When we are speaking of Android smartphone manufacturer, the HTC inevitably comes into our mind. If you are good with smartphone history, It was Taiwanese company which became one of the first to launch Android device. However, as the world works resources are king. Ingenuity and innovation are only as good as funds behind them.
The HTC is unable to keep up with today’s smartphone giants namely Apple and Samsung. The company is not giving up if we look at the HTC U12+ specifications. We have heard a big leak right before the launch and announcement of HTC U12+.
The HTC U12+ Undergoes Major Render And Specifications Leak Laying Bare Nearly Every Detail Of The Upcoming Device
HTC is a great company with one of the advantages of operating on a smaller scale as compared to likes of Samsung that companies can exercise their creative muscle to fullest. No one can understand it better than Apple who has made the life mission to keep the cultural roots of startup intact.
HTC has exercised this muscle in the past and best examples of this phenomenon are company’s excellent BoomSound speakers and bold designs. Still, it is all about resources and resources are king, and even the mighty struggle can’t do much without resources. Today we got render and specification leak of HTC 12+, after checking these details you will have an idea of what HTC is up to.
Notorious leaker Evan Blass is back today with a significant, major leak for HTC U12+. It’s got a lot of details which cover the device’s design, processor, camera, storage, battery, and even network details
The HTC U12+ measures in at 156.6×73.9×8.7-9.7mm2. The device is manufactured with what the company refers to as a liquid surface. It carries pressure sensitive touch buttons and a fingerprint sensor at its back. At the front, we also get a dual camera setup. The device is IP68 certified and weighs in at a hefty 188g. The smartphone will be available in three different colours and carry the majority of its buttons on the right side when viewed from the front.
As expected, the HTC will run on Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 845. The device will feature only 6GB RAM as HTC will not follow either OnePlus or Xiaomi in equipping its smartphone with 8GB. The smartphone will come in two storage variants of 64GB and 128GB, with a MicroSD card slot as well.
Fans of HTC’s BoomSound speakers will not be disappointed either as the HTC U12+ will feature BoomSound HiFi edition speakers along with HTC USonic and Qualcomm’s aptX LDAC designed to work primarily with Bluetooth headsets. The HTC U12+ will also feature a 3500mAh battery with up to 23.8 hours of talk-time suggests today’s leak.
Since the HTC U12+‘s primary selling point are its camera specifications, we’ll analyze details for the front and rear camera sensors separately. The device will feature a dual rear camera setup. One of the sensors will have a 12MP resolution with f/1.75 aperture width and 1.4µm pixel size. The second will carry a 16MP resolution, a 1.0µm pixel size, and a f/2.6 aperture width. The smartphone will also support up to 10x digital and 1.85x to 2x optical zoom.
For serious users, the HTC U12+ will feature a Pro mode that allows RAW support, 32-second exposure and manual controls. Optical Image Stabilization and a Bokeh mode along with dual LED flash will also be present on the smartphone.
The HTC U12+’s rear camera will also be able to record 4K video at 60fps and 1080p slow motion video at 240fps. Video recording on the smartphone will also support OIS.
One feature of the HTC U12+ that made it to the rumour mill that we’re excited about is a dual front camera. This is a rare occurrence in the flagship market, as no mainstream high-end device right now carries such a feature. Remember our discussion of smaller companies being able to exercise their creative muscle fully above? Well, this is where it shows.
The HTC U12+ will carry an 8+8MP dual front camera with 1.12µm pixel size and f/1.75 aperture width. The smartphone’s front camera will also support Face Unlock, bokeh, panorama and Full HD 1080p video recording alongside AR stickers. Talk about being a complete package.
