These two devices were in the news for quite some time now, and finally, HTC has made them official. Both the smartphones will be available in Black and Silver colour options.

As the name suggests, the HTC Desire 12 Plus is the larger and superior of the two smartphones. It's a choice that results in a product that still looks slick, but feels much less premium when handled. Both phones are HTC's cheapest to sport 18:9 aspect ratio displays. The Desire 12+ comes with a 2,965 mAh battery and will run Android 8.0 along with the HTC Sense UI overlay.

Talking about the Desire 12 first, this handset has a 5.5-inch HD+ IPS LCD display of 720x1440 pixels resolution. Under the hood, the device gets a Snapdragon 450 processor with 3GB RAM and 32GB internal storage. There is a microSD card slot for expandable storage, the battery measures in at 2730mAh, and there are dual SIM card slots, a 3.5mm headphone jack, and a microUSB port for charging. While that may be it for the standard 12, the 12 Plus also ships with a secondary 2MP rear camera for portrait mode effects. Both the camera units can record videos up to 1080p @ 30fps. Pre-orders for the Desire 12+ are on and availability is said to commence early next month.

The HTC Desire 12 flaunts a 5.5-inch 18:9 display with the resolution of 720 x 1440 pixels. The SoC has only a single quad-core ARM Cortex-A53 cluster, and the PowerVR GE8100 GPU isn't anything to boast about either. The Desire 12 offers a MediaTek MT6739 chipset along with 2GB or 3GB of RAM, 16GB or 32GB of expandable storage, and an up to 2TB microSD card slot. On the connectivity front, the HTC Desire 12+ supports 4G VoLTE, dual-SIM, BlueTooth 4.2, Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n (2.4 GHz), GPS, and micro USB port. A 13-megapixel shooter (BSI sensor, f/2.2 aperture) lies on the back of the phone, while a 5-megapixel snapper (BSI sensor, f/2.4 aperture) can be found on the front side of this phone.
