HTC is one of the companies that has not released any flagship smartphones this year. Now though, a what is supposedly a case render for the upcoming U12+ has surfaced online. According to case renders from Yahoo! Taiwan, the HTC U12+ will have four cameras. Two for the back and another two in front. A circular fingerprint sensor is also located at the back with the LED flash located atop of that. Mainly the design follows what Samsung did for its Infinity Display because the U12+ has no notch with 18:9 display ratio. If all our sources are true regarding the cameras, the rear dual cameras would be 12MP and 16MP with sensors coming from Sony. The HTC U12+ is expected to release with Android 8.0 and Sense UI 10.

The launch of the HTC U11 marked the brand’s much-anticipated return to the smartphone market here in the Philippines.

Yesterday marked a monumental day for HTC as they celebrated their comeback in the Philippine Market with a launch of four devices, including their newest flagship, the HTC U11. We got our hands on a retail version of the device, and here are our initial thoughts. Design and Build Quality The U11 feels like a very solid device in the hand. There’s no hint of it being flimsy, and you’ll immediately recognize the good build quality. It does feel a bit heavier than usual though. In terms of looks, well, I do like how the front is designed, as the 3D glass makes it look even more premium. You’ll need a microfiber cloth however, as the back is an absolute smudge magnet. Sure, that liquid glass coating does wonders of transforming incoming light, but guess what, a lot will probably use a case for it, and unless you plan on…
