The U11’s successor, likely to be named HTC U12 and codenamed ‘Imagine,’ was apparently the test bed for 5G connectivity for this event in Taiwan.

However, tipster Evan Blass through his Twitter account, @evleaks, states that the model in question is apparently the HTC U12, codenamed HTC Imagine. If we look at the images provided from the event, the alleged HTC U12 could sport a thin-bezel display with an 18:9 aspect ratio. Earlier rumors have suggested the smartphone will have a 4K display, and a recent render suggested that there might be an iris scanner on the front, instead of a fingerprint sensor.

 

The ability to reach those speeds we think that, It’d need the new Snapdragon 845 platform, which features a new Qualcomm X20 modem that’s capable of reaching theoretical speeds of 1.2Gbps.

The U11 was released in May of 2017, so we’d expect the U12 to be officially unveiled in three months or so. For now, we can just admire the download speeds that these pre-production devices are achieving.

Do you think the HTC U12 can challenge the Galaxy S9 and 2018’s other big hitters? Drop us a line @techminions3 on Twitter.
