HTC previously said that it would return to making dual rear cameras in 2018, and now we’re getting some information regarding the route. LlabTooFer, generally the accurate source for HTC-related leaks, posted what they claim to be specs for the Imagine (aka U12) and its centerpiece would have dual rear amateur system with 12- and 16-megapixel sensors.
At this time, we don’t know how the dual-camera system would work, but the size different means to allow cropping for portrait or zoom modes without losing picture details. It’s also worth mentioning that the device won’t leak on this feature alone.
In addition to the dual-camera system, the Imagine/U12 would boast an “HTC Face Unlock” feature, the Snapdragon 845 chip, a 6-inch QHD+ screen, up to 6GB of RAM, 256GB internal storage, 3,420mAh battery and IP68-level water resistance. In addition, the Edge Sense 2.0 would help evolve HTC’s squeeze-based control. All of this is nothing without good software updates. HTC is reportedly planning to make full use of Google’s Project Treble to quickly deliver software updates to the phone owners.
LlabTooFer claims that the handset will likely launch sometime in April. Perhaps you’ve already seen it too. HTC showed off an unnamed tall-screened phone at 5G event weeks ago (take a look at the image above). Now the question remains as to where the device will launch. Previously, Spring has scored US carrier exclusive for the U11 as well as the unlocked model, but there’s no guarantee you will see HTC go the same route again.
