HTC U12+ briefly shows up on official website, specs and price revealed

But not before the media copy/pasted all the information about its specs and price. Firstly, the HTC U12+ will be available for purchase in China for the equivalent of $920, which is quite a lot considering we're talking about the Chinese market where smartphones are usually priced lower than the rest of the world.
The nearly $1,000 smartphone does come with 6GB RAM and 128GB internal memory, so HTC may launch cheaper versions with less memory inside. We've also been able to learn that HTC U12+ will feature IP68 rating, Boomsound speakers and microSD card slot for memory expansion (up to 2TB).
The U12+ will be powered by a 3,500 mAh battery and ships with Android Oreo on board. Other specs that have been confirmed include a powerful Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 processor, a 6-inch Super LCD6 display with WQHD+ (1440 x 2880 pixels) resolution (no notch) and a dual-camera setup.
The smartphone is expected to be unveiled on May 23 and from what we've seen on HTC's official website, the U12+ will be available in three colors.
- Display 6.0" 1440 x 2880 pixels
- Camera 12 MP / 8 MP front
- Processor Qualcomm Snapdragon 845, Octa-core, 2800 MHz
- Storage 128 GB + microSDXC
- Battery 3500 mAh(23.8h 3G talk time)

Hahahahahahaha! With that price I imagine the LG G7 will smoke the U12+ in sales. It breaks my heart because I love my HTC 10 so much that seeing HTC fail is hard to watch. But that price tag is broken. Especially when you see the price the OnePlus 6 has on it!

Joke's on you. None of these phones will even sell. People aren't even buying the S9 - Androids latest and greatest flagship...

Yes, it's hilarious that you compare a high-end HTC with a wannabe high-end One+6! You get what you pay for and LG's OS is sub-par, have fun with that and oh, the 1+6 OS too, have fun getting updates haha!

$920 for a device that has long lost it's brand recognition? Wth are they planning? The screen isn't even amoled/oled to justify their asking price.

The phone looks great, the only way to suceed in todays market would be the route of oneplus. Price it 699$ and make it stock android with a little extra features and give a promise of 3 years of updates. Then i will buy an android phone.

$920 will buy me a OP6 and a laptop ... And given all the trouble I've had with my HTC 10 and what a dud that was/is, asking me to plop down $920 is hard pill to swallow - even given that HTC has probably had about 70% of my phone purchases over the last 10 years. Price it even in the neighborhood of the OP6, and we'll talk. At $920, no way.

Too high of a premium against competition. HTC won me away from my Treo WX650 back in the day with good build and forward thinking. Cost was high but had little competition. Sadly I parted with them just after their One-X line, they made some nice stuff back in the day. Now they're another OEM that priced themselves out of the race like a popular Japanese OEM has. Still a good product, but in face of competitors it's not enough to be just good and sell high anymore. Jmtc
