Front-line phones these days feature dual rear cameras, and the HTC U12+ won't be an exception, with the spec sheet detailing a 16-megapixel telephoto lens augmented by a 12-MP wide-angle shooter.
Evan Blass, the ever-reliant leaker posted two images on his Twitter account. We can also see the dual camera setup on the back along with a fingerprint reader just above the HTC logo. Furthermore, the device will be water and dust resistance thanks to the IP68 rating. To the front is an 8MP camera with an f/2.0 aperture.
The HTC U12 Plus will feature a 6-inch Super LCD 6 screen with QHD+ resolution (1440×2880 pixels), 18:9 aspect ratio, and 537 ppi pixel density. The phone will run Android 8.0 Oreo with HTC Sense UI, and will be upgradeable to Android P in the future.
Coming to the hardware, the HTC U12+ is powered by the latest Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 processor along with Adreno 630 GPU. Other features like Edge Sense 2 with "new pressure-sensitive buttons and feedback experience" is expected. It also features AR stickers, Pro Mode with manual controls, and panorama support. It can also be used for face unlock and for 1080p video recording. Depending on region, it comes with either 64GB or 128GB of storage which is expandable via microSD up to 2TB.
With the help of the 3500mAh battery, you will be able to charge the device up to 50 percent in 30 minutes. What's more, the HTC smartphone will also include BoomSound speakers. On the connectivity front, the phone supports 4G VoLTE, Bluetooth 5.0, WiFi 802.11 a/b/g/n/ac, NFC, GPS, AGPS, GLONASS, Galileo, BeiDou and dual SIM. There will be no 3.5mm headphone port on the HTC U12 Plus, so you'll have to make do with a USB Type-C port.
