Taiwanese tech giant HTC has silently introduced its brand new Desire 21 Pro 5G, which, as its name implies, is a 5G-enabled mid-range smartphone. It is currently available for pre-order only in Taiwan with no official confirmation on a global launch.
The Desire 21 Pro 5G comes powered by a Snapdragon 690 chipset – with 5G connectivity – paired to 8GB of RAM and 128GB of expandable internal storage. It gets a quad-camera setup at the back, comprising a 48MP primary shooter, an 8MP ultrawide lens, a 2MP macro, and a 2MP depth sensor.
Further, it features a 6.7-inch IPS panel at the front, with a resolution of 1080 x 2400-pixels and a refresh rate of 90Hz. It also supports HDR10 content and gets a hole-punch cutout at the top, which houses a 16MP selfie camera. The phone runs on Android 10 and features a 5,000mAh battery, with support for QC 4.0+ fast charging of up to 18W.
The HTC Desire 21 Pro 5G is priced at TWD 11,990 (around ₹31,313) and is available in a single 8GB+128GB variant. The phone is available in two colours, namely star blue and fantasy purple, and, as mentioned earlier, is only available in Taiwan for pre-orders, with no word on its global release.
