The HTC U12+ has been made official as the latest Android flagship from the Taiwanese smartphone maker. It comes with a handful of changes over its predecessors which include an improved camera. In fact, it has a total of four cameras where two are present on the back and two are on the front. As expected, DxOMark put these cameras to their usual test of photos and videos where they came out with flying colors and an impressive score of 103.
With such a score, the HTC U12+ sits second on the DxOMark list of highest-rated smartphone cameras which is led by the Huawei P20 Pro with a score of 109. The team awarded 106 and 95 points to the HTC flagship for photos and videos respectively. While talking about the positive things of clicking photos, the team praised the device for "very fast and accurate autofocus, pleasant color and accurate white balance, and accurate exposure with wide dynamic range" among other things.
In terms of shooting videos, the smartphone camera showed an effective stabilization with good tracking and accurate autofocus. The team also appreciated the vivid color capturing and good exposure along with dynamic range. It did end up losing details during low light situations but when there was good light, it proved to be quite useful.
The HTC U12+ has a 12-megapixel and 16-megapixel dual camera setup on the back with f/1.75 and f/2.6 aperture respectively. It has a wide-angle lens and a telephoto lens which helps in offering up to 2x optical zoom and great portrait mode shots. HTC is allowing users to adjust the background blur and change subject of focus even after the photo has been captured. There are various other features as well like UltraSpeed Autofocus 2, HDR Boost 2, face detection, AR stickers, and RAW format support.
