Most smartphone releases these days don’t really capture too much attention, outside of those from Samsung or Apple, of course. But HTC’s latest flagship device is worthy of a closer look for its solid specs and innovative pressure sensitive body.
Larger phones, although easier to read and more useful, can be cumbersome at times. HTC’s solution was to add pressure sensitive sides and buttons to its new U12+ so that you can complete certain tasks or functions quickly with just a tap or a squeeze. For example, you could squeeze it to activate Google Assistant or Alexa or use the squeeze to zoom in on a map. This functionality works with millions of apps and promises to free your hands and prevent clumsy drops when you’re on the go.
HTC’s U12+ also comes with very solid specs that put it on par with other phone makers, even those mentioned above. It boasts a 6-inch display with 537 ppi and Quad HD+ resolution, four cameras in total starting with a 12MP wide-angle and 16MP telephoto dual camera setup, a dual 8MP front camera, 6GB of RAM, 64/128GB of storage with microSD support, Bluetooth 5, USB Type-C, and a 3500mAh battery.
