HTC Launches U19E And Desire 19 Plus; Starts From RM1323

HTC has two (mediocre) new phones, proving it's not dead just yet

HTC Taiwan general manager Darren Chen said the company will launch more smartphones in the second half of this year or next year. So, we're intrigued to see the company is back with more - even though we're curious as to what happened to HTCs 13 through to 18.

The processor powering the HTC U19e is the 10nm Qualcomm Snapdragon 710 that comes with Adreno 616 GPU.

It's reportedly on sale for $475 (roughly £375, AU$680), so it's the high-end handset of the two. The HTC U19e has a dual camera setup on the rear - a 12MP f/1.8 regular snapper and a 20MP f/2.6 2x telephoto camera. Coming to the Desire 19+, it the first HTC smartphone to come with triple camera setup and waterdrop notch display.

HTC has unveiled two new smartphones after a gap of six months.

One can even expand the internal storage using the microSD card slot.

The Taiwanese firm's latest device also sports NFC, HTC's Sense UI atop Android Pie, and dual nano-SIM support.

The HTC U19e is powered by a 3,930mAh battery with Quick Charge 4.0 support. Then you've also got a rear fingerprint scanner as well as iris unlock via a dedicated sensor between the two front cameras.

The price, as mentioned in the beginning, is TWD 14,900, which translates to around $474.

HTC U19e comes with a 6-inch Full-HD+ IPS LCD display with a resolution of 1,080 x 2,160 pixels and a layer of Corning's Gorilla Glass. It is priced at TWD 14,900 (~ United States dollars 475 / INR 32,900) and will go on sale in Taiwan starting June 12. Both models will be available in Star Can Blue and Jasmine White color options.

Under the hood, the smartphone is powered by an octa-core MediaTek Helio P35 processor.

On the other hand, the price of HTC Desire 19+ starts from 9,990 Taiwanese dollars (about 22,100 rupees). Moreover, the phone has a 3,930 mAh battery. Furthermore, there is also a 16-megapixel shooter on the front for selfies. The rear camera setup is comprised of a 13MP main sensor, 8MP ultrawide angle and a 5MP depth sensor.
