In just over 24 hours we have an important appointment to meet one of the most anticipated phones of the year.At the end, he will present to the world his new big bet for this year under the name of HTC U12 + , and the truth is that nabout this interesting high-performance terminal.
The brand itself, in fact,Therefore, just one day after the presentation event finally opens its doors, today we want to collect all the specifications, features and prices that we already know of the new HTC U12 +.
Once again, HTC will base the physical appearance of its new flagship phone on the lines that debuted in early 2016,. The new U12 + will have a waterproof glass body -IP68- , whose liquid crystal back will be dressed different colors, including translucent blue that we saw for the first time in, next to a black tone and a red one.
In the front we will find a 6-inch large screen with 18: 9 format, and some surrounding margins that are small enough to not be out of place in this universe full of “all-screen” phones. Due to the narrowing of the edges, we will not find any physical button on the front, but will be integrated into the screen itself, and as we know, will be able to measure the pressure with which the user clicks on them.
The panel itself will use technology Super LCD6 , being HTC one of the few firms that still bet on this technology and refuse to make the leap to OLED, this time with Quad HD resolution of 2,880 x 1,440 pixels . Its protection is entrusted to a Gorilla Glass 5 glass with 2.5D curvature in its four ends, which is responsible for improving the feel to the touch and hinder the work of the manufacturers of screen protectors in equal parts.
To give life to the new U12 + processor will be in charge Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 How could it be otherwise? The chip that leads the battle in the high-end telephone will be accompanied by a 6GB module of LPDDR4x RAM, in addition to 64 or 128GB of internal storage , which can be extended through microSD up to 2 TB.
A 3,500 mAh battery will be the one that will generate enough energy to maintain Android 8 Oreo – with update to Android P secured – and HTC Sense fully operational , and when going through the charger we enjoy Quick Charge 3.0 Quick Charge via USB 3.1 Type-C, or Wireless charging using the Qi standard.
HTC, again, does not forget to charge your flagship phone with exclusive features and functions that we will not find anywhere else. Perhaps the most striking is Edge Sense 2, a system renovation of frames squeezable of the U11 , that in this occasion is renewed to allow to execute apps or actions, to rotate the screen through a sustained pulsation, the possibility of quickly executing a one-hand mode, and more.
The U11 + was left out, but with the new U12 + the brand has not forgotten to make the leap to the fashion of dual cameras In fact, in this case HTC does it twice.
The back is headed by a 12 + 16 megapixel dual system . The first uses the brand’s own UltraPixel 4 technology, with an aperture f / 1.75 and a pixel size of only 1.2 μm, while the secondary, a telephoto lens with the ability to perform optical zoom up to 2 ×, has aperture f / 2.0 and pixel size of 1 μm. Accompanying the sensors is a Dual LED flash, PDAF and laser autofocus, HDR mode Boost, OIS, portrait mode and stickers in augmented reality . When recording video, the maximum resolution will be 4K @ 60fps and Slow Motion mode 1080p @ 240fps.
For its part, the front camera will also be formed by two different sensors, both 8 megapixels and f / 2.0, that among other things enable portrait mode as well as the possibility of unlocking the phone through the user’s face.
Another aspect that HTC does not neglect in its flagship phones is that of audio. The U12 + will incorporate BoomSound Hi-Fi Edition speaker system, and a USonic compatible USB Type C headset will be included in the box to replace the lack of 3.5 mm jack for headphones. When recording video, in addition, the four speakers of the phone will offer higher sound quality through systems such as Sonic Zoom or Audio Boost.
