HTC has officially unveiled the U12 + smartphone. The new device will cost € 799 and with Edge Sense 2, among other things, a new touch function that allows users to call up a reduced screen that is easier to operate with one hand.

The HTC U12 + is, according to the manufacturer, able to determine which hand is used. Users can call a mini display by means of a double touch at the place where you normally squeeze, so that the appliance can be operated better with one hand. By default, the screen display can be reduced by tapping twice on the side with the thumb.

For example, photographs can be taken by squeezing or a voice assistant can be called. In addition, the phone has a software function that ensures that the screen orientation does not go from portrait to landscaping mode at undesirable moments. For example, at the moment that a user is in bed, this should prevent the screen from tilting. This can also prevent the screen from dimming.

The smartphone runs on a Qualcomm Snapdragon 845-soc with a memory the size of 6GB. The storage has a capacity of 64GB or 128GB, depending on the variant. The phone has a 6 “LCD with a resolution of 2880×1440 pixels and unlike many other Android smartphones of recent months, it does not have a notch on the display.

The U12 + has a dual camera at the back. The primary camera has a resolution of twelve megapixels, a sensor with 1.4 micron pixels and a lens with a diaphragm of f / 1.75. The secondary 16MP camera has a telephoto lens with an aperture of f / 2.6 that brings objects 1.85x closer. There is also a double camera on the front.

There is a fingerprint scanner on the back of the case. Audio runs via usb-c and a 3.5mm jack is missing. That connection, with support for usb 3.1, is at the bottom. The phone measures 156x74mm, is 8.7mm thick and weighs 188 grams. The device runs on Android 8.0 and has a battery with a capacity of 3500mAh. The U12 + will be released in the second half of June.
