HTC Makes One Final Attempt For Survival By Releasing The HTC U12 Life


HTC is making one last attempt for survival by unleashing the HTC U12 Life, a very pretty smartphone which comes loaded with latest features and the fact it doesn’t come with the display notch makes me fall in love with it more because it exudes uniqueness. HTC threw in everything it’s got into this product and I have every reason to believe this will be the launchpad that will propel the company into success which it desperately needs at the moment.

This pretty smartphone was released at the IFA 2018 in Berlin, Germany along with a lot of really cool tech products and it’s specs are very impressive and the U12 Life is all purple or blue eye-candy with a partial glass pane on the back that mimics the backing on Google’s flagship phone of 2017, the Pixel 2 which was released on 19th October 2017. Without wasting much time let’s look at the specs of this beauty.

HTC U12 Life display, design and software


The display on the U12 Life will sport a large 6-inch display with 18:9 screen ratio and 1,080 x 2160-pixel resolution (FHD+), Touchscreen, Multi-touch IPS LCD screen. This display is very rich and crystal clear, it is the perfect screen for watching HD movies and playing High Resolution games. In the software department, it comes with Android 8.1 Oreo which will also support upgrade to Android 9.0 Pie. The design is okay, slim bezels, rear mounted fingerprint and a glossy glass cover at the back.

HTC U12 Life camera and processor

The camera is a dual rear 16-megapixel and 5-megapixel (f2.0) with LED flash, 13-megapixel front-facing camera (f2.0) for taking lovely selfie. The processor that powers this smartphone is an Octacore Qualcomm Snapdragon 636 processor. It’s not the best processor in the world but it gets the job done.
