HTC announced the Desire 21 Pro, its new smartphone, with a highly controversial price tag. The phone, which is expected to attract attention only in Taiwan, HTC’s homeland, has features that match its level but at a very high price.
Taiwanese technology company HTC, which has one of the most dramatic crash stories in the smartphone industry, announced its new mid-range smartphone HTC Desire 21 Pro. Desire 21 Pro, which is not very successful in terms of price / performance, has features that are not bad for its level.
HTC Desire 21 Pro, which has a perforated screen design like many smartphones of 2020, has a 6.7-inch Full HD + IPS LCD screen. The device, which offers a fluent experience with a 90 Hz screen refresh rate, is a device that is not suitable for one-handed use with its 205 grams weight and 167.1 x 78.1 x 9.4mm size.
Powered by the Snapdragon 690 5G processor, which we have seen in Qualcomm’s smartphones such as the OnePlus Nord N10 and LG K92 5G, the device has 8 GB of RAM and 128 GB of storage that can be increased with a microSD card. The device, which comes with a very large battery such as 5,000 mAh, comes out of the box with Android 11.

A price tag of $428 has been announced for the HTC Desire 21 Pro, which will meet consumers in light lilac and dark blue color options. Reminding that a price tag of approximately $280 has been announced for the OnePlus N10, which has the same processor, will be enough to explain why HTC failed in price/performance.
