LEAKED: New HTC U12+ With Translucent Back Revealed
This week the Red Agency acting for Taiwanese phone Company HTC, threatened several media Companies in Australia with HTC oblivion, if they did not sign a none disclosure agreement saying that they would adhere to not revealing information about the struggling smartphone Companies upcoming phone ahead of the official launch.
4Square Media chose not to sign the non-disclosure agreement.
They said that those who did reveal information even through “Human error” would be excluded from future briefings and “possibly more, depending on circumstances”. What they did not say is whether HTC will be around long enough to implement the bans.
This is set to be a dual camera Quad HD+ resolution device with a screen that has a pixel density of 537pp, it will also have a 12 and 16-megapixel camera and in what appears to be an unusual move a translucent back that reveals the inner components of the device.
The front-facing camera is an 8-megapixel wide-angle sensor with a bokeh mode.
The device which has been developed by the HTC R&D team who did not defect to Google will be powered by a Snapdragon 845 processor with 6GB of RAM. The device will have 128GB of storage with 2TB microSD support.
The Taiwanese Company is sticking with their own Edge Sense technology, which enables users to control the user interface with a light squeeze, despite research showing that few people used this feature in the HTC 11.
What is neat is the inclusion of an always-on Amazon Alexa and Google Assistant support.
The OS will be Android Oreo and the device will be IP68 certified for dust and water resistance, it will have a 3,500mAh battery.
The device is expected to be announced on May 23, pricing for Australia is said to be around the $1,000 mark.
