HTC has silently unveiled its new 5G smartphone, it’s the Desire 21 Pro 5G. It comes with mid-range specs as HTC mentions on its official website offering a glimpse of its specs as well as pricing and availability.
The front of the phone is fully covered with a 6.7-inch IPS LCD panel with FullHD+ resolution and a 90Hz refresh rate that also happens to support HDR10 content. Under the helm is a Snapdragon 690 chipset that supports 5G and it’s coupled up with 8GB of RAM and 128GB of onboard storage. There are no other variants, but you get a slot for microSD expansion, in case you need it.
We have four cameras at the back: a 48MP main sensor with an f/1.8 lens, an 8MP ultrawide with an f/2.2 lens, and two 2MP units for macro and depth perception. For selfies, there’s a 16MP sensor put inside the punch-hole cutout.
The phone ships with a 5,000mAh battery with 18W charging and Android 10 out of the box. There’s a fingerprint scanner on the right side of the phone.
As for the price, the HTC Desire 21 Pro 5G costs TWD 11,990, which is about NPR 50,000 in Nepal. That’s a premium amount for a phone which isn’t as capable, but we expect the price to be different in other parts of the world.
