HTC U12+ Specifications

After a few revealing leaks in recent weeks, the HTC U12+ has been officially announced, bringing some familiar 2018 flagship components such as the Snapdragon 845 processor and a 6-inch QHD display with 2:1 aspect ratio, and an all-glass design. Differentiating factors include HTC’s BoomSound dual speakers, Edge Sense, and the omission of the notch that has appeared on phones such as the LG G7 ThinQ, OnePlus 6, and Huawei P20 Pro in 2018. Well done HTC.  The U12+ is available to pre-order from Amazon as well as directly from HTC for $799/£699. Join us after the break for the full rundown on the HTC U12+’s specifications.
