HTC U12+ price and release date on Verizon, T-Mobile and AT&T

HTC took to the stage and announced a pretty stellar flagship today - the U12+ - with translucent glass version, all the specs bells and whistles, and added touches like the ability to navigate the large 6-incher without even stretching to touch the display, just by tapping or squeezing the sides.

The four surround sound mics, and the dual front and rear cameras with ultrafast focus only add to the positive impressions, and the U12+ already pegged the highest score for a dual-camera phone on DxO Mark, whatever that means. How much for this beaut, and when can you get it?

Well, HTC used the announcement event as the phone's actual release date, and the U12+ will be up for preorder as soon as today in the US and Canada in Translucent Blue and Ceramic Black on and

As for the price, HTC is asking $799 for the 64GB version, and $849 for the 128-gigger, which is a bit higher than the $719 Galaxy S9, or the $749 LG G7, but given the specs and features that the U12+ carries, a certain markup seems warranted, what are your thoughts on HTC's pricing?

Remember when a few days ago everyone was saying it was DOA because they thought the base price was going to be $950? How quickly we believe things before they’re official on this site.

Decent product and I wish HTC luck, but hope they're ramping up their marketing game because they're just doing the same thing with pricing that they seem to do every year. And that's charging more than the competition. IMO pricing has been one of HTC's problems in the last few years. They just don't have the brand recognition to justify selling their flagships significantly higher than the competition. where I am they sold the HTC 10 for $100 more than a comparable Galaxy S or iPhone a couple of years ago. And their pricing in Canada for this one is now $140 more than the comparable S9. They clearly have their sights set on the Galaxy S9+ as their competition. And to that I again wish them luck... they'll need it.

I don’t know why everyone complains about no headphone jack we are now in 2018 and Bluetooth standards are amazing. Everyone wants to complain they are audiophiles, but use apple included earbuds or something from Walmart. The Galaxy and LG will not have headphone jacks come down the line and when it happens I guess we’re just not going to buy anymore phones because.........headphone jack. People kill me.

Well why would I have to waste money on Bluetooth headphones? When I like thousands of other people have good working headphones and we already gonna have to spend money on a phone and plus buy wireless headphones like if they were that cheap ? They don't cost 20 dollars u know . I do have money but it just a pain in the u know what having to buy Bluetooth headphones when I have over 2 pairs of real good head phones I bought at Target for much less .
