HTC U12+ Specifications, Features and Price
Though the company is in a tough spot but it just puts its best combatants in the field to preserve its position. The HTC U12+ is an upgrade on the U11+ with the company’s first flagship dual camera since the One (M8), HDR10 screen and, of course, a Snapdragon 845.
The HTC U12+ comes in roughly the same body (IP68 waterproofing and all), but the 6-inch Super LCD6 display now supports HDR10 and DCI-P3. It’s a tall 18:9 screen with 1,440 x 2,280 pixel resolution (537ppi). The pressure-sensitive frame of the phone enables Edge Sense squeeze gestures.
The phone is powered by the newer Snapdragon 845 chipset and has 6 GB of RAM (its predecessor had 4 and 6 GB versions). Storage is 64 GB or 128 GB with a microSD slot for topping that up. The phone will launch with Android 8.0 Oreo and HTC has already committed to updating it to Android P.
The dual camera on the rear features a 12 MP UltraPixel sensor, which now has a 16 MP companion, which offers 2x optical zoom. The main sensor features an f/1.8 lens with OIS and Phase detection plus Laser autofocus.
The video capabilities have been upped to 4K resolution at 60 fps to match the best in the field. And 1080p video capture goes up to 240 fps. Camera improvements do not end here – the selfie camera is also a dual shooter with two 8 MP sensors.
Despite the glass back, the U12+ doesn’t support wireless charging and its battery is smaller than that of the U11+ – 3,500 mAh vs 3,930 mAh for the outgoing model.
