Both phones have HTC Sense Companion, an AI feature reminding you about upcoming events, it will remind you to charge your phone if it detects a busy day ahead so your phone does not die mid-meeting. The companion makes sure your phone is running at optimum speed and will suggest clearing junk files and apps for free space.
It will be available in Europe around May with the Desire 12 to be priced around €190. No word on when it will hit Aussie shores but expect sometime after then.
