    The price has leaked early https://www.theverge.com/circuitbrea...l-website-leak

    How much will that be on contact a month?
    Damn! Even as an HTC loyalist, I can't justify paying that price.

    I doubt it'll be $920.00. I'm thinking 699 or 799. Probably 799.

    It's 699 here in the UK & I'm fine with that price. Thought it would be more really.

    I hope you're right. I just returned an xz2 because the lack of VoLTE. That phone was awesome otherwise. Even with the 1080p screen. Side by side with my U11 and 10, I thought the XZ2 definitely had the superior screen. I just can't handle no VoLTE. I'm hoping this is around the same price and I'll be on it.

    Money conversion isn't like size conversions. There are always 8 ounces in a cup, but converting money works differently because different countries currency is worth different amounts compared to others at different times. There's import taxes/export taxes that are higher in some countries than others. All kinds of things to consider. The European leak showed it at 699. That even includes VAT. I'm hoping Amazon does the U12 as a Prime Exclusive phone in the US.

    I'm still looking at the XZ2 as well. I've been waiting to see what the U12 offers first though.

    I hope the screen is brighter than the "LCD 6" of the U11+. I had that phone for about 2 weeks before returning it. The screen was way dimmer than the U11 side by side and no VoLTE.

    One of the previews mentioned that the screen was bright and he had no trouble seeing it outdoors. I know it supports VoLTE, but which carriers support it is another question.

    Well if that's the case I might as well preorder as well. I wonder if they'll have any $50 off coupons sent out soon

    That’s from HTCs site regarding VoLTE. Not sure about official brightness levels.

    I'm a bit worried about how much battery will drain with an LCD screen compared to an oled screen etc. I saw a video where the guy was just keeping the screen on & bringing up the app draw & the battery seemed to go down quick so now I'm worried it's not gonna last all day especially with me being a heavy user.

    I wouldn't worry Lucy, I've got the 11+ and it sips battery. The more efficient chip should offset the smaller battery, I'd have thought. Could easily hit double figures for screen on time, if I ran battery to dead. Also get annoyed if the battery drops 3% overnight.

    Hope your right. Will see what reviews say about the battery & what to expect too.

    Don't forget, most of these hands-on videos are with earlier production models w/o the final software. I'd expect battery life to be abysmal in those situations anyway.

    oh yeah I totally forgot about that. That makes me feel better now, thanks. Still gonna wait for reviews but it does look like an awesome phone.

    Here are a couple reviews:
    https://www.androidauthority.com/htc...review-868356/
    https://www.phonearena.com/reviews/H...-Review_id4528

    I haven't read them yet, but skimmed them. They both dislike the "buttons".

    I read them and it seems like HTC really botched some of the basics, but really really excelled in the camera and audio categories. I personally think there is zero excuse for those buttons to not function as expected, likewise the battery life should fare better than what I've been seeing these reviewers achieve.

    I already knew that PhoneArena would give it a mediocre score before the review came out. I expect other sites to give a lukewarm reception to the U12+ as well.

    Here’s my issue with reviewers and the buttons. I wonder if they tried adjusting Edge Sense pressure. From an in depth hands on I saw on YouTube. The pressure for the buttons is dictated by the overall pressure for squeezes on Edge Sense. They might not be as bad with the sensitivity on a lower setting.
