HTC U12+ in Flame Red goes up for pre-order in the US, shipments begin next month

HTC U12+ in Flame Red goes up for pre-order in the US, shipments begin next month
When HTC unveiled the U12+ back in May, the Taiwan-based brand showcased a total of three colors: Translucent Blue, Ceramic Black, and Flame Red. These were subsequently made available to purchase in international markets but consumers in the US failed to receive the latter color. Today, though, this changes, as the Flame Red HTC U12+ has just been put up for pre-order in the market.

Internally, the new variant is no different to the others, bringing a Snapdragon 845 to the table alongside 6GB of RAM and 64GB of internal storage. However, it’s fair to say that the model is certainly one of the most striking offerings when it comes to the external aspect. After all, while the variant in question may not offer the translucent rear seen on the blue model, it does bring a new color-shifting effect to the design. In fact, while at first glance the smartphone seemingly boasts a pinkish hue, this changes to various warmer tones such as orange or gold depending on the lighting conditions and the angle it’s being held at.

Those who may have been waiting for the Flame Red color to arrive will be pleased to know that it comes at no extra cost, this means the same price of $799 is maintained, with shipments of the new color option currently slated to begin on Monday, September 10. In regards to where it can be purchased from, the smartphone is available to pre-order through HTC’s own website exclusively at the moment.
