As per earlier reports, the HTC U12+ is said to feature a 5.99-inch LCD display with a 2960 x 1440p resolution. . Under the hood, the handset will be powered by Snapdragon 845 processor bundled with 6GB of RAM. Besides, leaks also indicate it will be offered in a choice of 64GB and 128GB storage variants.
The fingerprint sensor will be housed on the phone’s back. In addition, smartphone could feature stereo speakers and IP68 water-resistance rating.
