HTC is all set to unveil its new flagship smartphone titled as the HTC U Ultra. It’s no secret that the company failed to grab enough attention in the smartphone market with the HTC 10 or other flagship smartphones. Now the company is expecting to turn things around and announced two new smartphones under the HTC U series. Among these two, the HTC U Ultra will be a high-end phone. To learn more about this phone including the HTC U Ultra Dubai price and specs, continue reading.
Nowadays with all the good looking smartphones out there like the Xiaomi Mi Mix and Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge, it’s difficult to make an impression by playing safe. HTC has been following the same design for quite a while now and while things didn’t change drastically with the HTC U Ultra, it’s slightly different than the previous phones from this company. The big 5.7-inch display is protected by Corning Gorilla Glass 5 and shows 2560 x 1440 pixels resolution. Moreover, this phone includes a secondary display just like the LG V20. The secondary display is a 2.05-inch one showing 1040 x 160 pixels resolution. There are four different colors to look forward to after the HTC U Ultra release date UAE: Cosmetic Pink, Sapphire Blue, Brilliant Black and Ice White.
With phones like the iPhone 7 Plus and Google Pixel XL in the market, the competition is quite tough when it comes to choosing the best camera focused smartphone. The upcoming HTC U Ultra is expected to be at par with these phones with its 12-megapixel camera. Considering the HTC U Ultra Dubai price, it shouldn’t come as a surprise. Taking selfies won’t be a problem either as the 16-megapixel front camera allows users to switch between UltraPixel and 16-Megapixel easily. Another notable feature of this phone is the personal companion app called HTC Sense Companion. It will be interesting to see if this companion can beat Siri after the HTC U Ultra release date UAE.
One of the most annoying features of any smartphone nowadays is its small battery. It’s getting difficult day by day to pass a complete day without charging the phone and considering the specs inside the HTC U Ultra, we are not hoping for anything different. This high end phone is packing the latest Qualcomm Snapdragon 821 processor inside paired with 4GB of RAM. There are two built-in storage options to choose from: 64GB and 128GB. Powering up the device is a 3000mAh battery which can be charged quickly as users get Quick Charge 3.0 technology. Other notable features include HTC USonic, 3D Audio, NFC, USB 3.1 Type-C and most of the other necessary connectivity options.
This might turn into a major dealbreaker, HTC U Ultra’s price. As mentioned earlier it’s a high end phone and is packing the latest processor and a great camera. However, it’s still expensive compared to some of the latest flagship phones. The HTC U Ultra will cost around AED 2800 when it’s here. The HTC U Ultra release date UAE is expected sometimes in March, 2017.
