Taiwanese smartphone maker HTC today unveiled its first 5G phone in Taiwan, dubbed the U20 5G. It also happens to be the company's first phone to come with a hole-punch display and a 48MP camera.
The HTC U20 5G is powered by Qualcomm's 7nm Snapdragon 765G chipset, paired with 8GB of RAM and 256GB storage. It has a massive 6.8-inch sized FHD+ display with a hole-punch cutout on the top-left corner, housing a 32MP selfie camera.
On the back of the phone is a quad-camera setup featuring a 48MP primary sensor, an 8MP ultra-wide-angle lens, a 2MP macro lens, and a 2MP depth sensor. It also comes with a 5,000mAh battery supporting 18W fast charging, NFC, and a rear-mounted fingerprint sensor.
Along with the U20 5G, HTC also expanded its Desire lineup with the new Desire 20 Pro. The phone has a smaller 6.5-inch FHD+ display with a 25MP selfie camera and runs on the Snapdragon 665 chipset. Just like the U20 5G, the Desire 20 Pro packs a massive 5,000mAh battery with 18W fast charging and includes a 3.5mm headphone jack as well. Both phones run Android 10 out of the box.
The HTC U20 5G has been priced at TWD 18,990 ($640) in Taiwan and will be available to pre-order in the country starting July 1. HTC Desire 20 Pro, on the other hand, is set to go on sale in Taiwan on June 18 for TWD 8,990 ($303). HTC hasn't announced any plans of launching the two phones outside Taiwan yet.
