HTC U12+ will be the only 2018 flagship of the Taiwanese manufacturer, according to a recent rumor that also referred to a lower-end version of the flagship, identified as HTC U12 Life. A very little information is available on this new device, except for the positioning, Evan Blass has just arrived with a small but significant detail.
The HTC U12 Life will follow the increasingly widespread Notch display market trend, which became very popular after Apple chose to adopt it on iPhone X. The source simply emphasizes: “If you thought that HTC was sidestepping the notch trend…think again. Apparently, midrange U12 Life gets its notch on.”

The notch was absent in the first alleged renders of the HTC U12+, but the company could choose to insert the debated element in the lower-end variant. All that remains is to wait for the next rumors about it; it is reasonable to suppose that Evan already has a render of this device that could soon be shared on the network.
