HTC is in a very difficult spot right now, with almost all of its smartphone designers and engineers migrating to Google Inc hardware division thanks to a deal the Search Giant shook hands with HTC not too long ago, and some of the execs quitting the company recently.
HTC might close up shop in 2018, if its upcoming HTC U and Desire series phones do not impress and determine fans to purchase their handsets.
HTC U12+ smartphone is the flagship we are waiting from HTC in 2018
HTC is rumoured for a while now to launch the U12 flagship model, but a more recent news from pretty reliable sources (Evan Blass aka @evleaks) claim that HTC will launch its 2018 flagship smartphone as the HTC U12+ (Plus), thus skipping HTC U12 name.
HTC U12+ is said to feature a 6-inch LCD WQHD display with 18:9 aspect ratio, Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 845 CPU, 6GB of RAM, 64 / 128 GB of internal storage + micro SD card slot, a 3,420 mAh battery and run Android Oreo with HTC’s latest Sense UI on top of it.
Made of two glass panels sandwiched together by a metal frame with pressure sensors on both edges (right and left hand side), the U12 Plus will feature Edge Sense technology. At the back sits a dual camera (both 16MP + 12MP sensors aligned horizontally), an LED Flash, and right under it a fingerprint sensor. At the front there is a dual selfies camera (8MP + 8MP sensors) that might also feature Face Unlock technology since its similar to what we’ve seen on HTC U11 Eyes.
HTC U12+ (see photo leaked at the top) is said to debut in early May.
