HTC may completely skip the U12 launch and release the U12+ flagship smartphone in mid Q2 this year. As a competitor for Samsung's Galaxy S9+, the U12+ comes with a WQHD+ LCD screen, top of the line Snapdragon 845 SoC, 6 GB RAM, 64/128 GB storage, plus dual front/back cams.

2017 was a rather problematic year for HTC. The company faced an acute financial crisis and had to sell part of its smartphone business to Google. Meanwhile, HTC went through a few rounds of layoffs in order to remain profitable, but the Taiwanese smartphone-maker is still on track to release several models this year. According to Evan Blass via VentureBeat, a person familiar with HTC’s plans was able to inform him about HTC’s flagship U12+, leaking some new specs in the process.

The "+" in HTC’s upcoming flagship name is supposed to signal that it will be released as a competitor to Samsung’s Galaxy S9+. The bezel-less 6-inch 2960x1440 LCD display that is rumored to come with the U12+ is slightly subpar compared the 6.2-inch AMOLED display featured with the Galaxy S9+, however, all the other specs are clearly high-end. Thus, the U12+ is supposed to be powered by Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 845 SoC coupled with 6 GB of RAM. There are 64 GB and 128 GB storage versions and the 3,420 mAh battery is coherent with all the other high-end models on the market right now.

As far as the camera setup is concerned, the U12+ includes a dual 8 MP selfie cam on the front, while the back features a 16 MP cam and 12 MP one. The rear side also features a LED Flash and the fingerprint sensor. With the U12+, HTC will upgrade the Edge Sense hardware introduced last year to version 2, extending the number of functions that can be controlled through physically squeezing the sides of the phone.

Due to its ongoing financial hardships, HTC will most likely skip the U12 model and release the U12+ flagship codenamed Imagine some time in May.
