. On paper, these smartphones are similar to other mid-rangers. This is not enough to take HTC out of the dark.

Also, the pricing is not competitive. The pricing with average specs has been the reason for HTC’s failure for the past few years and still, it continues to do the same. But let’s be honest the device doesn’t look bad. Only the price makes it bad. Because if you are spending 600$ then you will get an SD865 device.
