The leaks come from reputed leaker Evan Blass who has also shared the specification sheet of the smartphone along with an image that reveals the complete design of the handset. As we can see in the photos, the front houses a full-screen display with 18:9 aspect ratio, and there are thick bezels along the top and bottom. The 16MP sensor has 1.0µm pixels, f/2.6 aperture, and 2x optical zoom telephoto lens. The handset will flaunt an IP68 certified design for water- and dust-resistance.
HTC sounds like it's doubling up on dual cameras, though, with a pair of shooters also occupying the front of the camera. The Edge Sense feature retains its place wherein users can squeeze the frame of the smartphone and launch a particular app or action.
According to the spec sheet, the notch-less display is a 6-inch panel with a Quad HD+ resolution and a pixel density of 537ppi. In the meanwhile, all other manufacturers adopted dual cameras, and now HTC is back with the setup on the U12+. The U12 Plus will also feature dual speakers for HTC BoomSound Hi-Fi Edition audio. The phone will run Android 8.0 Oreo with HTC Sense UI, and will be upgradeable to Android P in the future. It also features AR stickers, Pro Mode with manual controls, and panorama support. The storage variants mentioned by the source include 64GB and 128GB, which are tipped to be able to support microSD cards up to 2TB. It can also be used for face unlock and for 1080p video recording. Powering it all will be a 3,500mAh battery.
