HTC U12 will feature a Quad HD+ display screen with 5.9 inches in the popular 18:9 aspect ratio. 18:9 aspect ratio has become the stand feature of all the flagship which are likely to be launched in 2018 thereby leading to the sad demise of 16:9 in the flagship market. It will sport the Snapdragon 845 processor along with the 6 GB RAM and an astonishing massive storage of 256 GB. It is likely that HTC will be launching some other variants of this HTC U12 with low RAM and storage as well as screen in upcoming days.

Herein it has a 12 MP sensor along with a 16MP Sony IMX3xx sensor at the back while for selfie it has an 8MP shooter.

HTC12 users will not have to worry about the accidental drops in water as this device now comes with dust and waster resistance capability.

HTC 12 comes with Android Oreo along with the company’s very own Android skin called Sense UI 10. HTC iconic Edge sense 2.0 is also present here which allows users to perform various simple tasks based on the pressure given while gripping the phone. Following the Footsteps of Apple and varied other Android manufacturers HTC 12 will also be boasting its very Face Unlock capability. HTC is expected to launch this device in both single and dual sim versions globally.

Launching soon in April 2018

This leakster has revealed the complete specsheet on the twitter and had confirmed the launch of the device in April. Having a look at the specsheet it can be easily seen that HTC is playing safe with HTC U12 by offering the all the requisite features which has become staple in the last year. The presence of dual camera setup along with 18:9 aspect ratio is a welcome addition. The massive internal storage of 256 GB is simply too much for any user. If HTC wishes to remain competitive and get better sales traction then it has to be place the HTC U12 more competitively than past years.

Crazy about selfies? HTC Gives you a Grand Opportunity

HTC Desire Eye
The Taiwanese company HTC has now given a thought to the camera of the smartphones they are producing as because they are well aware of the craze in selfies among the public. And if you are one among them, then it is good news for you too. The Taiwanese company is trying to build the camera in a way that the pictures come out clearer almost in an HD form so that you are quite satisfied with the results. For that reason, the companies are trying to inculcate the following features in the cameras of the Smartphones.

Features that HTC is trying to fit in

  • The HTC Desire Eye has managed to bring a 13mega pixel camera and a dual LED flash above the screen where the phone’s speaker is placed. This will give the extra advantage of increased clarity so that the customers are totally satisfied with the picture quality that they are getting. It is one of the highest resolution front facing camera that has been launched so far. 
  • HTC wants to cover the differences between the front facing and the rear-facing camera so that the selfies are as clear and good as the normal other pictures are. And since people are more fond of selfies, this feature will indeed turn out to be one of the most popular of the lot. 
  • HTC has beaten others in the field as to where camera is concerned. With a front camera with strong resolution, it has almost made a great leap in the arena of technology. 
  •  This camera is fully complete with auto focus and 1080p video recording too which means that if you have a party going on at your background, you can record the whole of it without having to exclude yourself from the scene which is a pretty interesting fact as well. 
  •  The dual LED flash is the one, which is responsible for the clarity of the picture. So even if you are in a dark zone, you can always get your picture clear. And yes, the flash has been designed so that the picture appears as if taken from a normal light mode so that the picture does not carry a ghostly white appearance of you, or you do not look pale in it. 
  • The Desire Eye has truly been a smart move for all the selfie lovers and those who are not that much addictive to them will soon be obsessed with selfies if they get hold of this gadget just for once. Now it is just a matter of time to see whether the customers are really happy with this new move or not. 
  • Desire Eye is giving all these features at much cheaper rates than other smartphones. Though these specifications sound costly, yet they are not so. At least not when HTC is the launching company. Not only the price, but also the quality of the specifications is what makes this phone unique.

RE- a New Type of Camera from HTC

RE-Camera from HTC
It is not surprising if HTC is to be considered as a camera company. After the successful launching of One M8 and then Desire 816 phones that are regarded by many users as the most excellent Smartphone cameras, this company has now declared a small sized handheld camera named as the RE that contains a 16MP CMOS sensor as well as a latest HTC Desire EYE Smartphone with about 13MP front and back cameras.

The RE is, in fact, new product type for HTC with a little camera looking like smoking pipe. It has the capability to capture Full HD videos (1080p) with somewhat slow motion. This camera will possess146 degree of wide-angle lens and can be compared with the GoPro Hero 4 that has recently gain popularity in the market. The camera has also a distant viewfinder app in order thatthe user can manage it from a smart mechanism.

The design of the whole device-

The RE- a small, light weight device, has the size of 96.7 x 26.5mm and the weight of 65.5 grams. It makes it easy to firmly manage it one-handed. It is so small that the user can put it within his pocket or wallet and can take photographs or video footage at any moment whenever he wishes. Practically, the camera will be completely perfect for many types of situations. It takes images of 16MP, video of 1080p/30fps, and also time-lapse recording etc.

There are just two buttons on the device. There is one shutter button on the outer part that you press one time to take a photo and long-press for some seconds to record videotape, and the slow-motion capture toggle, which you have to press to activate before beginning the video. In case of power button it should be mentioned that HTC desires the camera to be always-on, and therefore, always prepared and waiting for you to utilize it. Sensors implanted inside the RE can inform when you grip it, so theoretically it should not take pictures while it is buried bottomless inside your pants.

You will also get a mic on top, in addition to an LED pointer and speaker under the slow-mo button. The microSD slot is placed on the bottom beneath a watertight label; the RE has an 8GB card that is preinstalled; however,you can replace it with any card with maximum 128GB. There is moreover a micro-USB charging and a quarter inch support built for a wide range of accessories.In the matter of connections, this product- RE utilizes Bluetooth LE to originally pair with your headset, but the remaining part of the process is assisted by Wi-Fi Direct -- transporting files, the distant shutter and the whole thing.

Facilities for launching the camera-

HTC selects RE for a number of motives: Primarily, through this Camera and other products, the company desires to dissociate the device so it is not linked with HTC phones, particularly since the app will be cross-platform.This company also thinks that the RE name is related with a few of the camera's qualities.

The aluminum rear is assumed to provide a better protection for the device from shocks and slight scratches. In addition, the device will sport with 8MP rear camera and 3MP front facing camera. Unfortunately, there has been no news about the presence of LED flash. The tablet will be powered by 4900mAh lithium battery, and will run on the latest Android 5.0 L (Lollipop, Lemon Cheesecake) which will enhance its performance. The device will be available in 16GB and 32GB variant without any external expansion slot.
