Some trends are better left for others to follow, and we’ll be doing our own thing. This is what high-ranking HTC operatives must have said at some point during the development of the company’s latest high-end smartphone.
So here we have the HTC U12+ with a tall 18:9 display, no headphone jack and a dual camera with 2x zoom. Wait, all these are very much current trends, so what was that first sentence all about? You see, there’s no notch on the U12+.
HTC u12+ Specification
HTC U12+ has officially been launched as the successor to the last year’s HTC U11+. The new smartphone comes with a squeezable build that reminds us of its predecessor.
The dual-SIM (optional) HTC U12+ runs Android 8.0 Oreo with HTC Sense on top and features a 6-inch QHD+ (1440×2880 pixels) Super LCD 6 display with an 18:9 aspect ratio and 537ppi of pixel density. Under the hood, there is an octa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 SoC, paired with 6GB of RAM.
The smartphone has dual camera setups on the front and back. The setup on the back has a 12-megapixel wide-angle HTC UltraPixel 4 sensor and an f/1.75 aperture lens and a 16-megapixel telephoto sensor with an f/2.6 aperture.
