Description

HTC U12 Life sits a step below the U12+ flagship but doesn't shy away from harboring some top-shelf specs such as up to 6GB RAM and 128GB storage, dual camera, and a big battery. The 6" display is 1080p, and the octa-core chipset is Snapdragon 636 - these are the only thing that would preclude the U12 Life from being flagged as a high-end device. The dual camera on the back is comprised of 16MP main sensor plus a 5MP depth-sensing one.

  • Resolution:
    • 1080 x 2160 pixels
  • Pixel density:

    Pixel density - The pixel density of a display represents the number of pixels over an area of one inch. It’s measured in “pixels per inch”, or ppi. The higher the number, the more detailed and good-looking the display is.

    • 402 ppi
  • Technology:

    Technology - There are two main screen technologies currently used in phones and tablets: LCD and AMOLED. The former usually features a light source and liquid crystals, while the latter is based on organic light-emitting diodes. Newer LCD variations like IPS-LCD and Super-LCD allow for very accurate color reproduction and very wide viewing angles, where no significant image quality loss is observed. Current AMOLED screens differ in such a way that they can exhibit much more saturated colors (sometimes too much) and incredibly high contrast levels, which is due to black color being completely black in AMOLED displays.
