HTC has put out two great flagship phones in two consecutive years with the HTC 10 and HTC U11. Now, the Taiwanese company is looking to continue that streak with the newly-announced HTC U12 Plus, its flagship phone for 2018. But what does the new device have to offer? Here’s everything you need to know about the HTC U12 Plus.
HTC U12 Plus To Feature Pressure-Sensitive Buttons & Translucent Back: Unveiling on 23th May
HTC has this time interestingly replaced all the physical buttons, including the volume rocker and power button, with a set of pressure-sensitive buttons to deliver a futuristic feel. The new U series model also doesn’t include a notch that has become a trend in the smartphone market since the arrival of the iPhone X in September 2017. Furthermore, the handset sports a Translucent Blue colour option that gives you a glimpse of what all is running behind the scenes. You can also choose from the Flame Red or Ceramic Black colour options – as per your preferences.
Speaking of the display, it’s a 6-inch Super LCD display with a resolution of 2,880 x 1,440. That resolution on the 6-inch screen size equates to a pixel density of 537 pixels-per-inch.On the front, you may also have noticed dual front-facing cameras. The additional camera helps with Portrait Mode selfies, but more on that later.
The HTC U12+ price in the US is set at $799 (approximately Rs. 54,600) for the 64GB model, while its 128GB variant is priced at $849 (around Rs. 58,000). Its shipments are expected to begin sometime in the middle of June.
There are two speakers — one in the earpiece and one bottom-firing speaker. HTC is still utilizing its “BoomSound” audio technology, and hopefully, that means better sound than ever before. The phone is water-resistant, coming in with an IP68 rating.
