HTC's latest Android smartphone is the U Ultra. It has a 5.7" screen with a new liquid surface designed to better reflect light. The Ultra also introduces a second screen on the front of the display for quick access to top contacts, apps, and notifications.
HTC is also introducing the HTC Sense Companion. This is a personal assistant that learns from you and your routine every day. It can suggest how warm to dress, to leave earlier for work if the weather is bad, and recommend restaurants. The U Ultra has voice recognition built-in as well, so it's able to recognize your voice and respond.
One of the unique things about the HTC U Ultra is that it adjusts its sound automatically to your hearing. It will analyze your ear with a sonic pulse and it adapt it accordingly. It also is capable of playing back high-res audio. The U Ultra has four high-sensitivity omnidirectional mics that can capture positional sound in video and audio recordings, giving you more immersive audio.
The main camera on the HTC U Ultra is 12MP with laser autofocus, an f/1.8 aperture, optical image stabilization, sapphire lens, dual tone LED flash, and face detection. It can record 4K video as well. The front facing camera is 16MP, a "live make-up" feature, auto selfie, voice selfie, and full 1080p video recording.
HTC U Ultra has 64GB of storage with 4GB of RAM. It has a microSD card slot that can add 2TB of additional storage. It comes in black, white, and blue colors.
We'll have a review of the HTC U Ultra shortly after it starts shipping in mid-March.
