Design and Display

Glass is the way to go for premium smartphones in this era and the HTC U12 Plus also joins in the parade with a nice 3D glass build. HTC has always been known for its exquisitely designed smartphones and this one is not different.

Like some of the flagship on ground, the HTC U12 Plus does not come with an audio jack port and has minimal bezels. There are 3, colour options, a translucent blue which is very nice, flame red styling and a ceramic black option.

Visuals are quite impressive on the HTC U12 Plus with a Super LCD screen and has a fairly large size. However an OLED display would have been a better option, although, this appears crisp enough for a flagship smartphone accompanied by high pixel density of about 537 ppi.

It is also large enough to enjoy watching movies amongst other things going up to 6.0-inch and a 2880 X 1440 pixels resolution.

On the flip side, the HTC U12 Plus does not come with Qi wireless charging like some other flagships.

On the selfie side, there are two 8MP camera which is probably why there’s no notch on the smartphone. You also have a special feature called sonic zoom which focuses the audio when you zoom in on a subject during video recording.

Hardware and Software

Everything is quite impressive in the hardware section of the HTC U12 Plus had it has the latest chipset from tech giant Qualcomm. In light of this, Octa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 processor and an Adreno 630 GPU.
