That doesn't sound particularly exciting, we would say, and definitely doesn't offer the hype one would expect for a flagship.

Interestingly, it is also possible that HTC may launch the U12 variant as well.

If you've been waiting for the launch of the follow up to the HTC U11, then set your calendar for May 23rd with HTC launching a teaser for an event on social media. The device will sport top of the line hardware to give a tough rivalry to the Galaxy S9-series and the OnePlus 6. The device will be powered by the latest Snapdragon 845 chipset with up to 8GB of RAM and 128GB of onboard storage.

Google Assistant now works with 5000 devices, will add even more soon
The new, simplified voice commands will let you go directly to your favorite channels, control volume, or pause a show. Google Assistant is also compatible with over one million "actions", which are things that it can do.

It is unknown what will happen to HTC's effort in the handset market once the launch of the U12 comes around, as this project is assumed to be the completion of a design that has been in the works for years rather than a brand new model. In terms of camera, the phone is likely to feature a dual rear camera setup (16MP and 12MP camera) which is said to be place above the LED flash and a fingerprint sensor. If rumours are anything to be believed, the U12 Plus will equip a 6-inch QuadHD+ LCD display both a resolution of 2960 x 1440 pixels.

The phone will be available with up to 256GB of internal storage, and there will be a microSD card slot for storage expansion. The smartphone might have a 3420 mAh Li-ion battery and run Android 8 Oreo out of the box. HTC will add some other features to make the device stand out from the crowd, unlike LG which released the least exciting G7 ThinQ.
