HTC U12 Plus laid bare by huge leak

The next-gen HTC U phone follows the HTC U11.

Coming to key specifications, the front will sport a large 6-inch WQHD+ display with LCD panel. With last year's U11 being exclusively an online purchase at a somewhat steep price, we saw hardly any adoption, followed by months of sad news coming out of HTC.

HTC in recent years have made a decision to cut back on the number of devices they release, instead going for a quality of quantity approach.

While this is one of the first times we saw a design leaked for the HTC U12 Plus, we saw some specifications leaked earlier this month when the ROM developer Llabtoofer posted a complete list of specifications on Twitter. It's hard to tell from the image (included below) whether or not this new image is of the prototype or of something new entirely, but either way, we should be expecting something great from HTC. The rear camera setup will also be dual camera, 12MP and 16MP and will be located superior to the fingerprint sensor on the rear. While HTC launched both HTC u11 and U11+ in 2017, we might only see the HTC U12+ in 2018. It also features a pair of 8-megapixel selfie shooters, with a slim bezel at the top.

Nigeria maintain 52nd position on the latest Federation Internationale de Football Association ranking
The Eagles will face Poland and Serbia this month in friendly games created to prepare the them ahead of the 2018 World Cup. The Super Eagles' World Cup Group D foe, Argentina, is on the 4th place while Croatia is on 15th and Iceland on 18th.

The phone is powered by an older octa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 450 processor clocked at 1.8GHz along with 3GB of RAM and 32GB of internal storage out of which 23.5GB is available for users.

As is standard in many flagships, the phone also features IP68 water and dust resistance.

The camera modules of the upcoming flagship device could be a major highlight.

HTC's smartphone output is sure to be limited after the company sold off a good chunk of the division to Google. It will run on the latest Android 8.0 Oreo flavor out of the box.
