HTC has recently unveiled a new lineup of smartphones titled as the HTC U. There are two smartphones ready to be unveiled under this new series and one of these phones is the HTC U Play. Unlike the other phone in this series, this one is a mid-range phone with decent specs and camera. To learn more about this phone and the HTC U Play Dubai price, continue reading.
For the last few years, HTC is playing safe most of the time and not bringing any major changes in design. Things are slightly different with the HTC U Ultra but the HTC U Play looks quite similar compared to the HTC 10. Users get a 5.2-inch screen showing 1920 x 1080 pixels resolution and 428ppi of pixel density. It’s 8mm thin and weighs about 145g. There are four different colors to choose from after the HTC U Play release date UAE: Sapphire Blue, Cosmetic Pink, Brilliant Black and Ice White. Surprisingly this phone will be running Android 6.0 Marshmallow out of the box while most of the phones released nowadays are packing Android Nougat. There is a new personal companion app like Siri in this one titled as HTC Sense Companion. It’s expected to learn things from you by following your daily activities and then suggest thinks accordingly.
As a mid-range phone, the HTC U Play is packing a good 16-megapixel camera on the back and another 16-megapixel camera on the front. The rear camera also includes an Optical Image Stabilizer which should make capturing videos a smooth experience. Selfie lovers should be happy as well as not a lot of smartphones these days are packing a 16-megapixel camera. Users who didn’t really like UltraPixel can now switch easily between UltraPixel and 16-megapixel selfie camera. It’s also packing the HTC USonic audio technology which is included in the high-end HTC U phone. There is the iPhone 7 Plus and Google Pixel XL if it’s the best camera focused smartphone you are after and you are not concerned about the HTC U Play Dubai price. These are already available but you have to wait for the HTC U Play release date UAE.
A major problem with most of the smartphones nowadays is its battery. Things are not looking good for the HTC U Play either as it’s packing a 2500mAh battery. Considering the phone is packing an octa-core paired with optional 3 or 4GB of RAM, it’s not too difficult to say that this battery won’t be good enough to pass users more than a day with a full charge. Other notable features include: 32/64GB built-in storage, fingerprint sensor, USB Type-C 1.0 reversible connector and NFC. There is the Asus Zenfone Max 2016 or Lenovo Vibe p1 if you want a phone with big battery.
The HTC U Play is a mid-range phone as mentioned earlier and will cost around AED 1500 when it’s here. The HTC U Play release date UAE is expected sometimes in January or February, 2017.
