HTC did not present any smartphone at the last MWC. His next flagship will be a little wait. For some time, there is the talk of an HTC U12 that would logically follow the U11 and whose code name is “Imagine”. But now Evan Blass – better known as evleaks on Twitter – has revealed information about an HTC U12 +.
On Twitter, he released a first image of the smartphone, but the quality is not optimal. He also wrote an article on VentureBeat to explain everything he knew about the product, citing an anonymous source well informed about HTC’s plans.
We learn that the HTC U12 could never see the light of day. The Taiwanese manufacturer apparently focuses solely on the U12 + to compete with the Samsung Galaxy S9 +. This choice of name would, therefore, be intended to make the user understand that he is dealing with an ultra-premium device.
To summarize, it was thought until now that the smartphone “Imagine” corresponded to the HTC U12, but in reality, it would rather be the HTC U12 +. The features that have leaked recently do not change that.
The U12 + would, therefore, be entitled to the following technical detail:
It is true that the quality of the images is not too good, but the design of the HTC U12 + does not promise much. We find a glass-finished back, a double camera in an “inspired” position in LG’s G range, and a fingerprint reader underneath it. On the front, reigns a 6-inch screen with QHD resolution, and IPS technology.
The front camera is 8 megapixels, and the back will have two sensors, 12 and 16 megapixels. The processor will be Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 845, it will have 6 GB of RAM and configurations of 64 or 128 GB of internal memory. The 34200mAh battery experiences a marked reduction compared to the 4000mAh of the U11 +. Obviously, will come with Android Oreo, fast loading, NFC, and everything that is asked to a high-end, but we continue without surprises, news or differential factors.
As for the price of HTC U12 +, little or nothing is still known but should be between $862.01 and $985.15, as practically all the high range of this year. Again, HTC is in a fierce market, with a product that, except surprise, will not be able to overcome its rivals, and with an uncertain future that every day we see more complicated to move forward.
