The four chambers. HTC introduced flagship smartphone U12+

HTC U12 Plus colours

The handset was recently spotted on the company's official website, but only briefly as HTC realized it made a blunder and chose to take it down.

Since the device has high-end specs, you're looking for a high price tag too. The version that showed up on the official listing on HTC's website included 6GB of RAM and 128GB of onboard storage. Other specs that have been confirmed include a powerful Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 processor, a 6-inch Super LCD6 display with WQHD+ (1440 x 2880 pixels) resolution (no notch) and a dual-camera setup.

HTC mistakenly leaked some specifications and features of its new U12 Plus, ahead of its launch on May 23.

Those cameras have scored pretty well with camera testing firm DxOMark, earning a score of 103. This changes today as the HTC U12+ makes its first appearance on GeekBench. Then there is the squeeze feature from past year that lets the user launch voice assistant, Edge Launcher, and more. Camera improvements do not end here – the selfie camera is also a dual shooter with two 8 MP sensors. The smartphone comes with the price tag of £700/€799 in Europe for the 64GB storage variant and $799/ $849 in the U.S. for the 64GB and 128GB storage variants respectively. This dual camera system will be aided by HTC's UltraPixel 4 technology and UltraSpeed Autofocus 2 (laser autofocus+phase detection), OIS and dual LED flash. One new feature is that the U12+ can now record videos in 4K at 60 fps, and thanks to optical image stabilization, videos should look smooth. Android 8.0 Oreo runs out of the box with the HTC Sense skin on top. The front camera can shoot 1080p videos.

As for the battery, that's been seemingly given a boost on the HTC U12 Plus, as the new phone has a 3,500mAh one, while the HTC U11 has a much smaller 3,000mAh one. It is a disappointment that there is no Wireless charging.

French Open organizers won’t give Serena Williams a seeding
Williams received a wild card entry for her return at the BNP Paribas Open in Indian Wells, California, in March. Even longtime rival Maria Sharapova said last week at the Italian Open that she'd like to see the rules change.

HTC devices feature some seriously good Audio features, and the U12+ is no exception. On the connectivity front, there is 4G VoLTE, Wi-Fi 802.11ac, Bluetooth v5.0, GPS/ A-GPS, USB Type-C, and NFC. It comes in Titanium Black, Flame Red, and Translucent Blue colour options. 18 Gigabit LTE, download up to 1.2 Gbps, upload up to 150 Mbps etc.

Pre-orders are available for Translucent Blue and Ceramic Black from HTC.com and HTC Club members can get 10% off.

That'll be US$799 for the 64GB model, and US$849 for the 128GB version.

We'll let you know how well the HTC U12 Plus's perform when we've fully put them to the test, but we quite liked the HTC U11's in our review, though noted that it was easy to accidentally cover them.
