Latest HTC U12+ leak shows transparent design, full phone specs


From the leak, we can confirm that the HTC U12+ will have a glass back akin to the recently launched OnePlus 6, and a 6-inch LCD display with WQHD+ resolution.

There's not much that's actually new here, but both the specs list and images look official and come from Evan Blass, who's a reputable leaker, so they're likely accurate, especially as the HTC U12 Plus itself is due to land as soon as next week. Blass posted renders of the device, fully revealing its design, which appears to be somewhat semitransparent, as you can see some internal hardware through the back. At the heart of the U12+ will run a Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 octa-core SoC with 6GB of RAM and 64GB or 128GB storage.

On the camera front, the smartphone comes loaded with a dual-camera setup with a combination of 12-megapixel wide-angle lens with 1.4-micron pixel size, f/1.75 aperture and a 16-megapixel telephoto lens with 1.0-micron pixel size, f/2.6 aperture.

As expected we're getting the second generation Edge Sense technology, which enables users to control the user interface with a light squeeze. Blass followed up by tweeting the HTC U12+'s spec sheet, outlining nearly every detail about the upcoming device. These support optical image stabilization, "HDR Boost 2", dual LED flash, bokeh mode, and more. The front-facing cameras will also support Face Unlock, which unlocks the phone using facial recognition. The cameras will also be able to record 240fps slow motion videos at 1080p full HD. A 3,500 mAh battery powers up the device. There will be no 3.5mm headphone port on the HTC U12 Plus, so you'll have to make do with a USB Type-C port.
