Mr. Blass shared the image of the device via its Patreon account. This is not your regular render, or a real-life image, but a sketch, a detailed one. Mr. Blass also confirmed that the codename of this smartphone is ‘Bayamo’.
The Desire 20 Pro is looking to become HTC’s first smartphone with display camera hole
The phone, as you can see, will include a display camera hole in the top-left corner. If this phone comes to life soon, it will become the very first device with a display camera home from HTC.
Based on this sketch, it will include a flat display, and basically non-existing bezels. The power / lock, volume up, and volume down keys will be placed on the right-hand side of the device.
The back side of the phone will be a bit curved towards the sides. The phone’s camera module on the back will be placed in the top-left corner. Four cameras will be a part of that camera module, and they will be vertically-aligned.
As you can see, the bottom camera module will be the smallest. We’re guessing this is a depth sensor of some kind. A dual-LED flash will be placed next to the camera module, on its right side.
A capacitive fingerprint scanner will also be a part of the package, and it will be placed on the back. Right below that fingerprint scanner, you’ll notice the company’s branding.
The Snapdragon 660 will allegedly fuel this smartphone
Now, we don’t have a lot of information regarding this phone’s specifications. Some rumors did suggest that the phone will be fueled by the Snapdragon 660 SoC, however. That is Qualcomm’s mid-range 64-bit octa-core processor.
That chip is definitely not the latest and greatest Qualcomm has to offer, not even in the mid-range sector. We would have expected at least a Snapdragon 700 series chip to be included.
The phone will allegedly include 6GB of RAM. It seems like the company is aiming for a really competitive price tag on this smartphone, which is why it opted to use older components.
We’re only guessing at this point, though. None of these specs have been confirmed just yet. We also don’t know when exactly will this smartphone become official.
It is unclear whether the current health crisis managed to postpone its launch or not. Considering Evan Blass shared its sketch, however, we’re expecting it to launch in the near future.
