We have been hearing a lot about HTC U12 Life that is a mid-range smartphone that earlier got seen on the Geekbench website. An earlier teaser suggested that the phone would be launching on 30th August and it seems that the time is here when the phone is finally curtained off with Android 8.1 Oreo. The phone has been launched in Berlin, Germany and would be rolling out to other parts of the world in an upcoming month.
What apparently makes the phone unique is the design and build. Having a mixture of smooth acrylic glass and horizontal lines that are etched into the glass, this mid-range smartphone has a unique elegance to it. The phone comes in two color options. One being Moonlight Blue while another Twilight Purple. Talking about the front display panel, it’s a 6-inch display with an impressive 18:9 aspect ratio much similar to the U12+.
The display has the resolution of 1080 x 2160 px which is comparatively on the lower side considering the competition though interestingly, HTC didn’t have the top display-notch like U12+, contrary to many speculations made before the launch. The phone also packs a 3.5 mm headphone jack to its advantage. Apart from these specs, U12 Life offers an applaudable 3,600 mAh battery though it doesn’t support fast charging capability.
For the photography lovers, the phone offers 16+15MP dual camera on the rear side whereas the primary sensor is f/2.0 aperture, while the second is used for the bokeh effect. The front facing camera is a 13MP sensor with f/2.0 aperture. Talking about the processing power that resides inside the newly launched mid-ranger, the U12 Life incorporates Snapdragon 636 chipset coupled with a 4GB RAM. It also comes with a 64-storage capacity that could be expanded via microSD card.
