HTC U12 leaked renders offer a better look at the upcoming flagship

HTC U12 leaked renders offer a better look at the upcoming flagship
HTC is likely to unveil it's first and possibly the only flagship for 2018 in early May. The smartphone is expected to go official as HTC U12+, even though we were expecting to get the  HTC U12 first.

Now, a handful of live pictures showing the flagship have popped up at a Taiwanese company specialized in manufacturing screen protectors. The phone shown in these images looks pretty much similar to the one that appeared in other pictures of the HTC U12.

HTC hopes to turn the tables with the U12 (or U12+) and stop bleeding money. Design-wise, the upcoming flagship looks thinner than the U11+, but that might be just an optical illusion.

Once again, the renders confirm HTC's flagship will pack a dual-camera setup and a rear-mounted fingerprint sensor. It pretty clear that the Taiwanese company has decided to do away with the notch, so as to not alienate its fans (yet).

Naturally, the phone will boast an 18:9 display and a powerful Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 processor, coupled with 6GB RAM and 64GB (or 128GB) internal storage. Also, the pictures confirm the smartphone will indeed include dual front cameras.

The back looks busy. It's a mess! Look at where they put the LED flash. I miss the old HTC designs. Whatever happened to the minimal yet classy-looking HTC phones :(

Oh yeah, it looks soooooooo busy, lol smh..... When did male fans of phones become such fashion enthusiasts? For me, it would need 3 or 4 times of what going on right now for me to even raise an eyebrow..... Anyway, this phone doesn't have a notch, so it's already winning for me. I've become attached to oled, my last 4 phones had an oled panel, and I'm not sure htc is going that route. But I'm sure this phone will have wicked specs. It also has a flat screen, which is another plus in my book. I'm in no rush to get rid of my note, but I'm paying attention to the 12

are we ever going to not complain about minute details? i mean really, the back has the camera(s), flash, and fingerprint scanner. Ther's only so many ways to slap these on the top half of the phone where your hand isn't resting. critiques like this are just absurd, and I don't even own a V30

That's the huge difference between you and a phone designer.

That's not really a bad thing imo, it could look like the U11 after all.

Don't be sorry, you don't work for LG... but none of their flagships ever looked as good as the U11 or U12

I'm not sure if you are joking. But if you really think the U11 or U12 is good looking, you must be living under a rock.

What is the USP of this phone or is it just 'another flagship' with the usual 845, 6gb, dual camera and 18:9 display?

Give it at a good price (no more than 650 euros) and I'll buy one.

Pretty clear the Taiwanese company decided to do away with the notch!? Huh!??? They never had a notch and no evidence they were going to put one. Geez where do these get these writers?

It may look similar to the V30 but I'm liking the design of the u12 and if it has wireless charging I will seriously consider it as my next phone.

Why not put the flash in between the cameras? Also why isnt this phone having the same battery as the U11+ which has 3930mah??
