    • 4G LTE
    • Fingerprint sensor (rear)
    • 2, 965mAh non-removable Li-ion battery

    Design and Display

    The two smartphones look alike besides the size difference and the additional camera at the back. Between the two smartphones, the HTC Desire 12 Plus is bigger with a nice aluminium body. It also has slim bezels seen in the lesser variant and features a dual camera arranged horizontally with flash at the top left corner. In addition, there is a fingerprint sensor located at the centre towards the upper region.

    Retaining the same resolution as its smaller model and the same 18:9 aspect ratio. However, the display here is much bigger at 5.99-inch while the former has a size of 5.5-inch. This leaves the smartphone with a pixel density of 268 PPI.

    Battery and Camera

    The smartphone is kept on by a non-removable 2, 965mAh Li-ion battery which is disappointing but expected on such a midrange device.

    Unlike the other smartphone, the HTC Desire 12 Plus comes with a dual camera arrangement on the rear end and a single one at the front. There is a combination of a 13MP and 2MP rear camera. This is one of the differences between the two smartphones as the HTC Desire 12 only has the 13MP camera solely. On the other hand, there is an 8MP front camera.

    Hardware and Software

    HTC goes for a Qualcomm chipset instead of the MediaTek offering featured in the Desire 12. You’ve got a Qualcomm SDM450 Snapdragon 450 processor clocking at 1.8GHz and an Adreno 506 GPU in charge of graphics munching on the smartphone.

    Moving further, there is also a 3GB internal memory that is accompanied by a 32GB available storage space from the factory some of which is occupied by the system software. On a better note,  it supports expansion by a MicroSD card up to 400GB and features the latest Android 8.0 Oreo OS from the box.

    Pricing and Availability

    The phone costs about 75,000 naira- 80, 000naira depending on your location and the variant.
