HTC U12 Life Android smartphone was announced in August 2018. It features a 6-inch display, Snapdragon 636 chipset, 4 RAM, 64 GB internal storage, rear dual camera with 16 MP + 5 MP lenses, 13 MP front camera, and 3600 mAh battery.
The U12 Life has a striking resemblance to the Google Pixel 2. Unlike the Pixel 2, it has a dual camera at the back that is listed as offering Bokeh effects in photos, as well as 4K video recording.
HTC has not included the gimmicky squeezable side and static “buttons” that have been featured on some other recent models. The HTC U12 Life is a fairly conservative mid-range smartphone, though its acrylic glass unibody is not common among its peers.
