HTC U12+ to have four color variants, including Translucent
Expected to be HTC's only high-end smartphone of 2018, the unannounced U12+ (allegedly pictured above) should be officially showcased later this month, on May 23. Until that happens, we have some new details about the handset.
According to Roland Quandt (who's provided accurate information in the past), the HTC U12+ will be available in four color variants, at least in Europe. The colors are Black, Violet, Red Rose, and Translucent. As you may know, the HTC U11+ (introduced in November last year) also has a Translucent variant - this allows you to view the phone's innards through a semi-transparent rear panel. All in all, the Translucent U12+ will probably look pretty cool.
Reportedly, the HTC U12+ "won’t be cheap." But that’s hardly a surprise, as pretty much all of HTC's high-end phones released until now have been anything but cheap. Of course, we weren't expecting the U12+ to be cheap anyway. The handset supposedly has features that'll allow it to stand next to any other Android flagship out there, including a powerful Snapdragon 845 processor, a 6-inch screen with thin bezels, 6 GB of RAM, water resistance, and a 3,500 mAh battery.
Unlike the U11+, which wasn't officially launched in the US, the HT U12+ will almost certainly be sold stateside. Not long ago, the smartphone was briefly listed on Verizon's website, so there's at least one carrier that's planning to sell it. We'll be here to let you know all about the HTC U12+ as soon as the device is officially announced.
