After a long silence, HTC is back in the world of smartphone with the two devices are very similar between them, that go to place, respectively, in the middle-high segment and the middle market. Let’s talk about HTC U20 5G and Desire 20 Pro, the latter is already at the center of several rumors emerged in the past few days.

The more handsome of the pair is without a doubt the U20 5G, which provides access to the world of next-generation networks without the adoption of a SoC from the top of the range. HTC has chosen to use the well-balanced Snapdragon 765G for the terminal tip, a solution that should allow the house taiwanese to bring it to market at a more affordable price, without offering waivers special in terms of performance.

About the prices, we don’t have details regarding the price of both smartphones, as well as has not yet been given any official release date, despite the pages of the two devices are already active on the site of the house in taiwan.

Almost no mystery, however, with regard to the technical sheet of the U20 5G and Desire 20 Pro (missing only a few details, like the type of sound offered and the type of memories used, even if we assume the RAM LPDDR4X and storage UFS at least 2.1 for both), since the respective pages, we offer quite a comprehensive device.

Both share the same general lines of design, characterized by the adoption of a large screen with a hole for the camera housing front (6,8″ on the U20 5G and 6.5″ on Desire 20 Pro, FHD+), a module with four cameras with vertical alignment in the back – accompanied by the fingerprint sensor – and a weight quite important in both cases, seen that sforiamo than 200 grams.

Under the hood we find 8GB of RAM and 256GB of internal memory for the U20 5G, while Desire 20 Pro offers a SoC Snapdragon 665 matched to 6/128GB of memory. Both the devices support expansion via microSD slot, but the use of an additional adapter prevents access to the Dual-SIM mode.

A few differences also with regard to the camera compartment, since both are equipped with a module quad cam rear is composed of a main unit 48 MegaPixel camera + a wide angle of 118° with 8-MegaPixel sensor and two sensors 2-MegaPixel, respectively dedicated to the calculation of the data on the depth and macro photos.

The main differences on this sector relate to the presence of the electronic stabilization on the U20 5G and an optical slightly different in the camera macro. The front, however, is 32 Megapixels on a smartphone, 5G, and drops to 25-MegaPixel camera on the Desire hd 20 Pro: none of the two is able to record video with resolution higher than FullHD from the cam to the front, while the rear one reaches the 4K.

Finally, we report the presence of a battery from well 5,000 mAh on both, but only U20 5G provides support to the quick charge Quick Charge 4.0 at 18W, while the younger brother stops to the standard Quick Charge 3.0. The difference that you will notice if you use the loader in the package, since the one offered with the U20 5G is of type QC 3.0. The operating system chosen is Android 10 , and there are no special mentions to the interface used, so we don’t know if we will find a version of the Sense or a launcher practically stock.

Among other characteristics we find the 3.5 mm jack only on Desire 20 Pro, while the U20 5G seems to be able to connect to external displays with resolution up to 4K. It is not clear if HTC makes reference to the support of the video output using Type-C or through the use of mirroring via Wi-Fi. Both, however, offer full support to the technology NFC.
