HTC just announced a new smartphone the U Ultra at a keynote event . The personal touch is totally all over the place, with a brand new Sense Companion assistant taking center stage.
The U Ultra is covered in Sapphire glass. What Apple tried and couldn't achieve, HTC has done on its new flagship. The catch here is that the Sapphire will be limited to an exclusive edition to be launched later in the year.

Coming to the specifications , you might call the U Ultra a repackaged LG V20 - it sports a 5.7-inch QHD display with a secondary portion on top. Under the hood is a Snapdragon 821 chipset. There's 4GB of RAM and 64GB/128GB storage versions with microSD for expansion.
The U Ultra sports a 12MP UltraPixel unit with large 1.55µm pixels behind an f/1.8 lens with OIS. This one is made of Sapphire crystal on all version, at least.
The HTC 10 had laser autofocus, the U Ultra adds phase detection to the mix. The front camera also sports a 16MP shooter, which will also output 4MP images for the UltraPixel-nostalgic among you.

3,000mAh for this much display sounds like a red flag. The battery charges through a Type-C USB port, which just happens to be the only wired interface on the U Ultra - farewell to the 3.5mm jack. It's all because of U, though - that enables HTC to deliver a personalized audio output to match the specifics of your eardrums. Like an equalizer, only better. Supposedly.
Liquid surface is the new design philosophy that the U Ultra introduces. It manifests itself in a fully symmetrical all-metal unibody, which also happens to be all-glass on the outside. We're still trying to wrap our heads around that.
The U Ultra will be available globally this quarter, which is not particularly specific. Price will be $749 in the US, pre-orders open now, and units will start shipping in mid-March.
