HTC also announced today the U Play, a mid-range version of the U Ultra. The sheer number of color choices is just one of the many decisions that surprises us and it's evident that the company is out to impress the younger generation by showing their sporty looks than flagship performance. The U Play also supports HTC's the Sense Companion and has the same "Liquid Surface" glass body as the U Ultra. HTC U Ultra will be available in two variants - 64 GB internal storage with Gorilla Glass 5 protection and 128 GB internal storage with Sapphire glass protection.
There are two variants of the U Play: 32GB of built-in storage with 3GB of RAM, or 64GB of built-in storage with 4GB of RAM, both of which support microSD cards for expandable storage. The phone has a 12 megapixel camera with 1.55µm pixels and f/1.8 PDAF+ Laser AF aperture. The front camera is also 16MP, with the ability to record 1080p video and a host of selfie-supporting features available to take care of it.
As for the HTC U Play, this is a smaller handset with a 5.2-inch Full HD display. The front facing camera is capable of taking wider photos and comes with a 16-megapixel sensor that has an UltraPixel mode supporting 4-megapixel captures, which sounds a little odd to say. The U Play will launch sometime in the coming weeks (or months) and the USA is not yet a confirmed market. For selfies, there is a 16-megapixel front camera with UltraPixel mode.
Instead of the Snapdragon 821 SoC, the smartphone is powered by a Helio P10 processor, with 2500mAh battery. A 2,500mAh battery is on board for all the battery requirements. The Sense Companion is "AI-enabled", which means it learns as you use it and gets better in time. And reports have come in that the HTC U Ultra has performed decently enough to heighten the expectations of all the tech enthusiasts who have been waiting for an update regarding this upcoming smartphone.

For those who don't need a secondary screen, there is another model - U Play.
The smartphone also comes with the Companion app, around which HTC has build its "U" idea.
The HTC U Ultra comes with a 3,000mAh battery, which seems a little on the low side compared to the current generation of phones. It will go on sale from March 2017. Devices like the Moto Z family and the iPhone 7/iPhone 7 Plus have also made such a move (although the latter got the most flak for the decision). These core values can be seen in every HTC device. The HTC U Play is due out on the market in spring, but pricing specifications will be announced then. The phone features a hybrid slot that can support up to 2 TB of additional storage or a secondary SIM card. Along with that with voice taking over touch, the U Ultra will have four always on microphones that will be ever ready to take the input and provide response without a delay time.
