Updated 12:38 PM ET: Looks like the U12+ is doing okay, after all. In a statement sent to Android Central, HTC said: "We're aware a small number of U12+ orders were affected by a system error that made it seem like the orders were canceled. This is not the case, and we're in the process of contacting these customers to ensure they know their order will be on its way very soon. We are working directly with these customers to ensure they quickly receive and love their HTC U12+."
The HTC U12+ is an — interesting — phone. The design is striking and the cameras are top-notch, but the buggy, fake power/volume buttons create for an often frustrating experience.
Even so, that hasn't stopped a few die-hard HTC fans from picking up the phone for themselves. Some members of the AC forums reported that their pre-orders are now shipping, but for those that purchased the U12+ through Amazon, things aren't looking too hot.
Basically, people that pre-ordered a U12+ through Amazon are now being told that the phone was on backorder the whole time. So, instead of the phone shipping on June 21 like it was expected, it's now looking like shipments won't go out until August 3.
With that said, we'd love to hear from you. If you pre-ordered a U12+, what's your shipment status looking like?
