The first purported render of the HTC U12 has surfaced ahead of its official reveal. The device appears to sport a full-screen display similar to the iPhone X, except without the latter’s infamous notch. Expected to launch in Q1, the U12 will be HTC’s first flagship-level device released this year. It will succeed the critically well-received (but slow selling) U11 model released in early 2017.

Based on the renders, it is expected that either HTC will embed a finger-print sensor under the display, or that it will be located on the rear of the device. It will be among the first powered by the latest Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 and could also be the first phone to feature a 4K Ultra HD display. It will be missing a headphone jack, as is now the trend, but will include a USB Type-C port and IP68 classification for dust and water resistance.

HTC has been in a long-term slump and the reception of the U12 could be critical to its viability moving forward. It sold off part of its smartphone development team last year to Google for just over US$1 billion to become part of Google’s Pixel phone division. The unusual transaction left HTC in a position where it continues as a standalone company trying to make a crust in the cutthroat Android smartphone market.

I have been writing about consumer technology over the past ten years, previously with the former MacNN and Electronista, and now Notebookcheck since 2017. My first computer was an Apple ][c and this sparked a passion for Apple, but also technology in general. In the past decade, I’ve become increasingly platform agnostic and love to get my hands on and explore as much technology as I can get my hand on. Whether it is Windows, Mac, iOS, Android, Linux, Nintendo, Xbox, or PlayStation, each has plenty to offer and has given me great joy exploring them all. I was drawn to writing about tech because I love learning about the latest devices and also sharing whatever insights my experience can bring to the site and its readership.
