It’s almost a year not that The HTC U11 was released and a successor is due to emerge.

Some specs allegedly to be the phone has been leaked by a ROM developer, LlabTooFeR, who is known to command a good track record for leaking HTC-related info. The below is a long list he tweeted which houses the U12’s alleged specifications;

The display is said to be a 5.99″ QHD+ unit, likely in the 18:9 ratio we saw previously. In keeping with other 2018 flagships, the HTC U12 will reportedly come with a Snapdragon 845, as well as up to 6GB of RAM and up to a whopping 256GB of storage. There will apparently be two rear cameras — one 12MP sensor and one 16MP Sony IMX3xx unit — and a single 8MP front-facing camera. The battery comes in at 3,420mAh, and IP68 water resistance is present.
Android 8.0 Oreo with Sense 10 is supposedly on board, which means that we’ll be seeing Treble and A/B updates. Edge Sense 2.0 and HTC Face Unlock are on board as well. And lastly, there will apparently be both single- and dual-SIM versions.
The phone will apparently be released in April, so we’ve only got about a month to wait. It should be interesting to see how the U12/Imagine matches up with competitors like the recently-revealed Galaxy S9/S9+ and ASUS ZenFone 5Z.
