HTC Explains Why U12 Plus Lacks Wireless Charging

7 monthes ago   |   By Android Headlines

HTC's newest smartphone, the U12 Plus , does not support wireless charging. For those that might have started following the company in the past few years, that may not be surprising. But HTC was one of the first manufacturers to adopt wireless charging, many years ago. In fact, the HTC Droid DNA it did for Verizon had wireless charging. So why not add wireless charging to the U12 Plus? It does have a glass back after all. HTC clarified the matter to AndroidHeadlines, providing what's essentially the same explanation other manufacturers previously used when omitting the said feature.

HTC Explains Naming Scheme Behind The “U12 Plus” Moniker

7 monthes ago   |   By Android Headlines

HTC's newest smartphone is the U12 Plus , which is a bit weird because there is no regular U12 in this lineup. It's just one smartphone even though typically the “plus” in a smartphone name indicates a larger version of any given flagship. But that's not the case here. When asked about it, HTC stated that this was something that the company tossed around internally and finally decided to go with the U12 Plus naming because it made sense, based on the specs and the size of the U12 Plus. Its specs are right inline with something like the Galaxy S9 Plus, and its size is a bit smaller than...

Hands On With The HTC U12 Plus Android Flagship

Hands On With The HTC U12 Plus Android Flagship

7 monthes ago   |   By Android Headlines

HTC has finally taken the wraps off of the U12 Plus smartphone, its one and only flagship for 2018. It actually retains quite a few features from the U11 that the company announced in 2017, but improves on them all. First of all, it does have a slightly larger display, coming in at 6-inches. HTC has upgraded the internals as well, so it has all of the usual specs you'd find in 2018. Like a Snapdragon 845 chipset, 6GB of RAM and either 64GB or 128GB of storage on board. On paper, it's a smartphone that really should sell well, but as always, the specs aren't the entire story.
The display on...

HTC just announced its latest flagship smartphone, the U12 Plus, and it is now available for pre-order from HTC.com. The HTC U12 Plus starts at $799 for the 64GB model and $849 for the 128GB model, so it's definitely not a cheap device, but it does have all of the bells and whistles you'd expect in 2018. HTC's website does offer financing options if you don't want to spend that much on a smartphone today. Everyone gets zero-percent APR financing from HTC, which makes the device $34 per month for 24 months and $0 down. That's a pretty good way to pay for the U12 Plus. The HTC U12 Plus will...
