HTC U12+ Has Leaked Again, on HTC's Own Website

By Tom Pritchard on at

Last week there was a pretty hefty leak that revealed pretty much everything we need to know about HTC's upcoming U12+ smartphone. Now there's been another one, on TC's own website of all places.

The phone appeared on HTC's test site late yesterday, only to be quickly taken down once people started noticing. Naturally the takedown didn't stop the information being saved and shared, though it didn't help that the phone later appeared on HTC's European online store filling in some of the blanks.

The new leaks corroborate what we heard last week, confirming the U12+ is coming with a 6-inch WQHD+ 1440 x 2880 Super LCD6 display, HTC's Boomsound speakers, IP68 water resistance, microSD expansion, a Snapdragon 845 processor, and a 3,500 mAh battery. The store page also confirmed that the 64GB model will cost £699 in the UK, which is a pretty hefty price for a company that isn't called Samsung, Google, or Apple.

Last week's leak also mentioned support for HDR 10, Android Oreo, 6 GB of RAM, no headphone jack, an 8MP front camera, as well a dual camera system featuring a 12MP wide-angle lens (with HTC's Ultrapixel tech and f1.75), a 16MP telephoto lens (f2.6), 1.85-2 x optical zoom, 10x digital zoom, and OIS.

The official announcement is due tomorrow, though at this point it might just be simpler for HTC to cut its losses and make it easier on everyone by announcing everything today. [The Verge via Android and Me]
