We are all patiently waiting to see what HTC has up its sleeve for its 2018 flagship. However, while we all wait to see what’s to come, HTC is continuing to move forward. Today, the company has announced two of its latest budget-minded options with the Desire 12 and Desire 12 Plus.

There aren’t too many differences between the Desire 12 and Desire 12 Plus, starting with the similar overall design. Both devices feature the same “liquid surface” design that was introduced with the HTC U11.

As for the specs, the smaller Desire 12 features a 5.5-inch display with an aspect ratio of 18:9. Powering the device is the MediaTek MT6739 chipset, which has been coupled with either 2GB or 3GB of RAM and 16GB or 32GB of expandable storage.

On the camera side of things, we don’t have anything too fancy. HTC has included a 13MP rear-shooter, and a 5MP selfie camera which should do the job in a pinch. Finally, HTC has packed a mediocre 2,730mAh battery into this package, which is a bit less than we could have hoped to see.

Moving to the Desire 12 Plus, we have a 6-inch display with an aspect ratio of 18:9 and the same 1440 x 720 resolution as its little brother. HTC opted to up the ante a bit with the 12 Plus, as we have the Snapdragon 450 chipset on board.

This processor has been coupled with 3GB of RAM and 32GB of expandable storage. On the front, there is a standard 8MP selfie camera, while a dual-camera setup graces the rear. This setup features a primary 13MP sensor, along with a secondary 2MP sensor.

Perhaps the most surprising aspect of the Desire 12 lineup is HTC’s decision to keep the 3.5mm headphone jack. It was a far-gone conclusion that HTC would be moving away from keeping this, but the company has seemingly reversed its course.

While HTC has announced these new devices, there has been no information revealed regarding pricing or availability. We’ll have to keep our eyes peeled for this information, and we’ll be sure to bring it to you once available.

In the meantime, sound off in the comments and let us know what you think about the HTC Desire 12 lineup.
