From past few years, HTC has not been able to keep up with its competitors in the smartphone world, the Taiwanese company is all set to change that with the rumored HTC U12 plus smartphone. The HTC’s 2018 flagship is codenamed Imagine, which according to a person familiar with the company’s plan is the HTC U12+.
The successor to the last year HTC U11 and U11+series of smartphones, HTC U12+ might only come with the “plus” variant and ditch the normal U12. The HTC U12 sports a 6-inch WQHD+ 18:9 aspect ratio LCD display with almost no side bezels and thinner top and bottom bezels.
The top bezel houses a dual front-facing camera setup with two 8-megapixel sensors just like on the recently launched HTC U11 EYEs. The HTC’s 2018 flagship will be powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 processor coupled with 6GB of RAM and up to 128GB of internal storage on the top-end variant.
The U12+ will also come with expandable storage and will house a 3420mAh battery. There is a dual camera setup at the back two with a 16-megapixel primary sensor and a 12-megapixel secondary sensor. The dual camera setup is placed just above the led flash and a rear placed fingerprint scanner.
The smartphone is also expected to come with the popular face unlock feature via the front-facing camera. HTC’s Edge sense 2nd Generation will also be present in the smartphone which allows you to squeeze the smartphone to perform certain operations like launching an app, setting the phone to silent etc.
According to a report by VentureBeat, the development of HTC U12+ was said to have encountered a minor snag which has pushed the launch date back several weeks. It is expected to launch sometime in early May 2018. Let’s see if this new smartphone will help HTC to regain its spot in the competitive smartphone world.
