HTC U12+ scores 103 in DxOMark, Just behind Huawei P20 Pro & P20.

Published

on

HTC has finally unveiled their most anticipated flagship device HTC U12+ yesterday, after all the leaks and rumours. One thing HTC stressed about the device is the camera of the phone. DxOMark, which is now considered as a benchmark for smartphone camera performance has revealed their scores.

Although as we can recall the top trending devices on the DxOMark were the Huawei P20 Pro (109) & The P20 (102) and the score that HTC U12+ achieved is sandwiched in between them and took the second place in the overall list.

So, the HTC U12+ has achieved an overall DxOMark score of 103 with 106 in the Photo segment & 95 in the Video segment.

 

Along with that DxOMark also mentioned few significant things about this device, such as the device is highly capable of very fast autofocus, good detail & texture preservation, accurate exposure & wide dynamic range while capturing photos. But, there is visible noise in low-light images.

In terms of video segment, the device does provide an effective stabilization & good dynamic range. However, in low-light, there is some loss in detail.

Of course, DxOMark isn’t everything when it comes to the camera, as we saw with the case of Huawei P20 Pro & Pixel 2 XL. Although P20 Pro trumps in low light, Pixel 2 XL is still the king in most of the camera departments. So, we’ve too how this phone fares in real world usage to know more about the camera performance of the phone!

nokia russia launch event

HMD Global has send media invites for an upcoming Nokia launch event for “new phones” in Russia. The poster reads “Dear friends, we invite you to worldwide premiere for new Nokia phones”. It mentions the date as May 29 but it the venue has been blurred out. The poster didn’t reveal the name or even hint to the smartphones that will be launched.

The event will be attended by the top management of HMD Global like CEO, CMO and CPO which revels the launch will be a pretty big ones. Also another important point that most of the 2018 Nokia smartphones are already available in Russia, including Nokia 8110 4G, Nokia 3310 4G, Nokia 1, Nokia 6 2018 and Nokia 7 Plus except the Nokia 8 Sirocco and the Nokia 8110 4G. Which means this year’s Nokia 2, 3 and 4 might be launched. HMD Global’s CEO Pekka Rentala already confirmed the existence of Nokia 2, 3 and 5 successors.

Three unknown Nokia smartphones with model number TA-1075, TA-1105 and Ta-1116 were spotted in Russian certification. The certification didn’t reveal any specs so its too early to comment about its segment. Also there was reports that Nokia 3 2018 is getting launched soon. We expect it to run a Qualcomm Snapdragon chipset this time instead of a MediaTek one. We will know soon on May 29 at 7 PM.
