HTC U12 Plus laid bare by huge leak

U12 Plus from HTC This is the HTC U12+
Troy Mann | 16 March, 2018, 11:16

The phone will be backed by 3420mAh battery. With last year's U11 being exclusively an online purchase at a somewhat steep price, we saw hardly any adoption, followed by months of sad news coming out of HTC.

It'll also have a pair of 8-megapixel selfie cameras, Blass says, which will mirror the functionality of the HTC U11 EYEs release.

As reported by Venture Beat, the U12 Plus might not launch before May.

FDA planning to lower nicotine in cigarettes
The Food and Drug Administration said Thursday it wants to sharply reduce the amount of nicotine in cigarettes . Although the overall rate of Americans who smoke is declining, public health gains are not evenly spread.


Based on what we have come across before, the HTC U12+ is expected to feature a 6-inch LCD display with WQHD+ resolution, and Qualcomm's latest Snapdragon 845 SoC under the hood. However, we expect more details to emerge in the following days. The recent rumors also suggest the company to soon launch the HTC Desire 12 and Desire 12 Plus smartphones with 18:9 displays. We believed it's taking HTC some time in launching a new flagship since the mobile manufacturing business is now part of Google. It is also likely to come with 6GB of RAM, and 256GB internal storage. There will be dual rear cams (16MP + 12MP), LED flash, and a fingerprint scanner at the back. Last year was a bad year for HTC, so we'll see what 2018 has in store. The front will bear an 8-megapixel shooter for selfies and video calling. It will be running on the Android Oreo out of the box with the Sense UI laid on top.

As is standard in many flagships, the phone also features IP68 water and dust resistance. Also present is the second generation of HTC's Edge Sense hardware, which was introduced past year to let users control various functions by physically squeezing the device's sides.
