HTC U12+ Camera Outruns Huawei P20 at DxOMark

HTC U12+

Yesterday, as planned, the Taiwanese smartphone maker, HTC announced its only flagship for 2018 in face of the HTC U12+. This is also the first Snapdragon 845-powered phone of the manufacturer. Externally, there are not many changes in comparison to the HTC U11. It still continues the sleek exterior design style of the previous-gen flagship. But under the hood, the company has organized an overhaul. Plus, the selling point of the U12+ is considered to be the camera. Today it became known the DxOMark. Honestly, we are surprised.

The HTC U12+ is packed with a 12MP+16MP rear dual-camera on the back. The main wide-angle sensor comes with a f/1.75 aperture, while the second telephoto sensor uses a /2.6 aperture. This camera is capable of achieving 1.85 – 2x optical zoom and up to 10x digital zoom. Of course, it can shoot 4K videos at 60fps, 1080P at 240fps slow-motion videos, and supports OIS.

The camera features are outstanding. And it can struggle with any top-branded smartphone coming with strong photography capabilities. This is not an assumption only. The camera’s strength was also confirmed by DxOMark. It has got 103 points, which exceeds the Huawei P20’s 102 points. So it turns out we’ve been talking about the most powerful dual-camera handset available on the market.

Apart from this, the HTC U12+ comes with a Snapdragon 845 chip paired with a 6GB of RAM and 64/128GB of native storage and a 6-inch Super LCD 6 screen with tons of crazy features such as a 2880 x 1440 resolution, DCI-P3, sRGB color gamut, and HDR 10 support.

The 128GB variant is priced at NT$24,900 ($830), while the 64GB model costs NT$23,900 ($797). The phone will go on sale in China tomorrow at a price tag of 5888 yuan ($923).

      The Huawei P20 Pro has three cameras though, so technically the statement is correct. 😉
