HTC U12 Life sketches confirm dual-camera, rear-mounted fingerprint sensor

HTC U12 Life sketches confirm dual-camera, rear-mounted fingerprint sensor
Despite the fact that HTC is almost a sunken ship, the Taiwanese company seems to be determined to launch more mid-range smartphones. The U Life series is going to live on and the next handset HTC plans to launch is the U12 Life.

We first learned about the HTC U12 Life about a week ago and now we have a sketch showing the front and back sides of the phone. The schematics confirm the fact that the U12 Life will indeed include a dual rear camera (16MP+5MP). We can also see that there's a fingerprint scanner on the back side, whereas the dual camera is located on the left upper corner.

HTC hasn't adopted the notch (yet), as it's obvious from the image that the U12 Life features a regular display. According to a previous report, the HTC U12 Life will be equipped with a Qualcomm Snapdragon 636 processor, 4GB RAM, and 64GB storage.

Also, the phone is expected to boast a huge 6-inch display with FHD+ (2160 x 1080 pixels) resolution, as well as a massive 3,600 mAh battery. Unfortunately, we don't know when the U12 Life, but since the U11 Life was launched in November, there's a pretty good chance HTC will use the same timeframe for the new phone.

1st the A9 and now this?! Why do they keep on insisting on copying Apple, when they designed one of best looking phones ever in the m7? Can't they just tweak the design to make it more modern, and pack it with the latest hardware?

I don't know whats happening in this world .. why HTC phones still without notches ? I thought they will level it up to double notch (top and bottom ) just to put thier logo at the bottom .. but still nothing . Weird!

Will the half of the back be made of glass like Pixel phones?

Why the body of pixel 2? U11+ looks much better.

Fake, just like their 'leaked' Galaxy Tab A and Galaxy Note 9.

Ugh. Remember when companies like HTC, Motorola and Sony were releasing top of the line devices? Class leading ones? Now they're just circling the drain of mediocrity, waiting to be pulled under

HTC phones are ugly designed. All Thier phones have curved back, so when laying it flat to type it rolls. Flat rear phones are sexy.

I hope It's better than the U11life. I had two of them and both died within three months.. The glitchiest and worst phone I ever dealt with...

Do people really even care about HTC? With the far superior Note 9 releasing, I think this will be HTC's last phone and the final nail in their coffin.
