HTC has added two new smartphones to its portfolio and perfectly described the current state of the smarpthone market: extremely boring.
Smartphone   The dual-SIM (Nano) HTC U19e runs on Android 9 Pie with HTC Sense on top
HTCThe dual-SIM (Nano) HTC U19e runs on Android 9 Pie with HTC Sense on top. Unlike the ongoing smartphone design trend of including a notch, hole-punch, or pop-up selfie camera, the HTC U19e sports a more traditional look with bezels on both top and bottom. It features a 6-inch full-HD+ OLED screen (1080x2160 pixels) screen with Gorilla Glass, 18:9 aspect ratio, and HDR10 support. The smartphone is powered by octa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 710 SoC, paired with 6GB of RAM.

HTCThe new HTC phone houses a dual rear camera setup, which includes a 12-megapixel primary shooter with an f/1.8 lens and a 20-megapixel shooter with an f/2.6 lens. There is a 24-megapixel selfie shooter on the front as well with a 2-megapixel sensor for iris-recognition unlock feature. Among other specifications, the HTC U19e comes with 128GB of onboard storage with microSD card slot, rear fingerprint sensor, and 3,930mAh battery with Quick Charge 4.0 fast charging support. Additionally, you will get HTC BoomSound dual speakers, 4G LTE, NFC, Wi-Fi 802.11ac, Bluetooth 5.0, GPS, and USB Type-C.

HTCThe dual-SIM (Nano) HTC Desire 19+ runs on Android 9 Pie with HTC Sense on top. The phone sports a 6.2-inch HD+ (720x1520 pixel) screen with 19:9 aspect ratio. The phone is powered by MediaTek Helio P35 SoC, paired with up to 6GB of RAM. On the imaging front, the Desire 19+ comes with a triple rear camera setup, which houses a 13-megapixel primary camera with f/1.85 aperture, 8-megapixel wide-angle camera, and a third 5-megapixel depth camera.

HTCThere is a 16-megapixel shooter on the front for selfies. In other specifications, the HTC Desire 19+ packs 3,850mAh battery and rear fingerprint sensor. What to say? There is simply no innovation these days, everything comes down to more cameras, more memory and other things that have no real influence on your work. Everybody and his dog has a good camera, may shoot in the dark, there is video, cases in many colors, big display... Chipset are the same, as it the operating system and the apps, and there is only one word left: booooooring.
