Design and Display

HTC U20 5G announced as the company’s first 5G phone alongside Desire 20 Pro

The two phones feature an identical design but have several differences in terms of specifications. The desire 20 Pro has a 6.5-inch LCD whereas the U20 5G comes with a 6.8-inch display. Both have FHD+ screen resolution and cornered punch hole cutouts for the front camera.

At the back, both devices have a quad-camera setup aligned in a vertical layout and fingerprint sensor in the center.

Internals and Storage

The Desire 20 Pro features the Snapdragon 665 SoC with a 2.0 GHz processor, 6 GB RAM, and 128 GB storage that is further expandable through a micro SD card.

On the other hand, the U20 5G is powered by the 5G rocking Snapdragon 765G that has a 2.4GHz CPU and 8GB/256GB memory configuration.

Both of them boot pure Android 10 fresh out of the box.

Cameras

There are no differences in terms of primary camera specs. The main camera is a 48MP wide-angle shooter that is accompanied by an 8MP ultrawide sensor, a 2MP macro camera, and a 2MP depth sensor. This camera can record 4K videos in 30FPS.

The front camera housed in the punch hole cutout is a 25MP sensor for the Desire 20 Pro but the U20 5G upgrades it to a 32MP unit. Both are capable of wide-angle photography.

Battery and Pricing

There is a large 5,000 mAh battery on the phones and with fast charging support on both. However, the U20 5G will charge slightly faster than the Desire 20 Pro as it has 18W fast charging instead of 15W.
