HTC U Ultra, U Play unveiled
Itis big, it is shiny, and it listens to your every word. That's the HTC U Ultra in a nutshell: the company's latest high-end phone. And it wasn't alone on stage. HTC also unveiled the HTC U Play, which can be seen as the smaller, more affordable alternative to the Ultra.
HTC has unveiled two new smartphones - HTC U Ultra and HTC U Play - powered by Artificial Intelligence (AI). The new launch also marks the debut of the new HTC U series, with the HTC U Ultra and HTC U Play as the first devices. The HTC U Play and the U Ultra share some common features and functionalities, but are also different on many counts. Both the variants feature the HTC Sense Companion app, which is the company's AI assistant feature. The U Ultra is the flagship of the two with a 5.7-inch QHD LCD display and secondary ticker, along with a Snapdragon 821 processor, 12MP UltraPixel 2 rear camera, 3000mAh battery, 64GB or 128GB stor- age, 4GB RAM, and Android 7.0 with HTC Sense. The U Play is the littler guy meant for global markets, with a 5.2-inch FHD LCD display, MediaTek processor, 3GB or 4GB RAM, 32GB or 64GB storage, 16MP rear and front cameras, 2500mAh battery, and some version of Android with HTC Sense. The U Ultra can be pre-ordered for $749 at HTC.com, with orders expected to start shipping in March. The U Play’s launch is up in the air.
