Listed ahead are all the methods you can utilize to take screenshots on HTC U12+. The brand has finally unveiled its 2018 flagship smartphone. Accompanied with top grade internals, the phone also features a very interesting Translucent Blue color scheme which allows you to see some of the internals through the back glass. However, with this article, we will discuss how you can do something very basic with the smartphone and that is taking a screen grab. Screenshots have been implemented on Android since the very start however, with each device, the procedure of taking one is different. For HTC U12 Plus, there are two direct methods and both have been listed ahead.

Like previous phones, HTC is sticking with its pressure sensors on the edges which allow the user to perform different tasks upon squeezing the smartphone.
