HTC‘s 2018 flagship smartphone is now official!

HTC U12+

Dubbed as HTC U12+, the smartphone comes with all the latest specifications that you expect from this year’s flagship device (IP68 Certification as well). This new device features a 6” Super LCD6 display which supports HDR10 and DCI-P3. It’s a tall 18:9 screen with 1,440 x 2,280 pixel resolution (537ppi).

Like the previous iteration, this one also comes with a pressure sensitive sensors along the sides of the phone allowing you to “squeeze” the handset in order to activate a certain action – enables Edge Sense squeeze gestures.

Under the hood – as expected – there resides a Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 64 bit octa-core processor which has a clock speed of up to 2.8GHz and Adreno 630 graphics processor. The chipset is coupled with 6GB of RAM and 64GB / 128GB storage option to choose from.

If we recall it’s the first time since the One (M8) that the company has come with a dual camera setup. On the rear side, there’s the dual camera setup 12MP (f/1.8, 1.4µm, Dual Pixel PDAF) + 16 MP (f/2.6, 1.0µm) sensor with phase detection & laser autofocus, OIS, gyro-EIS, 2x optical zoom, and dual-LED dual-tone flash.

And on the front side, there’s the dual 8 MP (f/2.0, 1.12µm) selfie camera sensor with 1080p, HDR, panorama support. The video capabilities have also been enhanced, as now you’d be able to record a video up to 2160p@60fps and 1080p@30/60/240fps.

The phone will come running Android Oreo v8.0 operating system out of the box and the company has confirmed that they will be updating it to Android P.

As you can see in the depicted pictures the device has a glass back but sadly the no support for wireless charging. And in comparison to the previous iteration the battery size of this one is smaller  U11+ – 3,500 mAh vs 3,930 mAh for the outgoing model.
And like U11+, this new model has no headphone jack and boasts stereo speakers and high-res audio over its USB-C port (with noise-canceling in-ear headphones in the box).
