Taiwan (Web Desk): Just a day before the launch, the smartphone's specs were all over the internet. The phone was already making headlines because it was coming sans the screen notch and the headphone jack.
The most striking feature about the phone is that it relies on HTC’s pressure-sensitive tech for the side buttons, which are now fixed in place and provide haptic feedback instead of being mechanical. So, the phone can recognise which hand you’re holding it in, and squeeze the screen down to one-hande.
Although most of the specs about the device were already out, the official announcement of the launch confirmed the following specs.
The phone has a 6-inch Quad HD+ (2880 x 1440) Super LCD 6 display.
It’s IP68-rated for water and dust resistance, that it has dual cameras on both the front and the back, and that it has HTC’s beloved BoomSound speakers.
HTC is redoubling its efforts to offer a choice of digital assistants, with both Google Assistant and Amazon Alexa preloaded on the U12 Plus.
The software is based on Android 8.0.
Sporting a dual-lens rear camera system that brings OIS and EIS, the phone features a 12MP wide-angle lens with HTC’s UltraPixel 4 tech, and an impressive f/1.75 aperture. The other lens is a 16MP telephoto lens that boasts a f/2.6 aperture.
For all those who like to use their phone late at night, in bed the pressure-sensitive sides of the device really work well. They interpret how you’re holding the phone and stop the screen from rota.
