Alleged images of HTC's unannounced U12 surface showing off slim bezels

HTC U12 With 5G Support Allegedly Previewed in Taiwan

Possible HTC U12 sighting reported in Taiwan, mystery mid-ranger also benchmarked

The logo for Taiwan's leading smartphone maker HTC (L) is pictured above a busy street in Taipei on July 20, 2012.

HTC revealed earlier today that the U11 can now be purchased with a $100 discount and the promotion will last until February 15.

From these photos, we can take away that this reported U12 has on-screen buttons, a healthy amount of top and bottom bezel, and at one point somewhere in the world it had access to a download speed of 809Mbps and almost 50Mbps up.

The HTC U12, the maker's next flagship, has just surfaced at a Taiwan 5G industry event showing off its LTE+ prowess.

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. The edges of front looked curved but it isn't clear if it's curved on the glass or with the display.

Previous rumors suggested that the smartphone would sport a 4K display. At the 5G event, the handset was spotted producing download speeds of 809.58.

As per Taiwanese publication Sogi, HTC said the new flagship phone will be announced sometime this year.

The event which also saw participation from Ericsson and Nokia witnessed unveiling of devices such as Vive PRO, Vive Focus along with unlisted virtual reality devices and other HTC phones. 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.

The Taiwanese company is probably hoping to capture the Android smartphone scene once again with their latest upcoming smartphone the HTC U12.
