We are just a few days away from the official unveiling of the HTC flagship device that is expected to contend with the likes of the G7 ThinQ, the Galaxy S9 duo, the latest OnePlus 6 and even the upcoming Mi 7. We are referring to the HTC U12+, and like we all know, the leaks won’t stop popping in until it finally official.
While the device hasn’t been so much of a visitor to the rumor mill, we do know a few things about the device before now, but the entire specifications and official-looking renders of the HTC U12+ have just been revealed by reliable leakster Evan Blass (@evleaks).
From an external design standpoint, the upcoming HTC U12+ somewhat looks like last years’ flagship LG V30 and G6, though looks attractive and lacks the copycat notch above its display. Measuring 156.6×73.9×8.7-9.7mm2, the device adopts the Liquid Surface design, with a cool looking curved glass back fitted with dual camera setup in horizontal alignment with a fingerprint sensor and a LED flash below it. While the device is said to be IP68 certified, the specs sheet also mentions that the device will feature a “new pressure-sensitive buttons” and an updated version of HTC’s Edge Sense 2.

The device flaunts a large 6-inch 2880×1440 18:9 Super LCD screen with no notch, and is powered by the Snapdragon 845, coupled with 6GB of RAM and 64 or 128GB of storage (with microSD expansion). Above the display, there is dual-camera setup with two 8-megapixel sensors with 1.12µm pixel size and f/1.75 aperture width, Face Unlock, bokeh, panorama as well as Full HD 1080p video recording alongside AR stickers.
The main camera too is a dual rear camera setup made of a 12MP sensor with f/1.75 aperture, 1.4µm pixel size, while the secondary camera is a 16MP sensor with a 1.0µm pixel size, a f/2.6 aperture with up to 10x digital and 1.85x to 2x optical zoom.
With a capable 3500mAh battery with quick charge 5, and with a claim of up to 23.8 hours of talk-time, the HTC U12+ is tipped to boot Android Oreo HTC sense out of the box.
Pricing details as well as well as rollout plans should be made known at the launch.
