Bigger is better with HTC’s U Ultra

HTC’s latest series of smartphones are all about U

In a move meant to differentiate itself from predecessors, the U Ultra marks a big change in the way the manufacturer makes its kit. Instead of sticking with the metal unibody design we’ve seen from the HTC One (M7) onwards, the Ultra introduces a stunning all-glass make up and centres around HTC’s new artificially intelligent Sense Companion.

The phone runs Android Nougat out of the box. As far as the processor goes, it’s a Qualcomm Snapdragon 821, 64-bit, quad-core, up to 2.15GHz.

The HTC U Ultra gives you 64GB, 4GB RAM, expandable storage space via microSD up to 2TB. It boasts of a 3000 mAh battery and talktime of up to 26 hours. Its quick charging feature means you won’t ever be without juice.

Its rear-snapper features a 12-megapixel sensor with optical image stabilisation, laser autofocusing and a f/1.8 aperture. So, you can expect decent photos in pretty much any conditions. As for its front-facing camera, this phone has a 16MP selfie snapper, which means no more grainy Snapchats.  

The HTC U Ultra will be priced at ₹59,990 for 64GB and will be available in India from March 16, 2017 onwards.
