HTC Mobiles has launched HTC U Ultra – their first Flagship Android smartphone in 2017. Older HTC flagships used to have unibody aluminium alloy design while the new HTC U Series phones come with All glass design. HTC has also launched a smaller, less high end variant of Ultra, called HTC U Play. Both devices will be launched in India as well – launch date to be announced.
Meet HTC U Ultra. The big screen 5.7” phone made for the brilliant U. It reflects U beautifully with its sophisticated new liquid surface. It puts U on top, courtesy of a convenient new Dual Display. It listens to U, adapting sound to your unique hearing. It even learns from U, becoming a companion that evolves to get to know you better over time.
Looking at this device’s back panel, it reminds me of earlier launched Huawei Honor 8. It’s all glass, and it reflects light in a amazingly cool way which for sure are gonna turn a lot of heads. HTC says they “developed an entirely new process where colors bond to the glass in multiple layers to reflect light beautifully – adding brilliance and depth from every angle“.
HTC U Ultra will also be available in a limited sapphire edition with 128GB storage space. Only the front panel will be sapphire, the back panel would be the same as the regular variants.
