The HTC Desire 12 Plus is the more sophisticated variant of the of the HTC Desire 12 smartphone that was launched earlier by the company. It brings more features and a more pleasant design to the newest generation of the HTC desire line of smartphones.
The plus variant is a true definition of a smartphone designed to compete in 2018.
On looking at the phone your eyes will first of all strike the cutting edge design HTC blessed this smartphone with.
The top and bottom bezels present but cut to be almost thin enough but it could hold the front selfie camera, the front facing ear speaker for answering calls and the sensors.
The device spots a dual rear camera and rear fingerprint scanner which were quite different from the ordinary version of the HTC desire smartphone.
Internally, the device is powered by a Snapdragon chip and an Adreno graphics processor from Qualcomm. Unlike the HTC Desire 12, the Plus version has an octa-core processor.

The body of this smartphone was made with the exact same Aluminum Alloy body as the ordinary desire.
There’s also a LED flash by the side, all in a horizontal format, making the rear look more sleek and attractive.
The fingerprint scanner was introduced in this Plus version finally, with the HTC logo underneath. Turning over to the sides, it measures 8.4mm in thickness and weighs 157.5g overall, a very light device even with all its features. It’s available in Black, Purple and Gold.
The Plus version is almost bezel-less as well, dishing out an 18:9 aspect ratio and a much taller display. No narrow bezels in sight, with super minimal top and bottom bezel. The top bezel houses the usual features, while the bottom is vacant.
