HTC confirms its next flagship phone is coming this month

HTC May 23 Event HTC U12

The HTC U11+, launched in November 2017 became HTC's first smartphone to sport an 18:9 aspect ratio and thin bezels.

Otherwise, we'll have to see just what HTC has in store in a few weeks.

Flagship smartphones in 2018 have not disappointed so far.

Although the image teased by HTC does not reveal much about the purported new smartphone, from what we can tell, the new device would feature four camera sensors, a fingerprint sensor and a microSD slot.

The month of April went by without HTC's next flagship in sight, as recently suggested by a previous rumor. The device will not feature a notch on the top like other devices such as the LG G7 ThinQ and the upcoming OnePlus 6. A phone that is more than the sum of its specs'. We can't detail the specs but we can see a dual camera system.

The U12 Plus will run on Android 8.0 Oreo with HTC Sense UI and USonic for Active Noise cancellation. The device's camera performance and build quality were appreciated and we expect HTC to build on that with the HTC U12+.

Initially spotted bearing the codename "Imagine", the smartphone is expected to pack a 6-inch LCD panel on the front with WQHD+ resolution, hinting at an 18:9 or 19:9 display resolution. The SIM tray also confirms the phone has dual SIM support.

The smartphone will be powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 Mobile Platform paired with up to 6GB of RAM and 256GB of internal storage.

The battery capacity of the device is said to be a 3420mAh unit, and it will be an IP68 certified smartphone.
