HTC made major advancements early in the year as it surprised customers with twin smartphones at the CES 2017, the U Ultra and the U-Play devices which were described as teen phones based on their highly customizable features.
However, following the release, the Taiwanese tech company revealed it would be making a more premium version of the U Ultra with sapphire later in the year which tech enthusiasts booked for later in the year but surprisingly, call for pre-orders came weeks after the announcement of the device.
In another surprising move, the unlocked U Ultra has made its way into the markets of the United state, and it is as expected to cause a frenzy.
The HTC U Ultra which goes for $749 is available in color variants including the Sapphire Blue, Ice White, and Brilliant Black.
HTC is, however, offering a sweet deal for 25 percent off the device’s select accessories to go along with its purchase which means you get a percentage chipped off. The unlocked U Ultra is, however, compatible with a range of service providers.
As a means of quick recap in case you’re lost on what the HTV U Ultra brings to market, the device which was unveiled at the CES 2017 comes to market with a 5.7-inh QHD display along with the fast Qualcomm Snapdragon 821 Soc layered under the hood. Along with these features, the HTC U Ultra comes packing 4GB of RAM along with an internal storage memory of 32 or 64 GigaByte variants.
On the camera front, the HTC U Ultra comes to market with 16MP of UltraPixel front facing the camera while on the rear panel it comes sporting a dual-12MP UltraPixel powered by a 3,000mAh battery fitted with the Quick Charge 3.0 and rolls out with the latest Android OS 7.0 Nougat with the HTC Sense UI.
It is, however, important to note that the Unlocked version of the HTC U Ultra will only support GSM networks which include AT&T or T-Mobile. The 128GB variant of the device was also not listed as available by the tech company which means it might be shipping at a later date.
