HTC U12 listed on Verizon website with 'frameless' display, 3500mAh battery

Verizon's Open Development website is the gift that keeps on giving, after outing the 128GB/256GB versions of the Galaxy S9 not long ago. This time around, it's time for HTC's rumored 2018 flagship, the U12, to shine in the database.

The device is listed as having "frameless" Super LCD 6-gen display with WQHD resolution, and Gorilla Glass protection (duh). The U12 apparently has IP68 water-resistant rating, and a 3500mAh battery pack. The rest is run of the mill specs like Bluetooth 5.0 or 4K video recording, while software duties are reserved for Android 8.0 with the HTC Sense Companion overlay.

The fact that the Verizon Open Development listing says LTE Cat 12 is an eyebrow-raiser, though, as that's a pretty old standard that doesn't do the Cat 18 in Snapdragon 845 justice. Let's hope that these are just the minimum requirements for the U12 to be included in the Open Development testing platform. Listed in the "new" section, the device was just added yesterday, so the rumors that it will be released next month might pan out, after all.

Can’t wait to see what hTC brings to table this year with U12. Only thing is that they should price it right.
