HTC U Ul­tra, U Play un­veiled

The DQWeek (Kolkata) - - CHANNEL BONANZA - DQW NEWS BUREAU New Delhi

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, with or­ders ex­pected to start ship­ping in March. The U Play’s launch is up in the air.
