Is HTC coming back from the dead?
That is the question on everyone’s mind of late after a new handset called the HTC Desire 20 Pro first made an appearance in the form of a leaked render back in April. Nearly two months later, on June 2, several websites reported the existence of the same device after a reference to the device appeared on Geekbench. Today, we have more confirmation about the HTC Desire 20 Pro after the same handset was spotted on the Google Play Console. This certainly adds credence to the existence of the Desire 20 Pro since HTC themselves continue to remain silent as far as any new phone launch is concerned.
Take a look at the screenshot from the Google Play Console below.
From the image above, we can see that the HTC Desire 20 Pro is a budget smartphone that will come powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 665 chipset and shall get the Adreno 610 GPU for graphics. This bit, as you might be aware, was already revealed yesterday. While the display size and type have not been revealed, the image does show that the display’s PPI density is around 400. This means we are looking at a 6.4/6.5-inch panel (with a punch hole) here given that the resolution of 1080 x 2340 pixels has already been confirmed. Also, since this is a proper budget device, we are most likely looking at an IPS LCD panel. The HTC Desire 20 Pro also gets 6GB of RAM and runs Android 10 at launch, as evident from the image above.
Earlier leaks have hinted that the device gets a quad-camera setup at the rear. As of now, we do not have any details pertaining to the rear (and front) camera setup on the Desire 20 Pro. Also, note that the rear panel is where the fingerprint scanner is located. This, unfortunately, is all we know of the HTC Desire 20 Pro as of now.
Update: June 8, 2020: The HTC Desire 20 Pro has now made its appearance on the Bluetooth SIG website.
We will continue to monitor the development of the Desire 20 Pro in the days to come.
