A couple of days ago, we were tempted by HTC as it teased something unexpected Surprise is coming on March 20th. Well, drastically opposite to our thoughts, though we had some guesses of the same, it’s the Sapphire glass edition of their recently launched U Ultra that got unwrapped today.
While the surprise isn’t a surprise and not even unexpected as we got to know about the same back in January, we are still keen to know about the endurance of the same as the standard U Ultra just got a reality check from JerryRigEverything and it failed to pass the durability test.
The Sapphire glass U Ultra Edition is a limited edition that holds a 128GB internal memory and a sapphire screen. The device can be pre-ordered in Taiwan at a whopping price of NT $28,900, this translates to $920 in US currency. Pre-orders should start shipping by March 28th.
In addition to the phone, the luxury package also contains a leather case, a power bank, and a key ring along with a fancier packaging.
Let’s wrap up the remaining specification it holds, there’ a large 5.7-inch display with a secondary display residing at the top to showcase the notifications. It is powered by Snapdragon 821 processor and coupled with a 4GB RAM. It comes pre-installed with Android Nougat OS. The front of the device holds a 16MP ultra-pixel camera whereas the camera snapper on the rear side is 12MP. There is classic front facing Boomsound speakers with HTC USonic. The device holds a 3,000mAH battery
