Latest HTC U12+ leak shows transparent design, full phone specs

Latest HTC U12+ leak shows transparent design, full phone specs

To the front is an 8MP camera with an f/2.0 aperture.

The Taiwanese Company is sticking with their own Edge Sense technology, which enables users to control the user interface with a light squeeze, despite research showing that few people used this feature in the HTC 11.

Given the OnePlus 6 is out in the wild, we wouldn't be surprised if this leak was more of a plant than a conventional leak, but maybe that's just our cynical eye.

The specifications show another high-end smartphone heading to market, with a 6-inch Super LCD Quad HD+ display with a resolution of 2880×1440 and an 18:9 aspect ratio.

This is the most complete specs list yet for the HTC U12 Plus. The leaked specs sheet also says that the phone is able to offer 23.8 hours of talk time on 3G/4G network. Out of the box, the HTC U12+ will run Android 8 Oreo with HTC's SenseUI on top. The renders for the phone show that the BoomSound implementation won't feature front-facing speakers.

The dual-camera on the back consists of a 12MP wide-angle lens with an f/1.75 aperture while the secondary 16MP camera is equipped with a telephoto lens and an f/2.6 aperture. The leak also hints at AR stickers. There is a Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 processor under the hood, with 6GB of RAM and either 64GB or 128GB of built-in storage (depending on region). The cameras will have optical image stabilization, support for AR stickers and HDR Boost 2. The onboard storage will be expandable up to 2TB via microSD card. There's also OIS and 240fps slow-mo in 1080p. A 3,500 mAh battery powers up the device.

As usual, there's no headphone jack as audio is pushed via USB-C.
