HTC U Ultra reaching Indian shores on February 21

After unveiling the U Ultra last month at an event held in Taiwan, HTC is all set to launch the device in India next week on 21 and has started sending press invites to the media for the same.

HTC U Ultra

The HTC U Ultra is powered by Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 821 processor which is clocked at 2.15 GHz and is paired with 4 GB RAM. It runs on HTC’s Sense UI out of the box which is based on Android 7.0. Nougat. The device boasts a 5.7-inch Quad-HD (2560 x 1440 pixels) display which is kept on by a 3000 mAh battery. It also has a secondary display which has a resolution of  160 x 1040 pixels.


Also, like Apple, HTC has ditched the 3.5 mm audio jack on the U Ultra and you now have to rely on the USB Type-C port to be able to listen to music through earphones. Talking about music, the U Ultra comes with HTC’s USonic which adjusts the sound for user’s experience for a more personalized experience. The U Ultra is priced at $749 in the US, however, there’s no information about its pricing in India.
