HTC Desire 21 Pro has officially launched in Taiwan with a high refresh rate display, octa-core Snapdragon processor, quad cameras and a large capacity battery to boot. The Desire 21 Pro is the first phone by HTC to be compatible with 5G networks and features a high refresh rate display.
There’s no word on either the global or India launch of the Desire 21 Pro as the company is yet to reveal availability outside of Taiwan. Here’s everything you should know about the Desire 21 Pro.
HTC Desire 21 Pro features a 6.7-inch Full HD+ (2400 x 1080 pixels) resolution display with a punch-hole cutout in the centre for the selfie camera. The screen supports 90Hz refresh rate and is HDR10 certified. It has a glossy finish on the back and measures 9.4 millimetres, weighing 205 grams. The phone is being offered in blue and purple colour variants.
The Desire 21 Pro is powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 690 5G processor with an octa-core CPU and Adreno 619 GPU. This is paired with 8GB RAM and 128GB storage along with support for a microSD card slot. It runs on Android 10 out-of-the-box.
The phone has a quad-camera setup on the back that consists of a primary 48MP camera, an 8MP ultra-wide-angle camera, 2MP macro camera and a 5MP depth sensor. The rear cameras can record in 4K UHD at 30FPS with support for EIS along with a 16MP selfie camera up front.
The power button on the right edge doubles up as the fingerprint reader and the phone is equipped with a 5,000mAh battery with support for 18W fast charging out-of-the-box.
HTC has priced the Desire 21 Pro at TWD 11,990 which translates to roughly around Rs 30,000 by direct conversion. However, the phone could likely launch at a different price globally and elsewhere.
