HTC had launched the HTC U11 in May 2017 and an upgraded U11+ with full screen design was made official by the end of the year. Recent reports have revealed that the Taiwanese company will be skipping the U12 moniker and its first flagship phone for 2018 will be launching as U12+. Fresh information coming from Taiwan claims that the U12+ will be available for buying in the country by the end of May or early June.
The HTC U12+ is expected to feature a full screen design and a 6-inch display. It is expected to be available in 64 GB and 128 GB storage choices. The flagship phone will be fueled by Snapdragon 845 chipset. Since the smartphone is expected to be available for buying the end of the coming month, it is speculated that it may get unveiled by the middle of the coming month. The 128 GB HTC U12+ is expected to be priced at NT$24,990 (`$846).
Taiwan will be also receiving mid-range Desire 12 and Desire 12+ smartphones in the coming month. As far as the U12+ is concerned, it is expected to receive lukewarm response as the Galaxy S9 and Xperia XZ2 have been available in the market since quite some time. Also, the Huawei P20 series have also hit the market recently. Hence, it is difficult to say that the U12+ will be able to attract the market.
