HTC may have just confirmed the date its new flagship smartphone will be unveiled. According to an image shared by HTC Germany, the U12+ will be announced on May 23.
The Taiwanese company chose an interesting way of announcing the event, as the image teased shows all the components that go into a smartphone. We can't say for sure if they belong to the U12+, but it's highly unlikely the announcement will involve a different device.
The tweet that's gone live earlier today reads: “A masterpiece, the whole, holds much more than the sum of its parts... more we will show you on the 23rd of May.” (translated)
Just like every other flagship launched this year, the HTC U12+ will come equipped with a powerful Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 processor, paired with 6GB RAM and, possibly, 128GB internal memory.
Thanks to the live pictures leaked last week, we now know the smartphone will feature a mirror-like glass finish, but there will be no notch for HTC's flagship. As expected, the U12+ will include dual rear cameras and a rear-mounted fingerprint sensor.
HTC U12+ does not include a 3.5mm audio jack, so you'll have to do with the USB Type-C port that's been positioned on the bottom side. It remains to be seen how much the U12+ will cost, but it will probably be expensive like all HTC flagships before it.

I hate to see terrible trend going on for removing headphone jack for no reason at all other than greed. I will avoid those jackless phone as long i can

A few off the top of my head: - an extra unnecessary step - an extra dongle to carry - the inability to keep your phone charged while listening through wired headphones - added wear and tear on an already frequently used and highly important USB-C port

I had the u11 and it was great phone, sadly lack of updates which saddened me so being wise and smart I sold it and bought a shiny mate 10 pro, how idiot I was. It's even worse in updates then the u11 but i learned my lesson now. The mate 10 pro is an excellent phone but lacks in the update departament...

Anyone think that this may be a hint for another translucent phone?
