There are also some unreleased devices worth some attention. We’re talking about the upcoming HTC U12+ or LG G7. We know a brand new HTC phone is coming soon, and new leaks are revealing key information ahead of the event and eventual release date.
HTC U12 Leaks & Rumors
Even though the company sold most of its smartphone division to Google, a new HTC phone is still in the works for this year. Past HTC smartphones like the U11 and U Ultra were nice, however, they couldn’t compete with Samsung or Apple. That could all change in 2018 with the new HTC U12. Well, or the HTC U12+. And while we’re still waiting for the May 23rd launch event, we have a pretty good idea of what to expect already.
The new HTC U12 surfaced on Facebook and has leaked several times ahead of the May release event and date. Furthermore, Evan Blass just unveiled everything about this phone on Twitter. There are no surprises left. His track record is proven, so we’re confident in most of our information in the slideshow below.
HTC’s new phone will reportedly come with a big 6-inch long and skinny screen like the Galaxy S9 or iPhone X. Pair that with four cameras, a premium design, and the latest specs, and this phone sounds exciting.
With teasers here and the event only a few weeks away, you might want to wait just a little longer to see what HTC has in store next. That said, there are also a few reasons why you might want to skip the wait and get something else today.
Wait for Four Cameras
In case you haven't seen any of the leaked photos yet, the new HTC U12+ will reportedly come with four cameras. Yes, that's FOUR. And while you won't get three on the back like the Huawei P20 Pro, that's still plenty of glass worthy of taking amazing photos.
According to several reports and sources, HTC will bring their A-game to the smartphone photography market with this device.
On the back, we're hearing it'll feature a pair of 16 and 12-megapixel sensors. One is likely a fast f/1.7 aperture lens, while the second one can zoom, blur subjects, or used as an RGB or monochrome sensor. We're not entirely sure yet.
However, around to the front, you'll notice two more cameras. These will both likely be 8MP, or 16MP, and will help deliver improved selfies and photography from the front camera setup. Over the years HTC has continued to offer a great camera experience, and if you want some of the best, wait for the HTC U12.
For those wondering, the name is the HTC U12, but a few leaks claim HTC might launch it as the HTC U12+ to better compete with Samsung and Apple's "plus" devices.
