HTC took to Twitter in the early hours of today to announce that it has an event on August 30. The tweet includes a caption that reads “Beauty and power meet on August 30th 2018” and is accompanied by a poster which teases the product belongs to the U-series.
Based on previous rumors, the phone we think HTC may unveil on that day is the HTC U12 Life, a successor to the mid-range U11 Life from last year. The phone is expected to come with Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 636, a 6-inch display with an 18:9 aspect ratio and a 1080 x 2160 resolution. It will also have 4GB of RAM and 64GB of storage.
For optics, the HTC U12 Life will have 12MP + 5MP dual rear cameras and a single 13MP front-facing camera with its own selfie flash. The new 18:9 aspect ratio will mean the fingerprint scanner will find a new home and the back of the phone is the most likely position.

A leaker known for posting genuine HTC leaks has also revealed that the HTC U12 Life will be manufactured by an ODM and not HTC itself.
