For those who don't like notches on their smartphone displays, they will be happy to know that the HTC U12+ doesn't have one.

There's a dual camera (12-megapixel, 16-megapixel) and a rear-facing fingerprint sensor.

The sheet, which bares a media embargo of May 23 (the date of HTC's forthcoming event) also tells of the Snapdragon 845 processor with 6GB of RAM and unto 128GB of storage (with 2TB microSD support).

As for special features, HTC's spec sheet includes an extensive section on audio, which would be keeping with past phone releases from the company that have touted the phones' booming sound. The spec sheet promises IP68 dust and water resistance and a 3,500mAh battery. These support optical image stabilization, "HDR Boost 2", dual LED flash, bokeh mode, and more. HTC's press materials also tout phase detection coupled with laser autofocus, so expect HTC to talk about sharper photos when the U12+ is unveiled.

Around back there is a 12MP UltraPixel 4 shooter with an aperture of f/1.75 accompanied by a 16MP telephoto camera with an aperture of f/2.6. The cameras will also provide 84 degrees field of view which should allow users to take better group selfies. It has full HDR10 support so it should go quite bright. The renders for the phone show that the BoomSound implementation won't feature front-facing speakers.

As expected we're getting the second generation Edge Sense technology, which enables users to control the user interface with a light squeeze. What they did not say is whether HTC will be around long enough to implement the bans.
