It is no secret that the HTC U12 is the flagship device of the year for the Taiwanese company, and we have heard quite a bit about it by now. However, any official confirmation about the device is yet to be out. But, in a very interesting new report, it has now been alleged that HTC showcased the flagship smartphone during a 5G event held by a local carrier in Taiwan.

Serial tipster Evan Blass took to Twitter claiming that the model in question is apparently the HTC U12, codenamed HTC Imagine. As per a report by Taiwanese publication Sogi, HTC said that the new smartphone with fast data access would be launched sometime this year.
If the report is really true, we can confer that the HTC U12 will feature a thin-bezel display with an 18:9 aspect ratio. Previous rumours 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 matching the ongoing trend of offering facial recognition features on flagship smartphones.
While HTC did not leak a word about the handset per se, it did however mention that the particular handset is capable of delivering download speeds of 809.58 Mbps, close to 1Gbps. It appears that there is a Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 under the hood with X20 LTE modem that supports download speeds of up to 1.2Gbps.
Other than that, previous leaks also suggest that the smartphone will feature an all-glass body, and the handset s USP will remain its dual-camera setup.
