HTC U12+ Official Specifications And Renders Leaked
Ever since Google acquired HTC’s smartphone division, HTC has launched a few impressive devices. The HTC U11+ had an 18:9 aspect ratio and that beautiful clear design at the back. Earlier in 2018, HTC has launched the Desire 12 and Desire 12+, two budget smartphones. The company has already announced that its new flagship smartphone will be unveiled on May 23rd. Official renders and a specifications sheet of the HTC U12+ has leaked ahead of the launch, leaving nothing to one’s imagination.
Evan Blass, the ever-reliant leaker posted two images on his Twitter account. The first image was an official render of the HTC U12+ revealing the design and colour variants of the soon to be launched flagship device. He then posted an image of what looks like the official specifications sheet of the smartphone, revealing all the details there are to be known.
The HTC U12+ will be the first flagship smartphone from HTC to sport a dual-camera setup. It will feature the same Liquid Glass design that we have seen on devices like the HTC U11 and U11+. The Edge Sense feature retains its place wherein users can squeeze the frame of the smartphone and launch a particular app or action.
HTC has decided to stick to an LCD panel for the HTC U12+. The smartphone will have a 6 inch Super LCD6 display with a 2880 x 1440 px resolution.
It will run on the Snapdragon 845 chipset coupled with 6GB of RAM and 128GB of storage. The onboard storage will be expandable up to 2TB via microSD card. Powering the smartphone will be a 3500 mAh battery which will charge via a USB C port. Sadly, that is the only port on the device as the headphone jack is missing. Out of the box, the HTC U12+ will run Android 8 Oreo with HTC’s SenseUI on top.
The dual-camera on the back consists of a 12MP wide-angle lens with an f/1.75 aperture while the secondary 16MP camera is equipped with a telephoto lens and an f/2.6 aperture. Like the iPhone X, Galaxy S9, and the OnePlus 6, the HTC U12+ will also record 4K videos at 60fps. This is a great feature, especially for content creators who like shooting with their smartphones. To the front is an 8MP camera with an f/2.0 aperture.
The HTC U12+ has flagship-grade specifications and a few interesting features. The official launch is set for May 23rd, although, don’t expect it to hit the Indian shores anytime soon.
