HTC U12+

We are all a bit curious about the block-chain based HTC phone that is reported to be released this week. However, this post is about the HTC U12+ which is expected to hit the audience on May 23.

What we see is that the noted gadget blogger Evan Blass posted photos and even what seems to be an entire three-page spec sheet (and embargo details) of the U12+

The specs promise “new pressure-sensitive buttons” and an updated version of HTC’s Edge Sense 2, which turns phone squeezes into actions and promises squeezes that help the user control his phone or access apps, smart rotate and screen dim actions, back key and navigation bars, double-taps for mini screen modes and customizable gestures. It looks to have the same curved “liquid surface” design of the HTC U11+ last year.

The specs for the HTC U12+ that we know are:

  • Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 processor
  • 6-inch 2,880×1,440 18:9 LCD display, 537 ppi
  • 6GB RAM
  • 64GB/128GB storage
  • MicroSD card slot
  • Dual rear cameras (12MP wide angle, f/1.75, and 16MP telephoto, f/2.6), with OIS, phase detection and laser autofocus, dual LED flash)
  • Dual front cameras (both 8MP, f/2.0, wide angle)
  • 3,500 mAh battery
  • USB-C
  • Quick charge adapter
  • Android Oreo 8.0 with HTC Sense

 

All of this seems pretty cool to get us intrigued by the device. We see that the storage of the phone can be increased by an SD card making it attractive for people who like to store all of their data on their device and not cloud services. Also, the dual back cameras are attractive too for photographing the perfect moments or just taking a really good selfie with the dual front wide angle camera. The phone is expected to run on Oreo 8.0 but we aren’t sure how that will add up to the overall working of the device.
