UPDATE (June 11th, 2020):
The upcoming HTC Desire 20 Pro has surfaced in real-life images. The leak has been shared by renowned tipster Evan Blass on his Patreon page. It shows the smartphone from the front as well as the back but in the first impression, the design looks quite boring in comparison to what other OEMs have been bringing. It has a triple rear camera setup on the top left side along with a centered fingerprint scanner. On the front, it has a punch-hole display with no curves.

HTC Taiwan's official website has been updated with a new banner image. It highlights the next HTC launch event that has been scheduled for June 16th. It further shows a glimpse of a smartphone from the front and the back. It has a punch-hole and a vertically aligned camera module. This design approach is similar to what we have seen in previous renders.

Google Play Console listings have become a source of another leak as a new smartphone has been listed way before its official launch. The particular phone in question today is HTC Desire 20 Pro which has already been talked about in previous leaks. It is likely to be the next HTC smartphone launch after a gap of at least 3 months.
The listing mentions HTC Desire 20 Pro codename to be htc_bymdugl and model number as HTC 2Q9J10000. It is listed with a Full HD+ (2340 x 1080 pixels) display with a screen density of 400 DPI. It will come with an octa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 665 processor with Qualcomm Kryo cores and Adreno 610 GPU. There is 6GB of RAM but we might also get to see more RAM variants.
The operating system version is listed to be Android 10 which is the newest one from Google. These are the only technical details that have been revealed by the website. There is also an image accompanying the listing that gives an idea of the design. The phone has an appearance that we have seen in previous HTC phones. It sports a punch-hole display that has become a commonly used design to avoid using notches.
This is pretty much what is known about the HTC Desire 20 Pro. This new phone will be a successor to last year's Desire 19 series that has two phones: HTC Desire 19s and HTC Desire 19 Plus. HTC is also rumored to announce a 5G smartphone in the month of July which is speculated to be a flagship. We will have to wait and see if this one comes out to be true.
