Roland Quandt on Twitter was probably the first person to notice the U12 Plus’s listing on HTC’s Chinese website. However, the website has since gone comatose. But, we’ve already extracted a lot of information. According to the website, the HTC U12 Plus is supposed to be estimated at 5,888 Yuan in China, which roughly costs up to $920.
Speculating that, the flagship could be counted into the top-league comprising the iPhone X, the Samsung Galaxy S9, and the Huawei P20 Pro; considering its high-value. Allegedly, it’s set to have the signature boom sound speakers, IP68 rated water and dust resistance, a micro SD card slot for storage expansion up to 2TB and a ‘little less than before’ battery at 3,500 mAh; while the U11 Plus had a 3,930 mAh powerhouse.
Apart from that, at the core, there is a Snapdragon 845 chipset– the one you can find on most new Android flagships, 6GB of RAM and 128GB of internal storage.
The HTC U12 Plus also has a unique design characteristic with a translucent back; slightly showcasing some of the phone’s internals. And it’ll be available in three colors if at all the final product’s based on the grounds set by these leaks.
This isn’t a rookie mistake, blunders like this have happened with many smartphone manufacturers before, and some even gave out a lot more than what HTC has accidentally offered us on a platter. However, as The Verge notes– there won’t be much to speak about at the phone’s launch as we’ve already known everything!
