With a price of $800, the phone’s not cheap by any stretch of the imagination.
On May 23, HTC properly unveiled the U12+ to the world. This is the company’s main flagship phone for 2018, and it comes equipped with a stunning design, powerful dual cameras, fast processing power, and a steep price tag of $800 with no plans to launch on U.S. carriers.

I like Apple, now Samsung and even OnePlus where they announce and thing is ready to ship within a week or two. Google is getting better with…

it’s crazy there is no set launch date. No wonder htc is in financial trouble.
Now, we’d love to hear from you! Did you pre-order the HTC U12+?
