Copying a smartphone from a unique producer is so final 12 months. The most recent development, it seems, is copying two completely different smartphones and rolling that design into one.
Forward of the IFA commerce present in Berlin this week, HTC launched the U12 Life, a mid-range cellphone that appears like a cross between the Apple iPhone X and Google Pixel 2.
I imply, simply take a look at it. The vertically oriented twin digital camera with the flash within the center is a lifeless ringer for the one on the iPhone X, whereas the round fingerprint sensor mixed with a two-tone again is a particular Pixel function.
Should you disregard the similarities to different, extra well-known telephones, the HTC U12 Life does not look half unhealthy. On the entrance, although, it is only a generic Android cellphone, with fairly huge bezels (for at present’s requirements) on each prime and backside.
When it comes to specs, the HTC U12 is a 6-inch cellphone with a FHD+ (2,160×1,080 pixels) decision, a Qualcomm Snapdragon 636 processor, 4GB of RAM, 64GB of storage and a three,600 mAh battery. The twin-camera on the again is a 13/6-megapixel combo that may do bokeh photographs, and on the entrance you will discover a 13-megapixel selfie digital camera. It additionally has a three.5mm headphone jack, which is attention-grabbing as HTC’s U12+ flagship does not have one. Software program-wise, the HTC U12 Life will include Android eight.1 and HTC’s Sense UI.
The HTC U12 Life can be out there in twilight purple and moonlight blue. It will value 299 kilos ($389) when it hits Europe in September.
