#IFA18 – After hearing about the phone via rumors for the past few months, it looks like at IFA 2018 HTC has finally made the HTC U12 Life official. As per the rumors, the handset has been designed to be a mid-ranger, but that’s not a bad thing for those who are shopping with a smaller budget or who don’t really care so much about having the most powerful smartphone.

In terms of specs, the HTC U12 Life will come with a 6-inch 18:9 FHD+ display. Under the hood, a Qualcomm Snapdragon 636 chipset can be found where it will be accompanied by either 4GB or 6GB of RAM, depending on the region. There will also be 64GB or 128GB of storage that can be further expanded via microSD cards.

Despite how the phone has been designed to be a mid-ranger, HTC has given it a dual camera setup which tends to be mostly reserved for high-end flagships. We’re looking at a 16MP + 5MP dual camera setup with phase-detection autofocus, dual LED flash, and support for 4K video recording. There will also be a 13MP front-facing camera with BSI, LED flash, and a “beauty mode” which is clearly designed for selfies in mind.

The phone will also pack a fingerprint sensor, a USB-C port for charging, a 3.5mm headphone jack, and a 3,600mAh battery. It will also run on Android 8.1 Oreo. Pricing was not mentioned but given its specs it probably won’t end up costing you an arm and a leg.
