By now most of us are aware of the fact that when a company announces a new phone people are always ready to get their hands on the tiniest piece of information that will reveal anything about the phone. And we are not talking about just the cameras, the hardware or the size of the phone. People want to know everything, when it will be released, how many models are available, when did the production line start and where will the phone become available. Anything that you can think about and more when it comes to a phone, people want to find out.
And with HTC U12+ we are sorry to say that the Taiwanese company was anything but careful when it came to preserving the details about the phone. Leaks have been appearing all over the place, from renders to official specs and the list goes on. There is nothing left to the imagination, by now we know almost everything about the phone except when it is going to be released. But we do not have to wait for much more for that.
However, have you ever heard of a mobile company to pull a leak on its own? Well, if you haven’t then we have to tell you that HTC did that. It accidentally revealed leaked information coupled with a few images of HTC U12+. The page is down, but the internet managed to copy all of the details that were on there and today we will be talking all about what we have found.
Tomorrow the Taiwanese company has an event scheduled in the Eastern Time Zone, another one right after that is set to take place in San Francisco. This event will probably focus on the release date for HTC U12+, but after the company accidentally leaked all the possible details, these events seem more like a formality than anything else.
All about HTC U12+
Those that managed to catch the small slip on the company’s official website saw everything.
First of all, the phone is going to come in three different colors. The names of these color options are “Ceramic Black,” “Perspective Blue” and “Flame Red.” So this means that you will have three options to choose from when you decide to make your choice. The bolder one is the red version in our opinion. We are interested to see how many people will choose that one.
The display is a 6-inch 2880 x 1440 SuperLCD6 one. There is not much else to mention here apart from the fact that this screen is undoubtedly worthy of a high-end smartphone since its quality is easy to distinguish.
HTC u12+ has not disappointed us thus far, and it looks like it will not disappoint us with what it is packing under the hood either. The phone is going to be powered by the Snapdragon 845 processor. This is the best processor on the market at this moment, and it will be a while before a new one comes out to place it down at second best. So expect the phone not to fail when it comes to its performance and the fact that it will probably go running very smoothly.
Internal Storage, RAM, and OS
From what we have seen HTC release on their official website, the phone is set to come with 6GB of RAM and 128GB of internal storage. If that is still not enough for you, there is also a microSD card slot available if you want to add more space to your phone. The phone is going to come with Android 8.0 Oreo out of the box. Could we see HTC U12+ be in line for the Android P upgrade shortly? Maybe, but we cannot say for sure right now.
The phone is going to come with two rear-facing cameras and to front-facing cameras as well. That means that users will have all the tools that they need to snap the perfect picture at their disposal with all of this technology packed into one smartphone.
The battery is a capacity of 3,500mAh. This makes HTC give Samsung’s S9 a run for their money since we are sure that with this battery size the phone will be able to last one whole day with just one charge while being constantly used by its user.
The price on the website was set to 5,888 CNY. Now, if you do not know how much that is, then we are here to help. We decided to convert this sum into dollars, and it came up to roughly 925 dollars. Yes, this is quite pricey, but we believe that the price is justified. However, there was a rumor going around that HTC was planning to have competitive prices with Rival Samsung, but from this price, we can’t see much of a difference.
And we also have to keep in mind that phones that are usually released in China are cheaper there than the same variant available in another country. So we may see the price go up to one thousand dollars, but that is still undecided as of yet.
Audio and IP68
The smartphone is also said to come with BoomSound, ensuring that the sounds emitted by it will be clear and perfect. The phone will also come with IP68 water and dust resistance. It will take some effort to truly make a dent in this phone.
