The HTC U12 Plus is the latest flagship smartphone from the Taiwan-based handset maker. It includes some interesting features, such as ditching the familiar physical side buttons on most phones with Edge Sense keys that provide haptic feedback when you press on them. The phone also has dual cameras on both the front and the back, the new Edge Sense 2 for better one-handed use of the phone and some high-end hardware specs, including the Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 chip, 6GB of RAM and dual speakers with dedicated amps on each drive.
Naturally, with these features, you will want to protect the HTC U12 Plus from accidents and fall. We went searching for the best HTC U12 Plus cases and found several that you can choose from to keep your smartphone investment safe from harm.
Spigen Liquid Crystal
As always, Spigen makes some great and affordable cases for many smartphones, and the HTC U12 Plus is no exception. The Liquid Crystal case model is designed to showcase the glass back of the phone, with a clear thermoplastic polyurethane material that is easy to put on the handset. The dot pattern on the case keeps watermarks off the back, and it includes raised lips around the display and rear cameras to give them some more protection against scratches. The Spigen Liquid Crystal HTC U12 Plus case is available on Amazon for $11.99.
Spigen Rugged Armor
Here’s another great case for the HTC U12 Plus by Spigen, which offer more protection than the Liquid Crystal model. The Rugged Armor case includes the company’s Air Cushion Technology, which helps protect the phone from falls and spills. It has a matte black look with carbon fiber and gloss detailing, and it also has raised lips around the display and cameras for more protection. Even though this offers solid protection, the case is still pretty thin and lightweight so it will go on the phone quickly. The Spigen Rugged Armor HTC U12 Plus case is available on Amazon for $11.99.
