HTC has unveiled the HTC U12+ that sports a 6” display with cinematic 18:9 widescreen, yet it is also easier to use with Edge Sense 2 for intuitive one-handed interaction for snapping photos, calling up voice assistants, or virtually anything you may want to do. The HTC U12+ will be available in Translucent Blue, Ceramic Black, and Flame Red beginning June 12th in the UAE at select retail outlets at the recommended retail price of AED3,449.
Features of the HTC U12+ include Edge Sense 2 that senses which hand you are using, giving you one-handed freedom to double tap to navigate the device, hold to lock the screen orientation, or squeeze the sides for taking photos and videos, zooming in on maps, and virtually any interaction.
Two cameras on the front and back deliver photos with DSLR-like bokeh. UltraSpeed Autofocus 2 includes full sensor phase detection autofocus and new laser autofocus to ensure you never miss your shot, while HDR Boost 2 lets you take fantastic photos in any lighting condition. The main camera’s 2x optical zoom and 10x digital zoom for photos means you are always ready for a close-up, while video with Sonic Zoom lets you “zoom in” on a sound or voice so you are truly the director of the scene. And with one-touch auto zoom, it’s almost like you have Hollywood in your pocket. It’s so good, the U12+ received a DxOMark score of 103 – the highest rated camera in the industry for a dual camera smartphone.
With its BoomSound speakers and USonic earbuds featuring Active Noise Cancellation the U12+ keeps out unwanted distractions. Equipped with the Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 Mobile Platform with X20 LTE that will extend the way people see, hear, and interact with the world around them. With 6GB RAM standard and up to 128GB storage, the U12+ shatters expectations of the power and performance you can expect from your phone. The U12+ is also VR ready for the Vive Focus (where available) with phone call and notification sync, plus mirror mode to turn your smartphone into your own personal VR theater.
