We're yet to learn when HTC might be planning to unveil its U12 smartphone, but it's likely to be here before the spring rolls around.
Believe it or not, a real-life HTC U12 prototype probably made its own first appearance last week, showing how it can (almost) hit 1Gbps cellular download speeds.
In terms of specs, the device boasts of a 6-inch Quad HD+ display with 1440x2560 pixels resolution with a layer of Corning Gorilla Glass 5 on top.More news: Ontario avoiding the severe flu season overwhelming parts of the US
From the photos posted on Twitter by a senior member of XDA Developers, iamaniff, the U12 appears to be sporting an 18:9 display. The smartphone is also capable of recording 4K videos.
As per a report by Taiwanese publication Sogi, HTC said that the new smartphone with fast data access would be launched sometime this year. At the moment, the mystery phone can deliver an nearly 1 Gbps download speed (809.58 Mbps).
You can see one of the handsets in the clip hits an impressive 809.58 Mbps download speed, meaning the device must be powered by a next-generation chip, presumably the Snapdragon 845 which houses a Qualcomm X20 LTE modem for download speeds up to 1.2 Gbps. However, the company hasn't disclosed the name of the upcoming handset.
