HTC U Play and HTC U Ultra - new HTC phones
U is a new line of smartphones from HTC that have recently appeared on sale. On the Polish market we can already get HTC U Ultra and HTC U Plus, and in mid-May will appear HTC U with touch-sensitive frames.
The Taiwanese are particularly proud of their new line of smartphones, especially with the top-end HTC U Ultra, which surprises with technological solutions. To start with, it's worth mentioning that the chassis itself is made from premium sapphire glass, and the cheaper version - the Gorilla Glass 5. The HTC U Ultra instead of one is two screens. Next to the main 5.2 inch display is a 2 inch auxiliary display that is located above the main panel. The secondary screen gives you access to contacts, notifications, and most used applications.
Briefly about the specifications of the HTC U Ultra

One of the most interesting elements in the HTC U Ultra is the technology that will make your smartphone adapt to your needs.

It is also interesting that the Sonic technology in the headphones to match the sound quality to the ear of a particular user. Headphones emit an ultrasonic beam. The beam scans the inside of the ear and thus the device knows its parameters and acoustic needs.
