Description

The HTC U12+ is a powerful 6-inch phone with all the markings of an Android flagship. Made of metal and glass, it comes in several stunning colors, while a fast Snapdragon 845 ticks inside of it, alongside plenty of memory. For the first time in a while, HTC is adding a dual camera on its flagship, enabling 2x zoom and portrait shots. Another dual camera setup at the front enables portrait selfies and face unlock. To complete the package, HTC is adding Edge Sense 2 – a squeeze or a double tap of the sides of the phone can act as shortcuts to frequently used features.

      IP certified - The IP code indicates the degree of protection against dust and water. The first number represents dust protection, while the second represents water protection. In IP67, for example, 6 means a completely dust-tight device, while 7 means the device can stay immersed in up to 1 meter of water for up to 30 minutes. In IP68, a higher level of water protection is expected, but exact numbers aren't specified: both depth and continuance are specified by the manufacturer on per device basis.

Displaybenchmark

  • Physical size:
    • 6.0 inches
  • Resolution:
    • 1440 x 2880 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.

    • 537 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.
