Just a few days before the launch of HTC’s next flagship device, HTC U12 Plus, all the specifications of the smartphone along with its pictures have been leaked. Venture Beat’s Evan Blass has tweeted a picture of the upcoming smartphone along with its entire spec sheet.
Although it has not been confirmed by the company that it is launching the HTC U12 Plus smartphone on its May 23 event, various media reports suggest so. But the timing of Evan Blass leaking HTC U12 Plus’ renders and specs could possibly mean the company is indeed taking wraps off its upcoming flagship device next week.
As suggested by the images of the smartphone, HTC U12 Plus is likely to sport the translucent colour that we earlier saw in HTC U11. It has been reported that HTC U12 Plus will come in four colour variants — Black, Red Rose, Violet, and Translucent.
Although one can’t be sure of the colours of the device on seeing these renders, what is very evident is a dual rear camera setup as well as dual cameras on the front panel. And it’s very refreshing to see a flagship that comes without the notch on its display.
According to the leaked spec sheet, HTC U12 Plus will feature a 6-inch Quad HD+ Super LCD 6 display with an 18:9 aspect ratio and Corning Gorilla Glass protection. The device will be powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 processor paired with 6GB RAM and will be available in two storage variants – 64GB and 128GB. For more storage, users would have the option of installing microSD cards of up to 2TB. The leaked spec sheet suggests that the device runs Android 8.0 Oreo with HTC Sense 2 and will get an upgrade for Android P.
For imaging duties, HTC U12 Plus will sport 12MP wide angle camera and 16MP telephoto camera at the back. For selfies and video calls, there are dual front facing cameras that support AR stickers and Face Unlock. The rear cameras of the device are said to record 4K videos at 60fps – a feature that OnePlus was touting for its OnePlus 6 smartphone.
The smartphone will also come with always-on listening support for Google Assistant and Amazon Alexa and will be backed by a 3,500mAh battery. If the HTC U12 Plus is actually being launched on May 23, there’s not much left for the company to announce apart from the pricing and availability details of the phone.
