Earlier it was stated that the U12 will be presented in March this year, but it’s now not entirely clear whether HTC will keep these plans or postpone the announcement for a later date. It’s known that on March 27 its own event will be held by Huawei, which will feature P20 smartphones with a triple main camera.

Insiders say that the U12 will be equipped with a 4K-screen with minimal frames. On the back of the device there is a double main camera and, possibly, a fingerprint scanner, but the manufacturer can replace it with another biometric sensor. It’s also known that the newest Snapdragon 845 will act as the processor. U12 will be able to develop the speed of downloading data via mobile networks up to 1 Gbit/s.
