A few days ago, it was reported that the HTC U12+ will be the only flagship from HTC this year. It was also revealed that a mid-range version called the HTC U12 Life will also be launched.
Full specification details of the U12+ have already been leaked online but there has been no info on the U12 Life until today. Popular leaker @evleaks has revealed a key detail about the phone. While this is not a major spec info, it is still very important as it can influence your decision to purchase the U12 Life.
If you thought that HTC was sidestepping the notch trend…think again. Apparently midrange U12 Life gets its notch on.

According to Evan Blass, the HTC U12 Life will have a notch in its display. True, notched displays is the trend this year but we never expected HTC to be one to join the bandwagon. Fellow Taiwanese company, ASUS shamelessly joined the trend with the new Zenfone 5 and Zenfone 5z announced last month at MWC.

It is not known what the HTC U12 Life’s notch will look like. Most manufacturers have copied that of the iPhone X with varying widths but we have seen a few copy the circular design of the Essential PH-1. So there is a chance HTC may go with the latter’s design.
