According to retailer Mobile2Go, the HTC U12 Life with HTC Malaysia warranty is officially priced at RM1,399. As a pre-order promo, it will come with an exclusive gift box that contains a 10,000mAh powerbank, HTC Travel Kit and a lanyard.

Upfront, it has a 13MP f/2.0 selfie camera that has HDR and beautification features, while the rear gets a 16MP f/2.0 + 5MP dual-camera combo. The camera has depth of field effects and it can shoot videos in 4K. 

Powering the U12 Life is a 3,600mAh that charges via USB-C with a standard 5V 2A adapter. If you prefer to use your existing headphones, it does come with a 3.5mm headphone jack. Out of the box, it runs on Android 8.1 with HTC Sense UI skin on top.
