https://dk2dyle8k4h9a.cloudfront.net/HTC U12: Release Date, Price, And What You Can Expect

HTC U11 was really a smart push from the Taiwan based smartphone manufacturer that received appreciation from the users. However, still, there is some scope for improvement in the HTC U11 to compete with market giants. And with HTC U12 the company is preparing to come up with something that might put some leading smartphones’ popularity in danger. There is no official information about the release date of the new HTC device yet, but the rumors are rolling out. According to the speculations HTC U12 will come out of the shadow in May. The releasing date also backed up by the previously launched HTC U11 and HTC U10, both the models were released in May and shipped in September. Earlier, the company planned to release the phone in April but pushed the launch to May. The time is suitable for the company to showcase HTC U12 as it surely wanted to avoid the direct competition with iPhone or Samsung Galaxy Note 9 launch.

HTC U12 Specifications

The rumors about the specification of HTC U12 has been roaming around the mobile market. According to sources and reports, the device will be coming with a 5.5-inch screen with the QHD+ support. HTC will be offering dual lens containing a 12 MP and a 16MP pair of lenses for capturing high-quality stable snaps. The processing unit of the phone will be working on a Snapdragon 845 chipset with 6 GB RAM. U12 also will be coming with the 8MP front camera for the selfie lovers and storage up to 256GB with a long lasting 3,420 mAh battery along with the microSD support for extending the phone's storage. However, HTC won't be giving 3.5mm jack in U12 and that is something which was expected from the company. The rumors suggested the HTC U12 Plus will be coming with specs similar to U12, except screen size and storage. HTC U12 Plus will have a 6-inch screen and 128GB storage.

Other specification of the U12 includes the IP68 which will protect it from the dust and provide the water protection. Along with this, we can also expect wireless charging in the phone that was absent in both U11 and U11 Plus.

HTC U12  Software

The software information of the HTC U12 has been leaked by some officials, which states that it will run on Android Orea using HTC Sense 10 interface. The company is also integrating the ‘HTC Face Unlock’ feature along with the company’s Edge Sense 2.0 (the squeezable sides in the phone in the HTC devices). The Edge sense technology of the company enabled the users to directly open the app just by squeezing the die of the phone.

HTC U12 Design

As far as the design is confirmed, the leaked images give a pretty good idea how HTC U12 looks. The phone comprises a curved glass back with the dual camera lens and the rear-facing fingerprint sensor. The U12 looks a little bit slimmer than U11 and it is also crafted with a metal body. The dual lens camera is placed at the top and flashlight between the camera and the fingerprint sensor. The online images show how the company using the minimal bezel for giving wider screen display to the phone. However, the overlook of the phone doesn't seem to go ‘wow’ it so pretty basic. When it comes to design ost of smartphone manufacturers are taking the risk for the consumer's attention and HTC needs to do the same.

HTC U12 The Verdict

As the HTC new smartphone model is yet to hit the market so we don't have much information to give an appropriate verdict. However, on the basis of HTC U11, we can expect some of the improvement in the upcoming model that could make it a huge success. This includes a brighter screen, a lesser fingerprint on the metal back, improved Edge Sense and better battery backup. Considering the improvements and upgrades, HTC is most likely to make U12 little bit costly and it is expected to cost $649 least. The success of the phone also depended on the timing and other smartphone launches. If HTC launches U12 in April it will be competing for head to head with Samsung Galaxy S9 Plus.
