It comes only in 3GB of RAM + 32GB of internal storage option which you can further expand up to 2TB via a microSD card.

HTC Desire 12+ specifications
The HTC Desire 12 ramps things up a bit in virtually all areas. First, it gets a larger 6 inch IPS LCD display with a 1440 x 720 px resolution which translates to an 18:9 aspect ratio.
