HTC Desire 20 Pro available for pre-order in EU for €279

The HTC Desire 20 Pro was announced in June with the Qualcomm Snapdragon 665 SoC and a quad rear camera setup. The Taiwanese OEM initially launched the phone only in their domestic market, but they also left a subtle hint for a more wide scale release across the globe. And now, months after the official announcements, the HTC Desire 20 Pro is finally available for pre-order in Europe.
