Leaks have become rather common in the smartphone market, so much so that some companies don’t even try to interfere. The HTC U12+ is slated for an official unveiling tomorrow. Now, the company itself might have accidentally revealed some of the handset’s upcoming features along with an image of the handset.

Instead, HTC’s upcoming flagship will feature a notchless display similar to the Infinity Display of the Galaxy S9.

Under the hood, the handset will the latest Snapdragon 845 processor bundled with 6GB of RAM and a hefty 128GB of built-in storage. Not to mention, there’s also a microSD slot which lets you expand storage to a whopping 2TB.

As far as battery goes, HTC is going for a 3500mAh battery on its upcoming flagship. Besides, the handset will get IP68 rating for both dust and water resistance, allowing it to withstand being submerged in depths of around 1.5 meters.

In terms of pricing, the HTC U12+ is expected to cost 5,888 yuan, which roughly translates to Rs 62,000. We’ll known everything about the handset tomorrow. Until then, keep check back for more updates.

HTC has been going through financial slump off late. The company has reportedly been unprofitable for 15 consecutive quarters. To counter the situation, former HTC president Chialin Chang said that the company plans to launch five to six smartphones in 2018.
