The awaited HTC Desire 20 Pro is going to be the brand’s re-entry into the mid-range smartphone segment after a long time. Now, some of the phone’s specifications have been spotted on a Google Play Console listing. The lower mid-range device will interestingly, be HTC’s first phone to launch with Android 10.

HTC Desire 20 Pro could feature LCD display
The price and earlier reports also suggest that the phone will be a lower mid-range device. This means that the possibility of there being an AMOLED screen panel on the device is low. We’re likely to see an LCD panel. Moreover, the fingerprint is still going on the rear of the phone, a design trend that is slowly going extinct since even capacitive fingerprint readers are now going on the side of devices, along with the power button.
There is still no word on when the Desire 20 Pro will be launched. We spotted on Geekbench earlier with mid-range level scores. This suggests that the phone could be a mid-range offering, probably around the Rs 15,000 segment. There is as of now, also no word on whether there will be a non-pro version of the phone in the market.
