The U12+ is almost here, and information surrounding the release of HTC’s upcoming flagship may have leaked online.
HTC will begin selling the U12+ around the world early next month at a price that’s in-line with other competing flagships, according to ePrice. But the Taiwanese company won’t go into the territory Apple and Samsung dabbled in last year with the iPhone X and Galaxy Note 8. The U12+ should, based on this leak, come in at around $730.
From previous leaks, we’ve learned the 2018 flagship will have a modern design with 18:9 aspect ratio for the display as well as cutting-edge specifications. HTC, though, seriously needs to stand out rather than simply matching its competitors on paper.
You should expect the U12+ to ship with a 6-inch WQHD+ LCD display, Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 845, 6GB of RAM, up to 128GB of storage, 16MP and 12MP rear cameras, two 8MP front cameras, a 3420mAh battery, and Android 8.0 Oreo.
The phone should be made of glass with an aluminum frame, and it’s still a little unclear if the U12 is canceled or revived with a limited roll-out. Later this month, we’ll know exactly what HTC is doing.
Following its announcement on May 23, the U12+ should go on sale June 1 in most markets. HTC already has its launch scheduled, though there won’t be any formal presentation. The U12+ is going to swiftly appear on HTC’s website and social media accounts with pre-orders being taken immediately.
