HTC is expected to soon launch the successor of its HTC U11, which is likely to be named HTC U12. The device was apparently shown off at a 5G industry event about a month ago.
Now, we have phone’s specifications, thanks to the leak by LlabTooFeR, a ROM developer who has a good track record for leaking HTC-related things. The specifications of the phone leaked are in line with the previous leak.
According to the leak, the phone will feature a 5.99-inch QHD+ display with an aspect ratio of 18:9 to offer the trendy full-screen display. Under the hood, the device will be powered by Qualcomm‘s flagship chipset, Snapdragon 845, which will be powering most of the flagship phones this year.
The leak also suggests that the HTC U12 will pack 6GB RAM and a whopping 256GB of internal storage. Further, the phone is said to feature a dual camera setup on the back comprising one 12-megapixel sensor and one 16-megapixel Sony IMX3xx unit. There’ll be an 8-megapixel front-facing camera for taking selfies and video calling.
The phone will be running on Android 8.0 Oreo operating system out-of-the-box with the company’s custom interface HTC Sense 10 on top, along with Edge Sense 2.0 and HTC Face Unlock. The phone, which is said to have IP68 protection, will be powered by a 3,420mAh battery. Previous leak had revealed that the phone will have Qualcomm’s Quick Charge 3.0 fast charging support.
Earlier, the phone was rumored to launch at Mobile World Congress 2018. But now, it is expected to be announced next month, i.e. April 2018. However, there is no such confirmation from the company yet.
The previous leak had revealed that the phone could be priced at $880, which is a bit less than the launch price of the HTC U11+, which was priced at around $929. It will be interesting to see how this upcoming phone from HTC competes against others.
