There are now four cameras - two on the front, two on the back - for more effective portrait modes and, with the rear shooters, a 2x optical zoom.

The HTC U12 Plus has more visually in common with the HTC U11 Plus than the standard HTC U11, but that's perhaps no surprise.

HTC says that a new touch feedback experience turns the edges of U12+ into the easiest and most intuitive way to interact with your phone.

One interesting quirk of the HTC U12+ is that it doesn't feature any physical buttons.

Most importantly, the HTC U12+ should run as smoothly as any other Android phone that launches in 2018.

You can also double-tap the left and right edges of the U12 Plus to shrink the screen down for one-hand mode. HTC introduced something new this time - Pressure Sensitive Buttons on the side.

A subsequent listing on HTC's webstore also revealed there will be a model with 6GB of RAM and 128GB of onboard storage priced at 5,888 yuan (around $920 in U.S. currency). 9 x 8.7-9.7mm, so it's barely any bigger than the 153.9 x 75.9 x 7.9mm HTC U11, despite having a much bigger screen (which we'll cover below). Just squeeze the side face to take a picture, cause the panel Edge or to activate the voice assistant. You can get carrier-specific units in 64 GB form, or fully unlocked versions - compatible with all three networks - in 64 GB or 128 GB form. Look for the phone to debut with Android 8.0 Oreo out of the box. The backside of the phone has a horizontal dual camera setup and a fingerprint scanner.

The rear camera setup can shoot up to 4K videos at 60 FPS and 1080p slow motion videos at 240 FPS.

But as well as an extra lens on the back, the HTC U12 Plus also has an extra lens on the front, with an f/2.0 aperture. In terms of photo quality, DxOMark said the HTC U12+ offered very fast and accurate autofocus; pleasant colour and accurate white balance; accurate exposure and wide dynamic range; good detail and texture preservation, as well as natural and attractive Bokeh simulation. The U12 Plus's product listing also revealed that the phone will feature HTC's proprietary BoomSound speakers and will also have an IP68 rating for dust and water resistance. If you're looking for wireless charging, for instance, that's still missing. 18 Gigabit LTE, download up to 1.2 Gbps, upload up to 150 Mbps etc. Talking about the pricing, the 64GB variant is priced at $799 while the 128GB variant is priced at $849.

Pre-orders are available for Translucent Blue and Ceramic Black from HTC.com and HTC Club members can get 10% off. The phone will be available in both Translucent Blue and Ceramic Black colors to begin, but Flame Red will eventually come to market as well.

We'll let you know how long the U12 Plus's battery lasts when we've reviewed it, but the U11 for its part lasts around a day of moderate use.
