HTC U Ultra Now Available Unlocked In the US For $749

It was reported a couple of days that pre-orders for the new HTC U Ultra would begin shipping in the US on March 10. For those who had not pre-ordered the HTC U Ultra, it is now available as 'in stock' through HTC's website and is ready to ship. It will cost you $749 and it is worth remembering that the HTC U Ultra is an unlocked GSM/LTE device that will only work on AT&T or T-Mobile networks. So no compatibility for Verizon and Sprint. Those who do pick one up can choose between a Black, White, or Blue color and all purchases do come with a free pair of HTC USonic Adaptive Earphones and HTC's UH OH Protection plan.

The HTC U Ultra is a profound departure from their HTC One series and has switched out the all-metal body for one with a metal frame and glass backing that HTC is terming their Liquid Surface design, while the back has a slight curve at the edges to allow for a better grip. The HTC U Ultra sports a 5.7-inch Quad HD Super LCD 5 display and then steals a page from the LG V20 by using a smaller secondary screen for notifications and convenient access to your most-often used apps. Functioning as an ‘always-on’ style display, it should help save your battery life. There are four strategically placed omnidirectional microphones to capture incredible, life-like sound, for your video and audio recordings. HTC’s BoomSound Hi-Fi is carried over to the HTC U Ultra so whether you use earphones or not, you will be looking at a heightened listening experience.

The HTC U Ultra packs the Snapdragon 821 quad-core processor, 4GB of RAM, and 64GB of expandable storage. A 3,000 mAh non-removable battery powers the device and uses HTC’s Rapid Charger 3.0, which comes in the box. The primary camera is their 12-megapixel UltraPixel 2 design with PDAF and Laser autofocus, an aperture of f/1.8, dual-tone flash, and OIS. The front-facing camera is a 16-megapixel offering with, f/2.0, that can take a voice selfie. The HTC U Ultra comes with a front-mounted fingerprint sensor and NFC for mobile payments. Probably as to be expected, it does come running on Android 7.0 (Nougat) with HTC Sense.
