HTC U12 shows up at a 5G event in Taiwan


The 845, which has yet to release in a commercial handset, is capable of attaining near gigabit speeds in real-world conditions and up to 1.2Gbps theoretical speeds.

Another report in Taiwan-based Sogi website said this particular mobile can deliver download speeds of 809.58 Mbps, which is close to 1Gbps. Even the smartphone was kept on display for viewing, the company had covered its top and bottom portions.

HTC used to be a dominant force in the smartphone industry but relinquished its title to Samsung some years back. We weren't expecting much from HTC though, with its next flagship - the HTC U12 - rumoured to be launched further down the line.

According to The Verge, the device was shown at an event hosted by Chunghwa Telecom, Taiwan's largest telecom company, which invited companies like Nokia and Asus that have also signed on to help build a 5G network on the island by 2020. This device is a smaller 5.5-inch budget device. But besides that, it's very obvious that the flagship will have an 18:9 screen-to-body ratio as seen in the cover image, the bezels at the sides are quite minimal as well and look quite curvy than its predecessor.

He also says that it will sport MediaTek processing, 2GB of RAM and come with 16GB of on-board storage.

It's only February and we now know a little more about three of the six HTC smartphones the company has promised for 2018.
