HTC Desire 12 and 12 Plus are now available in the UAE


HTC has just announced the availability of their affordable yet feature packed devices in the UAE, the HTC Desire 12 and 12 Plus. The devices aim to provide users with the complete smartphone experience without breaking the bank.

HTC Desire 12 and Desire 12 Plus

The Desire 12 comes with a 5.5-inch screen, while the Desire 12 Plus comes with a 6-inch screen. Both devices come with 18:9 edge-to-edge screens and are said to be slim and comfortable to hold. Both come with a 13MP camera, with the difference being that the 12 Plus gets an additional camera for artistic bokeh effects and refocusing shots.

The phones are housed in a casing with a durable acrylic glass back surface. The styling of the devices pay homage to the U11 series. Both devices come with not two, but three SIM and microSD card slots, just in case. All this is supported by the HTC Sense Companion that offers performance enhancements and other intuitive features to make life easier.

Pricing and Availability

The HTC Desire 12 and 12 Plus will be available at all major retailers, online and real world stores, from the first week of May 2018. The phones come in Cool Black, Warm Silver and the original Royal Gold colour variants.


The Desire 12 will retail for Dh729 while the Desire 12 Plus will retail for Dh899. As an introductory offer, HTC will be offering a free screen protector, transparent back cover, guaranteed 48-hour express service, and a 2-year warranty with all purchases.
