The U20 5G may disappoint you with its Snapdragon 765G processor, especially at the $640 price tag
Surprisingly, this Tuesday was a busy day for HTC. After introducing the Vive XR Suite, the company kept its promise to introduce its first 5G phone, the HTC U20.
Compared to other flagship smartphones, the U20 5G may disappoint you because of the Snapdragon 765G processor, especially with its $640 price tag. The only advantage of this processor is the integrated 5G modem that in theory will give better battery life. The same chip has been installed on the LG Velvet smartphone.
The U20 has an FHD+ LCD display instead of an AMOLED display and as a result a fingerprint scanner instead of an optical version. This was done to reduce the cost of the smartphone but at least HTC has implemented a 32-megapixel selfie “punch-hole” camera.
The rest of the hardware is standard with 8GB of RAM, 256GB of memory, 5,000mAh battery, and four rear cameras: 48-megapixel main, 8-megapixel ultra-wide, 2-megapixel macro and 2-megapixel bokeh.
