HTC U12 Plus Comes With Pressure-sensitive Buttons and Dual Front Cameras for $799

HTC's newest flagship, the HTC U12+, has been officially announced, coming with a 6-inch Quad HD+ (2880 x 1440) Super LCD 6 display and pressure-sensing buttons.

HTC latest handset is powered by a Snapdragon 845 SoC, has 6GB of RAM, 64 or 128GB of storage, Android 8.0, and a 3500mAh battery. The six-inch 2880x1440 LCD display has an 18:9 aspect ratio, and the phone skips out on the notch trend. You also get a MicroSD slot, stereo "boom sound" speakers, and IP68 water resistance, but no headphone jack.

There are also two front-facing 8MP cameras now, so you can do selfie-portraits. The back features a fingerprint reader and dual cameras. You also get a 12MP main camera and a 16MP sensor with a 2x optical zoom.

In terms of design, the phone's back is glass, so you have the downside of the device being a fragile fingerprint magnet.

Continuing the pressure sensing elements that started with last year's HTC U11 "active edge," the new device has now volume and power buttons that are totally solid and part of the phone shell. Depending on the pressure you apply, the phone is sensing when you want to activate them.

HTC's squeezy sides have been upgraded from "Active Edge" to "Active Edge 2," and now the phone can tell when it is being held in addition to being squeezed. A squeeze will still launch a shortcut like the Google Assistant, Amazon Alexa, or whatever you program it to do. When holding the phone one-handed, you can now tap on the side twice with your thumb, which will shrink the screen down into one-handed mode. The screen will shrink toward the side of the phone you tapped on, enabling an easy left- or right-handed one-handed mode.

The touch-sensitive sides can be also used to help with auto rotate: if you are touching the left and right side, the phone won't switch to landscape, no matter the orientation. If the phone is sideways and you let go of the sides-like say when holding the top and bottom of the phone for landscape-then it will rotate.

In the US, the HTC U12+ will support AT&T, T-Mobile, and Verizon. It will also be sold unlocked on and Amazon, with pre-orders starting 5/23. The 64GB version is $799 USD, while the 128GB version will run you $849.
