HTC announces the Desire 19s midranger with triple cam, 3850mAh battery

HTC seems to be coming back to the smartphone market again, first launching a blockchain phone and now following up with a lower midrange device.

Dubbed the HTC Desire 19s, this device starts out with a 6.2-inch HD+ screen, using a small waterdrop notch to hold the selfie camera rated at 16MP. The chin of the phone does not exactly qualify it as bezel less, but it is better than what we have on older phones.

Being the successor to the Desire 12s from last year, this new device opts for a MediaTek Helio P22 chipset under the hood, pairing that with 3GB of RAM and a 32GB expandable storage. Users will have to make do with the Android 9 Pie, as expected, and rely on a fingerprint unlock scanner on the back for biometrics.

Speaking of the back, HTC slapped a triple camera arrangement on the device. The main sensor is rated 13MP, closely followed in vertical arrangements by the 5MP wide angle and 5MP depth snappers.

To round it up, the device will run on a 3850mAh battery equipped with 10W charging. Nowhere near fast charging, but it gets the job done anyways.

As for the pricing, we believe a $195 tag might be too much for a device such as this, but HTC will have its reasons for putting up such a value on this unit.
