The new successor of the last year U11+ brings along many changes, the most prominent is the addition of dual front and rear camera and the inclusion of Qualcomm most powerful Snapdragon chipset.

An octa-core Snapdragon 845 chipset powered the hardware while Android 8.0 Oreo govern the software with Android P upgrade tagged along. The RAM and storage configuration is 6GB/64GB, but there is an option of 128GB storage if you want more, though the RAM capacity is still restricted to 6GB.

In photography, the HTC U12+ as mentioned earlier sports 12MP+16MP dual rear-facing camera with Optical Image Stabilization, 2x Optical Zoom, and 4K video recording at @60fps supports, while 8MP+8MP dual camera with real-time bokeh effects and AR stickers is pinned to the front.

Other notable features included are HTC EdgeSense2, IP68 water and dust resistant, fingerprint sensor, four mics with noise cancellation and 3D audio recording, and HTC BoomSound HiFi edition. It is powered by a 3500mAh battery.
