A report from last month revealed that HTC has been working on the U12 Life which is codenamed “Imagine Life”. Now Dutch website NieuweMobiel.NL has posted the schematics of the upcoming smartphone which looks a lot like the Google Pixel devices. It will succeed the HTC U11 Life that was launched last year in November.
Like the HTC U11 Life, the successor HTC U12 Life contains no physical buttons or navigation keys. There is no notch and seems to sport an 18:9 display with top and bottom bezels. The rear of the device is an exact copy of the Google Pixel with its dual tone/material approach. There is dual camera setup stacked in a vertical arrangement on the top left accompanied by a circular fingerprint sensor in the middle.
From the earlier report, the HTC U12 Life will feature a 6 inch display with a resolution of FHD+ (2160 x 1080 pixels) and will be powered by an Qualcomm Snapdragon 636 chipset coupled with 4GB RAM and 64GB internal storage which is expandable via a microSD card. In the optics department, it will sport a dual camera setup of 16MP + 5MP configuration with support for 4K video. On the front it will offer a 13MP single camera sensor with a selfie flash.
The U12 Life will be backed by a 3,600 mAh battery and may be a part of the Android One program like the U11 Life. The version is not specified but the device may come with Android P whose final market ready version will be released on August 20. It will support Dual SIM, Bluetooth 5.0, NFC and more. The Taiwanese smartphone manufacturer is yet to give a final word about the launch, price or availability of the smartphone but we expect a Q3 2018 launch.
