Rumor mill: HTC U12+ to be officially introduced in May
HTC is expected to launch a single flagship smartphone in 2018, unlike the previous years when the Taiwanese company released two top-tier devices. The U12+ is the name of the upcoming HTC flagship and, as we reported numerous times in the past, is likely to make its debut on the market in coming months.

Apparently, the Taiwanese media has more information on the U12+'s launch and reports sources familiar with HTC's plans claim the flagship will be officially unveiled in early May. The release window chosen by the handset maker confirms the handset maker wants to avoid competing with big names like Samsung, Xiaomi, and Oppo.

The same report suggests the HTC U12+ will be equipped with a large 6-inch display, a powerful Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 processor, 6GB RAM and either 64GB or 128GB internal memory. Also, the phone will be powered by a 3,420 mAh battery and should feature a dual-camera setup (12MP+16MP) on the back, as well as dual-camera configuration (8MP+8MP) camera in the front.

Obviously, the phone will ship with Android Oreo on board along with Edge Sense UI, which will enable users to take advantage of various gestures like squeeze to activate the camera, Facebook, or other apps.

One other important aspect that remains to be determined is the price tag that will come attached to the HTC U12+, as that's likely to boost sales (or not).
