HTC U12+ vs Galaxy S9+ vs OnePlus 6: specs comparison
The HTC U12+ is now official, inheriting the mantle from the HTC U11 and aiming to help HTC hold its diminishing ground on the already jam-packed Android market.

With a Snapdragon 845, 6GB of RAM, 64 or 128GB of native storage, the HTC U12+ is as well-spec'd as any other self-respecting flagship device out there. Of course, it has its fair share of unique features that add tons of merit, namely thanks to its four cameras, promising audio capabilities, and intriguing color options.
