HTC today announced the U12 Life, a mid-range phone that offers the core characteristics of the U12+ in a less expensive form. The phone comes in two two-tone finishes, blue and purple. Each has a glossy surface on the rear surrounding the camera and a matte finish below the camera. The U12 Life boasts a 6-inch display with full HD+ resolution at the 18:9 aspect ratio. It is powered by a Snapdragon 636 processor with 4 or 6 GB of RAM and 64 or 128 GB of storage. The phone has a two-camera system on the rear. The main camera has a 16-megapixel sensor at f/2.0 with phase-detection autofocus, HDR, face detection, and two-tone LED flash. It is aided by a 5-megapixel camera for bokeh / portrait shots. The selfie camera packs a 13-megapixel sensor with beauty mode, HDR, and its own LED flash. The phone packs a 3,600mAh battery with power saving mode and a rear-mounted fingerprint reader for security. Other features include dual-band WiFi, Bluetooth 5.0, GPS, NFC, a USB-C port, and a 3.5mm headphone jack. The U12 Life ships with Android 8.1 Oreo and will be sold in select markets later this year. HTC says the phone will not be sold in the U.S.
