The HTC U11 is a great telephone, however it is getting dated due to its 16:nine show ratio, massive bezels, navigation keys, and odd-looking fingerprint sensor. Fortuitously, HTC appears to be sorting all that with the U12, which was once it sounds as if displayed at a 5G trade match with just a little of covering-up.
It appears this evenly obfuscated handset on show at a 5G trade match is none rather than HTC Believe, aka “U12,” aka the corporate’s subsequent flagship. https://t.co/f89KjGjEyX

The U11’s successor, more likely to be named ‘U12’ and codenamed ‘Believe,’ was once it sounds as if the check mattress for 5G connectivity for this match in Taiwan. Even if the highest bezel and higher again had been blocked out, there are nonetheless some issues we will be able to glean from the pictures. As an example, there can be on-screen navigation keys and what seems to be an 18:nine show, although the corners are not rounded like maximum 18:nine displays. The on-screen keys may have further slots for different purposes, must you select so as to add them. All this appears rather very similar to the U11+, which is not essentially a foul factor.
It is tough to get a way of dimension, however the telephone turns out find it irresistible’s at the better aspect. The bezels have shrunken, and there will most likely be a rear-mounted fingerprint sensor like fresh HTC releases. We’ve not written about any U12 leaks, however we have now heard rumors of a 6.zero” 1440p show, a Snapdragon 845, and 6GB of RAM floating round.
The U11 was once launched in Would possibly of 2017, so we would be expecting the U12 to be formally unveiled in 3 months or so. For now, we will be able to simply appreciate the obtain speeds that those pre-production units are reaching.
