A few months back, HTC unveiled its flagship phone for 2018 in the form of the U12+. The U12+ got off to a rough start, but software updates have since made it a pretty decent handset. Now, HTC's setting its sights on the mid-range market with the all-new U12 Life.
When you first look at the U12 Life, its design sticks out as one of the most unique we've seen this year. HTC decided to go with a two-finish look, featuring "soft, subtle stripes on an acrylic glass unibody with a metal-like design." Thanks to this and the two available colors of Moonlight Blue and Twilight Purple, the U12 Life is easily one of the best-looking phones in its price range.
Around front, you'll find a 6.0-inch 18:9 display with a resolution of 1080 x 2160. The front-facing camera is 13MP with an f/2.0 aperture while the dual rear cameras consist of 16MP + 5MP sensors that allow you to capture portrait shots.
Inside of the U12 Life is a Qualcomm Snapdragon 636 processor, 4 or 6GB of RAM, 64 or 128GB of expandable storage, and a 3,600 mAh battery. The phone also has USB-C, a 3.5mm headphone jack, NFC, and Android 8.1 Oreo with HTC Sense on top of it.
HTC says pricing for the U12 Life will start at £299 in the United Kingdom. Unfortunately, there aren't any plans to bring this to North America.
