You get USB Type-C port on the bottom edge with speakers. This time HTC has skipped 3.5mm audio jack port, which needs to be there, because all audio devices like headphones, earphones comes with the 3.5mm pin, but to cover this HTC has provided a pair of earphones in its box with Type-C pin.

This display has more bezels not only at the upper portion but also at the chin of the phone, as this phone has 80.3% screen to body ratio, which is not good at that time, when you are launching your in 2018 an at such high price range. HTC U12 Plus has got the protection of Corning Gorilla Glass 3 and IP67 Water resistant technology.

Currently, this is confirmed that HTC U12 Plus will come only in single RAM variant of 6 GB with two different internal memory options of 64 and 128 GB. If you find this internal storage not enough than you can also expand its memory upto 512 GB through its hybrid card slot.
