Last month, we got to know the key details of the upcoming HTC U12+ smartphone. The rumors also suggest the company to skip launching the HTC U12 smartphone this year. However, the HTC U12 smartphone is now leaked in full glory. Just like its elder sibling, the HTC U12 also comes with the metal frame and curved glass back body. The leaked image of the retail box reveals the complete specifications of the device. Apart from the smaller screen size, the HTC U12 packs same internals as seen the HTC U12+.
The HTC U12 comes with a 5.5-inch display with Quad HD+ (2880 x 1440 pixels) resolution and 18:9 aspect ratio. Unlike other manufacturers, HTC isn’t yet embracing the notch. The device comes protected with Corning Gorilla Glass 5 on the front and rear. Under the hood, it comes powered by 10nm Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 octa-core processor coupled with Adreno 630 GPU and 8GB of RAM. While this particular variant comes with 128GB of onboard storage, we also expect to see at least one more storage variant.
There is also a MicroSD card slot for expanding the storage up to 2TB. It also supports dual SIM dual standby and offers 4G VoLTE connectivity. The device runs on Android 8.0 Oreo out of the box with Sense UI laid on top. Talking about the cameras, the HTC U12 is mentioned to come with a single 12MP Ultra Pixel 4 camera with f/1 .5 aperture. For selfies, there is a dual camera setup featuring dual 8MP sensors on the front. Both the front and rear cameras support OIS for super smooth videos.
With the HTC U12 smartphones, the company will be introducing the Edge Sense 2. It will be supporting Quick Charge 4+ and also wireless charging. The device can also record 3D audio and includes Hi-Res BoomSound speakers. Since the device lacks 3.5mm audio jack, the company will be offering HTC Usonic wireless earphones. The HTC u12 will come equipped with a fingerprint sensor and includes NFC support. As of now, there is no information about the launch date of these new flagship devices from HTC.
