The flagship HTC U12 Plus will be radically different from its predecessor
The insiders claim that the Taiwanese manufacturer will release only U12 Plus, while the usual U12 may not enter the market. Judging by the new image, the device will differ markedly from its predecessor.
HTC U12 Plus will get a 6-inch LCD-display with a resolution of WQHD +, an aspect ratio of 18: 9 and thin borders on the top and bottom. At the back is a glass cover with bent edges around it, and on it there is a horizontal block for a double camera with 16 and 12-megapixel sensors, an LED flash, and a fingerprint scanner.
This will be the first flagship HTC with a dual camera since the days of One M8, released in 2014. In addition, the U12 Plus will be equipped with a dual 8-megapixel front camera.
Overall, the phone will be made of two materials. The glass front and back will be sandwiched between an aluminum frame, and even beneath the rear panel metal is present. But it does look like HTC’s gone with a sharper look than last year’s U11.
The 2017 flagship was sold in three colors, one of which was an incredible Solar Red. HTC could bring that back for the U12+ in addition to black and white. Regardless of the color selected, the front will be black.
And the company may return to embracing on-screen navigation buttons. That’s because the top and bottom bezels are too thin to compensate for a display with an 18:9 aspect ratio.
Flip over the U12+, and you’re going to discover a dual-camera setup. The U11 didn’t have one but other mobile devices from the companies have, so HTC is returning to familiar territory.
Beneath the horizontally-aligned lenses is a cutout for a two-tone LED flash. Then there’s a fingerprint scanner and HTC’s logo stamped closer to the center.
As reported, HTC U12 Plus will receive an eight-core Snapdragon 845 processor, 6 GB of RAM, a 64 or 128 GB drive with expandability and a battery capacity of 3930 mAh. It will also support the second-generation Edge Sense technology, which allows you to compress your smartphone for quick access to features and applications.
