The HTC U12+ smartphone is screen with a 6-inch 18:9 display and slimmed-down bezels.The HTC U12+ reportedly carries many of the design hallmarks of the U11+,  the U12+ appears to build upon that phone’s most noteworthy asset.

The U12+ will reportedly repeat the liquid glass enclosure we loved so much on HTC’s previous-generation range-topper. Those aren’t the only pair on the device either, as there may be two more cameras above the display on the phone’s front to spice up your selfies.

According to Blass’ report in VentureBeat, the HTC U12+’s display will features 2560 x 1440.  resolution, but  with LCD technology. This could put HTC’s next flagship at a disadvantage compared to the growing number of smartphones making use of OLED panels, sporting richer colors and perfect blacks. Then again, LCD screens are typically brighter than their OLED counterparts, and much cheaper to produce which could make the HTC U12+ hit a lower price.


HTC U12+ sport the same Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 chipset we’ll see in so many high-end Android phones later in the year. Right now that processor is exclusive to the Samsung Galaxy S9 , the same chip will soon reach the Sony Xperia XZ2 , Asus ZenFone 5Z and the OnePlus 6 .


VentureBeat report stated HTC would pair that powerful silicon with 6GB of RAM. But then a more recent leak, based on a spec sheet obtained by Android Headlines out of China, suggested we could actually see as much as 8GB of RAM in the next-gen HTC flagship. That could make it one of the most powerful smartphones of the year.

HTC U12+ offer 128GB storage space, with a MicroSD slot for expandability. Don’t expect a headphone jack, HTC’s have joined the league of No 3.5mm jack and has fully adopted USB-C for its BoomSound audio enhancements. The Android Headlines report lists a technology called “Edge Sense 2,” though it’s unclear at this time how it improves upon the previous iteration.


HTC’S has finally looks to jump back on the dual-lens band wagon with the HTC U12+. 

The HTC U12+ will combine 12-megapixel sensor and 16-megapixel sensors at the back while doubling up on 8-megapixel units at the front. The two-camera  setup is reminiscent of the recently-released HTC U11 EYEs.


The HTC U12+ may be priced the same as the HTC U11+, so the HTC U12+ will cost about $799. About ₦288,000 naira in Naira Currency
