HTC U12 Plus (2Q55100) 6GB 128GB 6.0-inches LTE Dual SIM Factory Unlocked Mobile Phone (International Version) (Translucent Blue)

$779.99

HTC hasn't done well in the past few years and the business has experienced losses every quarter. However, HTC always succeeds in introducing a smartphone of the highest quality every year. However, everything was betting last year on HTC U12+ in Australia.

The smartphone is an evolution of a predecessor in quite a few ways. The phone also has virtual keys which can be operated at the side of the display with slight pressure on the aluminum edge. This innovation has, however, led to a catastrophe and to HTC's deception.

Don't allow this cloud to make you believe that HTC U12 Plus in all other departments is almost perfect. It is a great pity that HTC chose the virtual keys rather than come up with a more traditional solution. Is the latest HTC offer good enough to save it? Let’s find out below!

HTC U12+ Cameras:

A predecessor U11 Plus is holding a single rear camera – 12MP and a single front-facing sensor which consists of 16MP.

However, U11 Plus is lacking a portrait mode and quite a few other effects but it did give an excellent performance with detailed and colourful images. The U12 Plus comes with upgrades – holding dual rear sensors – 12MP + 16MP and 8MP + 8MP front cameras.

The dual rear cameras perform better in numerous areas such as HDR Boost, Sharp Images, Noise Reduction, Bokeh Effect, and others.

HTC U12+ Design:

For the next offer, the Taiwanese company chose a liquid design. In both, the front and rear, the HTC U12 Plus design pictures show a narrow side of curved glass. The6-inch Super LCD6 display with 18:9 aspect ratio comes with minimal bezels and sports.

This device comes with Edge Sense keys, unlike other smartphones with physical buttons. These are said to give the user the feeling of pressing physical keys. It also has the waterproof IP68 rating, making it up to 1.5 meters safe underwater.

HTC U12+ Always-On Features and Audio:

Generally, most HTC smartphones with the best audio capabilities are available. And in this respect, this one could be far better than the previous models. The handset features an Always-on feature and captures good audio too.

HTC U12+ Price and Availability:
