HTC last launched a flagship smartphone in late-November, the HTC U11+. Since then, Qualcomm has launched its new flagship chipset which is already present in a handful of smartphones like the Galaxy S9 (USA and South Korea), Mi MIX 2s, Sony Xperia XZ2 and more. HTC’s upcoming flagship smartphone, the HTC U12+ is expected to have a few features not found on previous flagship HTC devices.
New leaked images of the HTC U12+ re-affirm previous rumours of a dual-camera setup on the back. HTC introduced the dual camera setup way back in 2012 with the HTC Evo 3D. Later on, the company launched the HTC M8 Eye, in 2014 with a dual camera setup albeit, a different [...]
HTC introduced the dual camera setup way back in 2012 with the HTC Evo 3D. Later on, the company launched the HTC M8 Eye, in 2014 with a dual camera setup albeit, a different implementation. However, HTC has since then shied away from using a dual-camera setup on its line of flagship smartphones even though companies like Apple, Samsung, OnePlus, LG etc have adopted the new trend of dual-camera setups. In early-2018, HTC did launch the HTC Desire 12+ with a dual-camera setup but, it was a budget smartphone with not a lot of global appeal. Now, it appears that HTC is ready to introduce a dual-camera setup on its flagship lineup with the HTC U12+, as suggested by a new leak. The HTC [...]
The HTC U12 is the upcoming flagship which is expected to launch in July 2018. A new leak from a case render has confirmed the design and aesthetics of the HTC U12. However, the leak is a bit contradictory to the previous leaks, as the company was about to skip the U12 by directly launching the HTC U12+.
The leak confirms that the smartphone has a Quad-camera solution. Two cameras on the front and two on back. However, whether it’ll have a telephoto lens or some other implementation is yet to be known. Additionally, the HTC U12 will have an 18:9 aspect ratio display without a notch. Similar to the HTC U11+, the smartphone does not have a 3.5 mm headphone jack. Keeping in [...]
HTC will launch its next flagship smartphone in July of 2018. According to rumours, the company might directly launch the HTC U12+, instead of HTC U12. Now, people at Technobufallo have rendered what it might look.
Interestingly, the HTC U12+ renders look similar to the HTC U11+, which was launched in India in February 2018. The designer elements have been inspired by the U11+ with additional attributes to make it a class 2018 flagship smartphone. From the initial impression, the device has a glass front, glass back with a metal frame. Additionally, the device has an internal reflective surface, much like the HTC U11+. Considering the glass back, the smartphone is likely to [...]
Guessing the design of a flagship smartphone is getting easy by the day. A glass unibody design, dual camera, 18:9 display are the some of the factors, that make up a flagship smartphone. Similarly, MWC 2018 has shown that a notch is also now a viable “feature”.
Here is the first glimpse of the upcoming HTC U12+, which is expected to replace the HTC U11+. However, we are yet to receive the information about the unaccounted HTC U12. In fact, the company might skip the HTC U12 entirely and directly launch the U12+, which is expected to go live in April or May.
The design of the HTC U12+ resembles most of the premium flagship smartphones of late 2017 and early [...]
The next flagship smartphone from HTC is expected to be the HTC U12. Like the Galaxy S9, the HTC U12 will be an incremental update, which is expected to retain the design from the current HTC flagship, the U11+. However, in terms of hardware, the smartphone is expected to suit up with the top of the line 2018 specifications.
Like the HTC U11+, the U12 is expected to have an 18:9 aspect ratio and thin bezels. Hence, the fingerprint sensor will be placed on the back of the smartphone. The HTC U12 is also expected to feature dual primary camera setup. However, we are still unsure about what the implementation will be.
The device is [...]
HTC, unlike a few smartphone makers, decided to skip any MWC 2018 launches. Instead, the company displayed its current flagship devices in its booth. However, that means the launch of the HTC U12, its next flagship device, is nigh. A few days ago, it was believed that the HTC U12 was leaked at a 5G convention where HTC was present. Subsequently, a new leak has revealed some important details about the device.

HTC is expected to launch the HTC U12, its next flagship Android smartphone right after MWC. While not a lot is known about the smartphone as of now, the device might have been shown off at a 5G event held by a local carrier in Taiwan. The Taiwanese tech giant has not acknowledged that the smartphone in question is indeed the HTC U12.
A famous tipster on Twitter has conceded that apparently, the device that was shown off could be the HTC U12. The images from the event do hold up with the rest of rumours of the HTC U12. According to recent leaks, the HTC U12 will have thin bezels and an 18:9 aspect ratio, similar to what the device [...]
HTC will not launch its much-anticipated flagship smartphone, the HTC u12 at MWC 2018. The Mobile World Congress is scheduled to take place from the 26th of February to March 1st in Barcelona. The company will apparently hold an event right after MWC in Barcelona and announce the HTC U12 there.
A lot of smartphone makers are expected to take the stage and announce their upcoming phones. Along with concepts, companies like Samsung, Sony, and Xiaomi will announce their smartphones. It was reported that LG and Huawei would skip MWC launches to avoid clashing with the Galaxy S9 and S9+ launch. HTC, too, seems to take the same [...]
