In January, Google also paid the firm more than one billion dollars to acquire HTC’s smartphone design division, which included more than 2,000 engineers. The U12+ is the first device the company has released since that restructure.

The new phone also contains the latest top-of-the-line Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 processor and run the latest version of the Android operating system – 8.0 Oreo.

In terms of the phone’s design, one eye-catching version of the U12+ also features a translucent rear case, allowing users to see some of the phone’s internal components.

However the new device will join a crowded premium smartphone market, with Samsung, LG, Sony, Huawei and OnePlus having all launched new flagship smartphones so far in 2018.
