HTC U12+ coming this summer; design and specifications leaked
Taiwanese phone manufacturer HTC is reportedly preparing to announce its next flagship, the HTC U12+, which has been codenamed as HTC Imagine by the company. Courtesy design renders and specification leaks, we now know that HTC is laying the groundwork for U12+ which, as some reports suggest, may get launched in early May. Here's our roundup on the device.
According to reports, U12+ is expected to sport a 5.99-inch QHD+ LCD display with a near-bezel-less design as seen on the HTC U11 EYEs. The U12+ will feature a rear dual-camera setup along with a flash and fingerprint sensor placed below the camera setup. Also, earlier reports have said the smartphone would come with IP 68 water and dust resistance rating.
Render designs and some leaks confirm a rear dual-camera setup on the HTC's 2018 flagship, the U12+. In terms of specifications for the setup, the smartphone is expected to bear a 16-megapixel primary sensor and a 12-megapixel secondary sensor along with an LED flash. As for the front camera, the U12+ may get an 8-megapixel camera with support for Face Unlock technology.
Reports suggest the U12+ will feature a Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 SoC coupled with 6GB of RAM, 64GB/ 128GB inbuilt storage. The smartphone is also expected to pack a 3,420mAh battery while running Android Oreo. It will feature second generation of HTC's Edge Sense functionality which included the much- talked about 'squeeze' function that we saw on the HTC U11 launched last year.
HTC's Edge Sense essentially lets you perform phone/app functions by squeezing the sides of the phone - say you can open camera or zoom in and out of photos or play/pause music by squeezing. You can set up squeeze actions app-wise, provided it supports squeeze.
