We now know that the HTC U12 + will be officially announced on May 23 and thanks to a new leak, we have a bit more to come about the upcoming flagship. According to Roland Quandt of Winfuture.de, the HTC U12 + will be offered in four different color variants, including a variant with a partially translucent rear.
The HTC U11+ introduced in November last year is HTC’s first mobile phone with a translucent body. You can see the internal components of the body on the back, which is quite cool.
The generally well-informed telecom insider claims on Twitter that the device appears in the colors black, ‘Red Rose’ and violet. Quandt says that the HTC U12 + will have 64GB of storage and a 6-inch screen. HTC will also offer a variant of the smartphone with support for two SIM cards. Unknown is what the phone is going to cost, but we do not seem to expect a low price tag. We think that HTC opts for prices that are comparable to the high-end models of Samsung and LG, so the price is probably around $950.
Based on previous rumors, we can state that the HTC U12 + is equipped with a 6-inch LCD screen. The screen has a resolution of 2880 x 1440 pixels and an aspect ratio of 18: 9. HTC has opted for a bezel above the screen instead of a notch. Under the hood, we find the Snapdragon 845-soc from Qualcomm in combination with 4GB RAM and 64GB storage. There will also be a variant on the market with 6GB RAM and 128GB storage, but it is not expected in Europe. The capacity of the battery is 3500mAh. Furthermore, we talk about support for wireless charging and fast charging via Qualcomm’s Quick Charge 4+ technology.
The HTC U12 + has a total of four cameras. Selfies are shot with the dual 8MP cameras. Both lenses have optical image stabilization. The camera module on the back consists of a 12MP camera with an f / 1.5 lens, UltraPixel 4 technology, and UltraSpeed AF. The second sensor would have a 16MP resolution. Optical image stabilization is also present here for both lenses.
The frame of the housing is made of metal with a front and back of the glass. Users can still perform certain functions by squeezing the housing. A 3.5mm headphone jack is not present, although there will undoubtedly be a 3.5mm-to-USB type -C adapter. The Sense interface is based on Android Oreo and that means that the HTC U12 + will support Project Treble from day 1, enabling the phone to be updated faster in theory to new versions of Android.
