HTC has finally unveiled its new device, the U12+. The flagship sports a 6-inch QHD+ Super LCD display, a Snapdragon 845, IP68 certification, a quad camera setup, and a host of other features that make it one of the most impressive devices so far this year—on paper at least.

HTC has finally unveiled its latest flagship, the U12+. The device has been in the news for a while now, and its specifications sheet even surfaced a few days ago, so there isn't much we don't know about it. Official confirmation is always nice, though.

And for a quick rundown of the U12+:

  • 6-inch QHD+ display, Corning Gorilla Glass 5, HDR10 support
  • Snapdragon 845
  • 6 GB of RAM, 64 GB of storage
  • 12MP wide-angle lens (f/1.75 aperture), 16MP telephoto lens ( f/2.6 aperture), Optical Image Stabilization, Electronic Image Stabilization, dual LED flash
  • 8 MP + 8 MP dual selfie cameras, 84° field of view
  • 3500 mAh battery, USB Type-C 3.1, Quick Charge 3.0
  • IP68 rating
  • Rear fingerprint sensor, NFC, Bluetooth 5.0
  • 4K 60FPS recording, 24-bit 96 KHz audio recording
  • Android 8.0 Oreo

Surprisingly, there's no wireless charging present, neither is there a 3.5 mm headphone jack. The U12+ is said to be HTC's only flagship this year—the company released three in 2017—and looks excellent on paper. Of course, pricing details of the U12+ are still unconfirmed, and that, perhaps more than any other factor, will determine how successful the device is. 

Just yesterday a semi-official leak revealed that the device would be sold with a hefty US$900 price tag in China. In the UK, however, it comes with a £699 tag, and that could very well translate directly into the US MSRP, due to the nature of UK VAT.
