On 23 May, 2018, HTC unveiled the HTC U12+ smartphone, which boasts a 6” widescreen display with 18:9 aspect ratio, and Edge Sense 2 for intuitive one-handed interactions. Let’s look at the key features of the new HTC U12+!
HTC U12+ Smartphone with Edge Sense 2
HTC calls the HTC U12+ their biggest and boldest flagship smartphone ever. Let’s take a look at its key features, and see if it lives up to that claim!
Edge Sense 2
The new Edge Sense 2 knows which hand you are using, giving you one-handed freedom to double tap to navigate the device, hold to lock the screen orientation, or squeeze the sides for taking photos and videos, zooming in on maps, and virtually any interaction.
Dual Camera On Both Sides
The HTC U12+ features two cameras on the front and back, with a slew of features to help you deliver beautiful photos with DSLR-like bokeh.
UltraSpeed Autofocus 2 uses full sensor phase detection autofocus (PDAF) and new laser autofocus to ensure you never miss your shot, while HDR Boost 2 lets you take photos in any lighting condition.
The main camera’s 2X optical zoom and 10X digital zoom for photos means you are always ready for a close-up, while video with Sonic Zoom lets you “zoom in” on a sound or voice so you are truly the director of the scene.
And with one-touch auto zoom, it’s almost like you have Hollywood in your pocket. It’s so good, the U12+ received a DxOMark score of 103 – the highest rated camera in the industry for a dual camera smartphone.
The HTC U12+ features louder BoomSound speakers and USonic earbuds featuring Active Noise Cancellation to keep out unwanted distractions. It also supports Qualcomm aptX HD for high resolution 24-bit Bluetooth audio.
Liquid Surface Design
The HTC U12+ features thin screen borders and new pressure-sensitive buttons encased in vibrant colours. The Translucent Blue colour lets you admire its beauty both inside and out, while Ceramic Black offers a sophisticated look and Flame Red offers colour-shifting hues.
Flagship Power + Performance
The HTC U12+ is powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 Mobile Platform, with 6 GB of LPDDR4x memory, and up to 128 GB of storage. The U12+ is also VR-ready for the Vive Focus (coming soon) with phone call and notification sync, plus mirror mode to turn your smartphone into your own personal VR theater.
