Red Magic 5G Lite, OPPO A52, OPPO A72, HTC Desire 20 Pro, and HTC U20 5G forums are open
Earlier this month, the smartphone industry saw some interesting events, including a revival moment for HTC. The forsaken smartphone brand launched two new smartphones including one 5G device powered by Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 765G. Meanwhile, Nubia also launched a Lite variant of its Red Magic 5G gaming smartphone with a 120Hz AMOLED display and the Snapdragon 765G. These phones look pretty interesting just based on the spec sheets, which is why we’re adding dedicated XDA Forums for the Nubia Red Magic 5G Lite, HTC U20 5G, and the HTC Desire 20 Pro. Along with these, we’re also opening up forums for two mid-range OPPO smartphones – the OPPO A52 and OPPO A72 – that were recently launched in Europe.
Red Magic 5G Lite
The Red Magic 5G Lite from Nubia is a lower-powered variant of the Red Magic 5G. The Snapdragon 765G-powered Lite variant is not only toned down in terms of specs but also lacks the physical cooling fan that is characteristic of the Red Magic series. However, it comes with a bigger 5,100mAh battery and borrows the capacitive shoulder buttons from its more powerful sibling.
HTC U20 5G and Desire 20 Pro
While the HTC U20 5G has a Snapdragon 765G chipset, the HTC Desire 20 Pro is a mid-ranger with the Qualcomm Snapdragon 665. The HTC U20 5G has a massive 6.8-inch display while the HTC Desire 20 Pro features a smaller 6.5″ display. While both phones are currently limited to Taiwan, they could launch globally. We expect the Desire 20 Pro to launch in other markets, but we don’t know when or if the U20 5G will launch outside of Taiwan.
OPPO A52 and A72
The OPPO A52 and A72 are pretty identical in terms of specifications. Both of them are running on Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 665 SoC, 4GB of RAM, and feature 6.5-inch Full HD+ displays. The differences lie in terms of the internal storage – the OPPO A52 comes with 64GB while A72 packs in a 128GB storage chip. Another difference is that the OPPO A72 has a 48MP primary camera while the A52 has a 12MP camera. The prices for these devices are unknown so far but we expect to learn that soon.
