Presented smartphone HTC U Ultra, equipped with dual screen Companion AI Sense and devoid of the 3.5 mm audio connector
An hour ago, HTC held an event which unveiled two new smartphone new families: Ultra U and U Play. Because devices for the company is really unusual, will talk about them individually.
For a start, it should be noted that HTC U Ultra during the presentation was not positioned as a flagship smartphone, so we’re still waiting for HTC 11 (the name is hypothetical).
Despite this, U Ultra its parameters is on a par with the still current flagship competitors same HTC 10. First and foremost, the product has a display. More precisely, the fact that there’s two of them, as some models of LG. The main diagonal of 5.7 inches has a resolution of 2560 x 1440 pixels and 160 x 1040 pixels at a diagonal of 2 inch. Matrix type — IPS. Covers screens Gorilla glass 5.
The heart of the smartphone is SoC Snapdragon 821, which has 4 GB of RAM. Flash memory at the device 64, or 128 GB with use of microSD card.
The second feature U Ultra — design. No, there’s nothing extremely original, but any model HTC new not like. The smartphone is made of metal and glass, and the play of light on the rear panel can be estimated on photos. Yes, Huawei has already implemented a similar Honor in 8, but the trend is this solution still did not. By the way, the new HTC will be available in black, white, pink and blue colors.
The main camera of the smartphone is characterized by a resolution of 12 MP (UltraPixel technology 2), a pixel size of 1.55 microns, a maximum aperture of F/1.8 and optical stabilization. The settings the camera is completely identical to the HTC 10, so at least we can expect similar image quality, and possibly the best. The front camera has a resolution of 16 megapixels.
The capacity of the battery is only 3000 mAh, which, given the huge display and powerful platform is unlikely to provide adequate autonomy. Fast charging technology Quick Charge 3.0.
HTC fans will appreciate the fact that U used the Ultra stereo speakers BoomSound. Also here are four of the microphone and some U Sonic technology, which analyzes the structure of the inner ear of the user by pulses, similar to sonar, and then adjusts the sound of the smartphone accordingly. It sounds a bit strange and it is unclear whether it is technology or more marketing. It should also be noted that the novelty is no headphone Jack 3.5 mm. But there is a USB-C port 3.1.
Stands the novelty. In addition, the smartphone is running Android 7.0 with a proprietary shell Sense, he received also a Sense assistant Companion that analyzes the user’s habits and can give out various tips and reminders, but specific details about his work yet. HTC claims that Sense Companion will develop the better, the more users will use it.
Dimensions of new items are 162,4 x 79,8 x 8 mm and weight 170 g. In the US the cost of a smartphone is $750. Will also be a limited edition, featuring the use of sapphire glass, but its price is unknown.
