Cases of HTC on the smartphone marketlately, to put it mildly, it doesn’t matter. Suffice it to say that for the entire first half of 2020, they presented only one smartphone, and even then it is completely frivolous and also for some reason in India. (If anyone is interested - it was the HTC Wildfire R70).
And finally, something impressive. HTC introduced its first 5G-enabled smartphone in its native Taiwanese market. Let me introduce - HTC U20 5G.
The smartphone is not cheap. 18,990 local Taiwan dollars, i.e. approximately ₽44590 ($ 633).
HTC U20 5G is among smartphones“Pre-flagship” level, so that the filling here is appropriate. Qualcomm Snapdragon 765G processor. Not top-end, but fresh and more than serious. Gaining about three hundred thousand points in AnTuTu.
A lot of memory. 8 GB operational, 256 GB permanent. If you still need to put a memory card - it is possible, standard Micro-SD cards are supported. True, you have to sacrifice a second SIM card. Combined tray.
Huge high-resolution screen with a smallA round neckline in the upper left. 6.8 ″, 1080 × 2400 (387 ppi). The type of screen matrix is not specified, but judging by the fact that the fingerprint scanner is on the back, it is something standard IPS-like.
Very capacious battery - 5000 mAh. Supports Quick Charge 4.0 (18 W) fast charging.
There are five cameras. The set is standard and, for such a price, perhaps even modest. 32 megapixel front camera. Four cameras behind the cameras. 48 + 8 + 2 + 2 MP. Main camera (f / 1.8), wide-angle (118 °), macro camera (2-10 cm), depth sensor.
The frequencies of LTE are quite consistent with Russian. There is an NFC module. There is dual-band Wi-Fi, of course. But there seems to be no normal audio output.
Two colors - white and dark green.
The device should go on sale in August. Whether it will be sold outside the beautiful island is still unknown.
