  • Possible HTC U12 sighting reported in Taiwan, mystery mid-ranger also benchmarked

The company's new rumoured flagship has been displayed at an event hosted by Chunghwa Telecom in Taiwan.

While HTC will be laying low for the upcoming MWC 2018 event, they chose to show up at the recent Taiwan 5G industry event and surprise, surprise, a wild HTC U12 appeared out of nowhere showcasing its LTE+ technology. This again points to the U12 as the company will likely to prefer opting the top-most SoC specifically for its next flagship offering. An upper mid-range U11 EYEs is already out with a large 18:9 screen and dual selfie cameras, while a smaller, significantly lower-end "Breeze" could see daylight at the Mobile World Congress later this month instead of a new U12 flagship.

Though the phone supports 5G connectivity, it isn't using actual 5G tech. The company had put up the phone to highlight the LAA (Licensed Assisted Access) implementation. This basically combines with the existing LTE with the unlicensed 5GHz WI-Fi band for additional bandwidth.

HTC evidently brought its device to the event to show off gigabit LTE speeds using what's nearly certainly Qualcomm's Snapdragon 845 chipset.

The HTC U12 is rumored to feature a Snapdragon 845 processor.

When it comes to bezel-less smartphones, one big brand that has been off the list is HTC.

That'll lead to speculation the HTC U12 will be the company's first phone to arrive boasting 5G capabilities.

The HTC U12 likely to feature a 6-inch 1440x2880p Super LCD display and equipped with 6GB of RAM.
