HTC U12+ to be priced as the Galaxy S9, release date tipped for June 1

HTC U12+ to be priced as the Galaxy S9, release date tipped for June 1
We just did our grand roundup of all the rumors and leaks about the eventual swan songs of HTC's flagship line - the U12 and U12+ - that might have been conceived before Google took over the company's Pixel-making department, and poached 2000 engineers with them. Lo and behold, as if to confirm that these two phone are indeed coming soon, the U12+ pricing has leaked straight out of Taiwan from a source that has had good HTC scoops in the past.

It turns out that HTC might have learned a lesson, and is pricing the U12+ concurrently with the Galaxy S9 on its home front. The release date is set for June 1, or a week after the eventual official unveiling on May 23rd, which also sounds legit. The pricing for the U12, or if there will even be one, is not mentioned in the report, which leaves one more mystery to ponder on in the next two weeks.
