After HTC announced that it won’t be announcing the flagship U12 at the MWC 2018 event in Barcelona, people started wondering as to when the new device seen at the 5G industry event will hit the market. Well, as per a new rumor, the Taiwanese smartphone manufacturer is planning to unveil the device in New York City in the spring this year. The information comes from Ricciolo (@Ricciolo1), a source known for a whole bunch of previous leaks on devices.
This means that the HTC U12 will be announced in either March or April of 2018. The U12 will sport an 18:9 aspect ratio display with a probable screen size of 6-inches and a resolution of Quad HD+. At the 5G event, the phone was displayed with a Qualcomm X20 chipset that comes with LTE modems and supports download speeds up to 1.2 Gbps.
The earlier speculations suggest that the HTC U12 will sport a Snapdragon 845 SoC and will run Android Oreo with HTC Sense UI on top. The device will be equipped with 6GB of DDR4 RAM and 128GB of internal storage. The device might also feature a dual-front camera setup for selfies. The U12, just like the latest flagship smartphones, is expected to get rid of the 3.5mm audio jack. The device will also utilize Qualcomm’s Quick Charge 3.0 or 4.0 fast charging technologies.
