HTC U19e

The U19e and Desire 19+ are HTC latest smartphones that were unclad in Taiwan earlier today. The U19e is a mid-flagship as its specs openly proclaimed – it features a 6-inch Full HD+ IPS display, is powered by a Snapdragon 710 chipset, sports dual rear-facing camera, and is backed by a 3930mAh battery.

The phone comes in 6GB RAM/128GB storage version only with a MicroSD slot provided to expand it up to 2TB. A 24MP camera resides at the front alongside a secondary 2MP camera with Iris recognition baked inside. There is a fingerprint sensor at the back if face unlock is not your thing.

Audio is delivered via dual stereo speakers, but it lacked a 3.5mm audio jack. Instead, the U19e relied on USB-C to deliver wired audio. Quick Charge 4.0 filled the battery up within minutes.

HTC Desire 19 Plus

The Desire 19+ is a lower mid-ranger with its most prominent feature being its triple rear camera (13MP+8MP+5MP). It has a 6.2-inch HD+ screen with a waterdrop notch and packed a MediaTek Helio P35 chipset. The phone comes in 4GB RAM or 6GB RAM models accompanied by 64GB or 128GB storage, respectively.

At the front of the Desire 19+ sitted a 16MP front shooter, while a fingerprint sensor occupied the back. A 3,850mAh battery powered the phone.
