This is backed up by by 6GB of RAM and at least 64GB of inbuilt storage, with an additional slot for Micro SD memory card expansion up to an additional 2TB. Available for pre-order May 23 for $799, the U12 Plus aims to win over consumers with flashy styling and high-end features. It comes in Titanium Black, Flame Red, and Translucent Blue colour options. If it all feels a bit too modern, leaving you on the verge of future shock, you're covered, too: grab the Translucent Blue model, which channels the original iMac by providing a glimpse of the phone's innards. Moreover, this is HTC's first phone with a dual camera since the One M8, something that's now pretty standard in the industry. On the front, it seems to sports an 18:9 edge-to-edge display with quite thin bezels on either sides.

These scores are also on par with other Android flagships for 2018. The U12+'s volume and power buttons on the side aren't, in fact, buttons this time around. Notably, there is no 3.5mm audio jack available.

HTC Just Revealed U12 Plus Early: Here's All the Specs

Last year, HTC presented the U11, a smartphone that was very impressive and gave users a new way of interacting with Edge Sense technology. For example, users can now open the "Edge Launcher" with a gentle double-click. In addition, the buttons can be laid on the display. And with one-touch auto zoom, it's nearly like you have Hollywood in your pocket.

The frame is pressure-sensitive, which can be used for all the squeeze functions but this time, the company added some new features like tap and hold.

There's also something called HDR Boost 2 which HTC claims delivers smoother, crisper, more detailed photos with less noise and better dynamic range when the lights are down or glaring. Other specs that have been confirmed include a powerful Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 processor, a 6-inch Super LCD6 display with WQHD+ (1440 x 2880 pixels) resolution (no notch) and a dual-camera setup. The almost $1,000 smartphone does come with 6GB RAM and 128GB internal memory, so HTC may launch cheaper versions with less memory inside. The rear-camera also comes equipped with Optical Image Stabilization (OIS) and a dual LED flash. And 1080p video capture goes up to 240 fps.

On the front, the HTC U12+ has a dual camera setup that includes dual 8MP sensors with 1.12μm pixel size and f/2.0 aperture. A USB-C 3.1 port is on the bottom, and there's WiFi 802.11ac, Bluetooth 5.0, NFC, and 4G LTE support for AT&T, Verizon, and T-Mobile. The smartphone is also an IP68 certified for water and dust resistant and has a fingerprint scanner at the back.
