The £699 quad-camera handset, which started shipping earlier this month, was previously only available in translucent blue and ceramic black in the UK.
However, it it tickles your fancy, we’re afraid you’re going to have to be patient. HTC says it’s currently “available on backorder”, and will only start shipping in August, “once the stock arrives to the UK”.
You can currently only purchase it through HTC.com, but it will also be available from Argos, Amazon, Shop Direct and AO.com “in the next few weeks”.
It’s safe to say the HTC U12 Plus doesn’t quite belong in the top bracket of 2018 flagship smartphones, scoring a disappointing six out of 10 in our review. Here’s the verdict of Max Parker, our phones and tablets editor:
“It’s a shame then that HTC falls down when it comes to execution. The haptic buttons, for example, are really a pain to use and Edge Sense doesn’t work as you’d expect 100% of the time. Add to this the disappointing battery life, a version of Android that lacks the polish of the competition, and no wireless charging.
