As of now, there is no information about the Desire 19 smartphone. The HTC U19e - not a Galaxy S10e competitor Following in the footsteps of last year's flagship, the HTC U19e is equipped with a large 6-inch display featuring an 18:9 aspect ratio. It comes with HDR10 playback support and is protected by Corning Gorilla Glass on the top.

The U19e runs on the mid-range Snapdragon 710, housing a decently-sized 3930mAh battery and two Iris scanners as an alternative to the rear-mounted fingerprint sensor.

In the camera department, the HTC U19e sports dual cameras on front and rear.

Looking at the rear of the smartphone, HTC has opted for the common vertical dual-camera setup positioned in the top corner. While the specs seem pretty standard for a mid-ranger, I'm digging the look of this phone, especially the "Extraordinary Purple" variant.

The phone measures 156.5x75.9x8mm and weighs 180 grams.

The Taiwanese firm's latest device also sports NFC, HTC's Sense UI atop Android Pie, and dual nano-SIM support. The device comes with a price tag of TWD 14,900 (~$477).

On its part, HTC Desire 19+ packs a 6.2-inch HD+ display with a water-drop notch. If this isn't sufficient, a separate model with 6GB of RAM and 128GB of storage will also be available to purchase.

It is backed by a 3,850mAh battery and includes a USB Type-C port for charging. Talking about the pricing, the HTC U19e is priced at TWD 14,900 (approx Dollars 475 / INR 33,000) and will go on sale starting tomorrow. As of now, there is no information about the availability of both these devices in other markets.

We've reached out to HTC to see whether these phones will release outside of Taiwan, and if there's anything else to know about them, so stay tuned to TechRadar to see if HTC can make a smartphone comeback.
