Images of HTC’s rumored new phone surface
When my time on Earth is done and if there is something after, I will want to find out the answers to two questions that have been on my mind. One, who shot JFK? The second, what happened to HTC? At one time HTC designed some of the most iconic smartphones in history such as the Xperia X1, the T-Mobile G1 (the first Android phone in the U.S.), the HTC Touch Pro and Touch Diamond, the Nexus One, HTC Droid Incredible, the underrated HTC DROID DNA, and the fabulous HTC One (M7).
HTC’s previous phone was the Desire 22 Pro which was released last July. That device features an LCD screen which weighs in at 6.6 inches and does have a 120Hz refresh rate. The FHD+ resolution is 1080 x 2412. Last year’s phone is powered by the Snapdragon 695 5G application processor and includes 8GB of RAM along with 128GB of storage. The rear triple-camera array features a 64MP sensor, a 13MP sensor for the Ultra-wide camera, and a 5MP depth sensor. A 32MP sensor backs the front-facing camera.
The battery keeping the lights on the Desire 22 Pro has a 4520mAh capacity. The device was never officially launched in the States although it was priced at £399 in the U.K. when it was released last summer.
For those of you still waiting for HTC to take another shot at the high-end Android market, the Desire 23 Pro 5G is not that model But there is still the hope that one day the company can shake off the cobwebs and the rust (both physically and mentally) and deliver another iconic high-end phone.
