HTC announced a June 11 event last week, and the company has indeed revealed a new smartphone today. Today, they announced the HTC U19e, a mid-range phone with decent specs that likely won't show up on United States soil any time soon. It has Quick Charge 4.0 support, a rear fingerprint reader, and a semi-see-through backside. On the front, you'll find a 24MP f/2.0 aperture lens and, surprisingly, a 2MP iris scanner for secure facial recognition. This marks a move from a series-based naming system (U11 U12) to a (presumably) year-based one, with the number 19 for devices launched in 2019 - because obviously, product nomenclature is HTC's biggest problem right now.

In terms of the imaging capabilities, the 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. It runs on Android9.0 Pie out of the box with HTC Sense UI laid on top.

The phone measures 156.5x75.9x8mm and weighs 180 grams. Additionally, you will get HTC BoomSound dual speakers, 4G LTE, NFC, Wi-Fi 802.11ac, Bluetooth 5.0, GPS, and USB Type-C.

The visible internals are most likely fake like the transparent editions of Xiaomi phones.
