HTC U12 Plus may be launched on May 23

HTC U12 Plus may be launched on May 23

Although the image teased by HTC does not reveal much about the purported new smartphone, from what we can tell, the new device would feature four camera sensors, a fingerprint sensor and a microSD slot. Rumor has it the device will be the U12+ and not U12 and that it may only be the next-gen premium flagship from the brand. Today, HTC has finally given us a date when we'll see that new device - May 23rd. This could mean that the standard HTC U12 houses a single front-facing camera, with the dual front-facing reserved for its higher-end handset. The device will be a successor the U11+ which was launched past year. The device will sport top of the line hardware to give a tough rivalry to the Galaxy S9-series and the OnePlus 6. It is reported to have a 5.99-inch LCD panel with a QHD+ resolution, Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 SoC, 6GB RAM, 64GB/ 128GB inbuilt storage, and a 3420mAh battery. A render of the phone was recently released by serial smartphone leaker Evan Blass, and does seem to suggest that the HTC U12 Launch will bring a phone with some upgraded specifications. The phone is said to pack two cameras of 16MP and 12MP at the back with the secondary sensor acting as a telephoto lens. The front will also offer dual cameras with 8MP+8MP modules and realtime bokeh effects. Specs were revealed and we learned it may feature a matte white metal and glass body.

That could be a key way the company looks to make its phone stand out in the crowded Android market.
