And it happened. We’ve awaited the launch of the HTC U12 + smartphone. The Polish presentation revealed its price and free added in pre-sale.
Here it is. The HTC U12 + smartphone has been officially presented. If a Taiwanese company counts, however, that what has been shown today will help bring it out of the crisis, I am afraid that this will not happen. The latest smartphone HTC U12 + looks interesting, has, of course, “cool guts”, but above the competition does not lean out absolutely nothing (because these squeezable frames Edge Sense is something that rather #nikogo). It will end up being bought only by hardcore brand fans and technology enthusiasts. Reason? For years, the HTC brand has been disappearing in the minds of Poles, at their own request.
Let’s start with the price, so perversely. PLN 3499 will have to be paid by the HTC brand lovers (because they will rather only use this device) for HTC U12 + in a variant with 6 GB of RAM and 64 GB of memory for data. Interestingly, the HTC Club members will pay PLN 3150 for a smartphone. The pre-sale smartphone will be offered with a “free” Kindle Paperwhite 3 e-book reader in an ad-free version, worth about PLN 500. Note: advance sale with a free gadget will start on June 4th. How do you rate this for free? Does anyone still use e-book readers? Even if you do not, the U12 + buyer will not have the slightest problem with resale for free. I do not know about you, but I would like electronics manufacturers to end up with idiotic promotions with giveaway. It’s very nice that the consumer will get a few hundred zlotys worth of bonus, but I bet everyone would prefer to cut the price of the smartphone by a few hundred zlotys. If I need a reader, I will buy a reader, and if I need a console (part of Sony), I will buy a console. Adding such expensive “giveaway” only shows how much in the recent years we overpay for smartphones.
The device uses a Super LCD screen with a diagonal of 6-inches and a resolution of 1440×2880 pixels, covered with a layer of protective glass Gorilla Glass 5. Notch is NOT . Its efficiency is provided by Snapdragon 845 and 6 GB of RAM. The smartphone offers support for two SIM cards or a SIM card and a micro SD memory card. HTC U12 + works based on Android 8.0 (why not 8.1?) And the HTC Sense overlay. It is powered by a 3500 mAh battery. So what is the HTC U12 +? I have the impression that the next generic flagship, many of them. Despite the glass backs, it does not offer support for inductive charging. There is also no 3.5 mm jack – this is “scandal” and “circus” for all dedicated fans of the brand, which has always been praised for flagships offering a great sound at the headphone output. For consolation: the housing meets the IP68 standard, which is a sign of its water resistance, and in the set are added the same as in U11 + headphones on USB Type C.
Interestingly, the HTC U12 + smartphone … does not have physical buttons. The protruding parts are really plates that respond to pressure. What else? There is face recognition, there is also a fingerprint reader on the back of the case. With the voice of the device, we will unlock only in English.
HTC U12 + is equipped with a dual main camera 12 (f / 1.75, tele) + 16 (f / 2.6, 2x zoom, OIS) megapixel. The producer does not boast about the details about him, so he probably will not lose anything and he will be just good. In the front we can find a 8 megapixel camera (f / 2.0).
Well, how do you like it?
