HTC Desire 12 Plus has been leaked. The development follows the leak of the original, smaller variant – HTC Desire 12 – from last month. Said to sport an 18:9 display, the Desire 12’s retail box was also leaked, tipping detailed specifications. Now, detailed specifications of HTC Desire 12 Plus have hit the Web, and point to the use of a 5.99-inch display on what is thought to be an upcoming large-screen affordable smartphone from the Taiwanese electronics giant that’s having a tough time staying afloat in the intensely mobile competitive market.
According to a report by Android Headlines, the HTC Desire 12 Plus is codenamed Breeze Plus – which fits with the Breeze codename that had been leaked for the smaller HTC Desire 12. As per the report, the HTC Desire 12 Plus bears a 5.99-inch HD+ (720×1440 pixels) TFT display with an 18:9 aspect ratio and a pixel density of 268ppi. It is said to be powered by an octa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 450 SoC, clocked at up to 1.8GHz. The Desire 12 Plus is also tipped to bear a 13-megapixel rear camera, and an 8-megapixel front camera.
As for storage, the HTC Desire 12 Plus is reported to feature 32GB of inbuilt storage that’s expandable via microSD card. Connectivity options include support for a range of LTE bands, including Band 3 and Band 40. It is said to be powered by a 2965mAh battery, with Qualcomm Quick Charge 3.0 support that can fully recharge the battery in 2 hours and 10 minutes with a 5V/1.5A charger. It measures 158.24×76.54×8.39mm and weighs 155.01 grams. It can be expected to run Android Oreo, as the Desire 12 was also tipped to run the same version of Android.
To recall, the HTC Desire 12 was first leaked by prolific tipster, Evan Blass (aka @evleaks).
