The HTC U12 + is the last bet of this Taiwanese manufacturer that currently does not go through its best moment. It is difficult to specify at this point if their low sales are due to the quality of their smartphones or the bad reputation that have been created, but the fact is that their latest high-end has been filtered once again , and this time there is no place to doubt.
We must recognize that HTC may not be too well treated by critics and consumers, since the HTC U11 was not at all a bad smartphone and the HTC U12 + that concerns us today is a pretty attractive device that could sell well enough if it is launched at an attractive price and HTC manages to reach good distribution agreements.
We had already seen real photos of the device before, so neither can say much more that has not already been said.
It has been the famous Twitter filter Evan Blass who has gutted the official launch of the HTC U12 + by showing us this smartphone in 3 different colors.
The HTC U12 + is a smartphone with premium aspirations, something that is seen in the glass that occupies its front and back, and although their bevels are not excessively thick, they are far from the fashion of the infinite screen devices. This can be considered a point against, since not even the bottom edge has been used to house the fingerprint sensor, which is located on the back of the device.
Continuing with the analysis of its design, we see how HTC adopts a traditional flat screen , although in its back part if we can appreciate a slight curve that improves the grip of the device. And speaking of said back part, the presence of a dual photographic system in horizontal position very similar to that of LG G6 , which has underneath the mentioned fingerprint reader and a double tone flash to separate both elements.
Although it is not confirmed, to the left of the cameras we find what appears to be a small speaker , so we would be before a stereo smartphone (HTC BoomSound Hi-Fi Edition).
HTC has called its design language ” Liquid Surface “, and includes Pressure sensitive buttons .
The HTC U12 + has some measures of 156.6 x 73.9 x 8-7-9-7 mm, a weight of 188 grams and has certification IP68 of resistance to water and dust.
The HTC U12 + integrates a screen of 6 inches that places it halfway between the standard devices that are usually around 5.7-5-8 inches and the phablets of other manufacturers that move lately between 6.2 and 6.4 inches.
The resolution of this panel is WQHD + of 2880 x 14440 píxele s, so despite their frames, we have a screen with an aspect ratio of 18: 9 Protected by Gorilla Glass (version not specified).
As filtered, this panel is compatible with 100% of the color space DCI-P3 and also includes certification HDR 10.
In the purest process section we find a processor Snapdragon 845, a single variant of RAM with 6 GB of capacity and storage 64 and 128 GB, so here the HTC U12 + is a bit behind the competition.
The connectivity of the device is very complete, since it includes WiFI ac, Bluetooth 5.0, NFC and USB type C 3.1 first generation
There are some surprises in terms of the cameras , since we confirmed the presence of a double rear sensor, but one of the sensors would be 12 MPx with opening f / 1.75 (UltraPixel 4) and the other would be 16 Mpx , would act as a telephoto and would have an opening f / 2.6. For its part, the front cameras handle resolutions of 8 Mpx with opening of f / 2.0.
The HTC U12 + will include a well-known battery of 3500mAh with fast loading Quick Charge 3, while the chosen operating system is Android Oreo with HTC Sense.
With this we finish our analysis of this massive filtering of data, although when this device is definitely presented, we will give it a new review.
