According to a report by Evan Blass at VentureBeat, we have our first look at what HTC U12+ will look like and what it packs inside.
The HTC U12+ will have a Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 processor with 6GB of RAM along with a 6-inch LCD display that is “nearly bezel-less.” The device will come with a 3,420 mAh battery, 64 or 128GB of internal storage with a microSD card slot and Android Oreo.
As for the cameras, the HTC U12+ will have two rear-facing cameras, one 16-megapixel, and one 12-megapixel (with one possibly being wide-angle and/or telephoto) along with two 8-megapixel front-facing cameras.
The fingerprint sensor will be on the back of the device and the HTC U12+ will have a second generation version of Edge Sense that was first introduced on the HTC U11.
One thing to note is that HTC might be planning on just releasing the U12+ and no standard version of the U12 to be released. This might be HTC’s way of competing with the Galaxy S9+.
As for when we can expect to see the HTC U12+, Blass says in his report that HTC is planning an early May launch and subsequent release, due to a minor snag that occurred during development.
In my review of the HTC U11 last year, I called it “one of my favourite Android phones” that released in 2017.
