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.
