Leaked information about the latest flagship from Taiwanese brand HTC points to quite a few exciting features. While it’s becoming much harder for smartphone manufacturers to stand out in the sea of devices produced annually, the HTC U12 Plus does have a few unique features, making it stand out from the rest.
There is no doubt that Apple and Samsung have been the rock stars of the smartphone world for a while. Despite this, other brands continue to push the envelope when it comes to innovative designs. One such brand is HTC.
One thing that is sure to stand out when it comes to the HTC U12 Plus is the Liquid Surface Design. The latest trend among smartphone technology is the bezel-less device. Even though the HTC U12 Plus doesn’t quite achieve this, its eye-catching liquid surface design makes up for it. The cases have glass backs that change colour according to the angle at which the phone is held. The translucent blue version lets you see the electronics below, while the red edition turns gold in the right light.
More highlights offered by the HTC U12 Plus
The dual lens camera with a bokeh and a pro mode is a highlight offered by the device. The two front facing cameras are not new, but are still unusual. The 2 x optical zoom option also makes it fun to use the camera.
Edge Sense makes it easy to activate features on the phone. Users just have to squeeze the sides of the phone to activate features. A simple double tap on the edge of the phone provides a new way to interact. Even better is that it won’t keep changing orientation when users are holding it in their hands – this is where the sense feature comes in quite handy.
Along with leaked information about features such as the 6 inch 1440 x 2880 Super LCD 6 screen with HDR 10 support, the 6GB RAM and 3500mAh battery and the 6GB or 124GB storage options, the HTC U12 Plus also has a nifty Face Unlock feature. Fingerprint scanner technology remains popular, but trends seem to be shifting towards the former, with the HTC U12 Plus leading the pack.
