The OnePlus 6 has been and gone, the LG G7 has arrived, so there's a brief smartphone drought on the way that might free our minds from the grips of constant barrage of leaks and rumours circulating the internet. Or at least you'd hope, because now we've just allegedly found out what the HTC U12+ has to offer.
We've heard some bits about this over the past several weeks, but this most recent report, courtesy of German site WinFuture and serial leaker Evan Blass doesn't leave much to the imagination. Apparently the U12+ will have a 6-inch QHD LCD display, though imagery indicates that this isn't coming with the minimised bezel design that's been all the rage the last year or so. While some companies have used that feature as an excuse to ditch the headphone jack, HTC is not following suit and seems to ditched the 3.5mm port.
Inside if a Snapdragon 845 processor, with eight cores running up to 2.6GHz, 6GB of RAM, 64 or 128GB of storage, microSD expansion, and a 3,500 mAh battery. Camera wise we're talking about a dual lens system, with 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, and 10x digital zoom, OIS, and an 8MP front-facing camera. Video wise we've got 4K at 60fps, and slo-mo at 240fps (1080p).
Finally the phone has support for HDR 10, and is said to run Android 8.0 (Oreo) with the second generation of HTC's Sense Control - letting users squeeze to activate phone features, hold for smart rotate and dim, double-tapping for a miniature one-handed screen, and other customisable gestures.
All in all, it sounds like a pretty standard range of features. And by that I mean there's nothing truly exciting about what this leak claims the U12+ has to offer. Hopefully it will end up being priced accordingly, rather than trying to match the figures demanded by the likes of Apple and Samsung. [WinFuture | Evan Blass via Slashgear]
