Even though HTC had launched two U-series flagship phones namely HTC U11 and U11+ phones in 2017, recent reports that the company would be only launching the U12+ this year. Fresh information coming from Taiwan claims that the country will be receiving the HTC Desire 12, Desire 12+ and U12+ in the coming month. Citing information received through its source, Taiwan’s ePrice has revealed that the HTC U12+ may hit the Taiwanese market by the end of next month or in the beginning of June.
The HTC U12+ that will be fueled by Snapdragon 845 is expected to arrive in 64 GB and 128 GB storage models. Like the U11+, it will be featuring a 6-inch display that may carry support for 18:9 aspect ratio. It is also rumored to arrive with dual rear cameras and dual front cameras.
The HTC U11 was released in the market on May 20 with a price tag of NT$ 24,900 in Taiwan. However, its cost was lowered to NT$ 21,900 (~$744) to celebrate the 20th anniversary of the company. The 128 GB model of the HTC U11+ that was launched later in 2017 had arrived in the home market for NT$ 21,900.
Fresh information reveals that the U12+ will be available for buying by the end of the next month or early June. The pricing for the 64 GB model is not known, but the 128 GB model is expected to land in Taiwan with a price tag of NT$ 24,900 ($846). Since the smartphone is now pegged to hit the market by the end of coming month, the company may unveil it in the second or third week of May.
Samsung’s Galaxy S9 series and Sony Xperia XZ2 have been available in the market since quite some time and the sales of the Huawei P20 and P20 Pro will start selling in Taiwan from May 1. Also, Taiwan’s ASUS ZenFone 5Z phone that is powered by Snapdragon 845 is a good competitor for the HTC U12+. Hence, it seems that if the U12+ arrives in the market at May end or early June, it may not be able to attract the market.
