Rating and Price

  • Not yet rated

The HTC U12+ was unveiled on May 23rd 2018 and was initially built for the High-end market. At publishing time, the HTC U12+ was priced at $799 USD. As such, it will compete with the best handsets available today, regardless of their prices (most likely on the subsidized market). We will update this article when we get the retail unit which will be suitable for benchmarks and final photo tests. For now, here a detailed first-impressions review of this new HTC 2018 flagship phone.

We picked a selection of competing smartphones which will serve as reference points to assess how the HTC U12+ fits in its immediate smartphone landscape: Samsung Galaxy S9+ (~720 USD), Google Pixel 2 XL (~849 USD), LG G7 ThinQ (~750 USD), Huawei P20 Pro (~920 USD). Note: at the moment, we had access to a pre-release unit. More tests will be done with the final hardware.
