HTC U12, U12+ Leaks, Specifications Listed –
Smartphone maker HTC has leaked details of upcoming HTC U12+. The smartphone has been in the headlines for the past few weeks. We has posted news about the same on March 17, 2018. Its design renders and case images already surfaced to highlight a dual rear camera setup and a thin-bezel, 18:9 display. And now, few closer shots of the HTC U12+ has emerged online that a detailed view of the upcoming HTC flagship. Some camera samples of the next HTC smartphone have also been leaked to showcase its camera features. There are speculations that the HTC U12+ will be launched in Taiwan sometime later this month. However, the Taiwanese company hasn’t announced any concrete launch schedule.
Several leaks like images of the HTC U12+, courtesy HTC Taiwan News Facebook page, give a hands-on look at the unannounced smartphone. The images show that the HTC U12+ has a glossy back that reminds us the last year launched HTC U11+. Also, there is apparently a golden finish, while the front of the smartphone is in Black colour. The back of the handset shows us the dual rear camera setup that is accompanied by a dual-LED flash. Below the camera setup, there is seemingly a fingerprint sensor. On the front, the smartphone appears to have a dual selfie camera and the bottom of the phone has a USB Type-C port. The side of the smartphone has three individual buttons that are likely to be used for power on/ off and controlling the volume.
The HTC U12+ is expected to have two different lenses on the dual rear camera setup with f/1.8 and f/2.6 aperture sizes. The smartphone might also have a variable aperture option on a single lens – similar to the Samsung Galaxy S9. Each of the camera samples comes in a 12-megapixel resolution. This suggests that the rear camera setup will come two 12-megapixel image sensors. In contrast, some of the previous reports claimed that the dual rear camera setup of the HTC U12+ will come with a 16-megapixel primary sensor and a 12-megapixel secondary sensor. The smartphone is also rumoured to come with two 8-megapixel sensors on the front. On the part of other specifications, the HTC U12+ is reported to have a 5.99-inch LCD panel with a QHD+ resolution, Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 SoC, 6GB RAM, 64GB/ 128GB onboard storage, and a 3420 mAh battery.
The online listing reportedly showed that the HTC U12 will run Android Oreo and feature a 6-inch Super WQHD LCD panel along with a “Frame less Display” design. It is unclear whether the smartphone is powered by the top-notch Snapdragon 845 SoC as the listing shows LTE Cat.12 support not the Cat.18 and Cat.13 for downloads and uploads. Having said that, the listing might just be limited to the Verizon version of the handset. At the time of filing this story, we weren’t able to separately verify the reported specifications as Verizon deleted the details from the listing.
