Best cases for the HTC U12+

While the U12+ hasn’t pulled HTC out of its financial doldrums, there’s no denying that it’s an intriguing handset thanks to its pressure sensitive controls and translucent rear panel. Sporting 2018 flagship specifications such as the Snapdragon 845 processor, 6GB of RAM, a dual rear camera setup, the HTC U12+has plenty things to shout about. You’ll probably need to slap a case on the HTC U12+ to keep its ‘Liquid Surface’ glass design in tip-top shape, so join us after the break to check out the best cases we could find for HTC’s latest flagship. 

Tudia Merge Heavy Duty

Kicking off the list is the [MERGE] Heavy Duty case from Tudia that features a polycarbonate outer layer to guard against scratches and a flexible TPU inner that absorbs shock.

The power, charging port, and volume buttons are easily accessed thanks to the ‘Precision-Cut’ cutouts.
