Don't Wait If You Want a Big Screen
If you're looking for a huge screen, don't wait for the new HTC phone. That's because even though we're hearing they'll call it the HTC U12+ or Plus, it only has a 6-inch screen. And while that's big, there are bigger.
Consider something like the Galaxy S9+ with its 6.2-inch screen, or even the bigger Galaxy Note 8. Not to mention the LG G7 will likely have a 6.1-inch screen, and we're waiting for a new Google Pixel 3 XL this year too.
At the end of the day, the new HTC U12 will have plenty to like. Aside from an average (but not great) SLCD screen, it'll be a top-notch phone across the board.
