Meet HTC U Ultra

Meet the HTC U Ultra phablet.
With its 5.7" screen, next generation intelligence and sophisticated liquid surface, the U Ultra phablet is made for U.
Featuring a convenient new dual display, an adaptive sound system and a personal companion that gets to know you.

Reflects U

Designed to reflect the best U. The Ultra’s molded glass front and back accentuates the symmetrically fluid blend between polished metal and stunning glass.

Puts U on Top

Get updated, not interrupted. The U Ultra’s second screen gives you the info you need, at your fingertips. The big 5.7" screen is great for everyday use, while the new second screen is perfect for fast, convenient access to the things you use the most—top contacts, app shortcuts, event notifications and more.

Listens to U

Because your inner ear is as unique as your fingerprint, the HTC USonic* audio platform analyzes your inner ear and automatically adapts the sound profile to optimize your listening experience.

HTC USonic earphones are included with purchase of an HTC U Ultra phablet in the US.

* HTC USonic is compatible with USB-C connection only.

Hears U

Four high-sensitivity omnidirectional mics capture positional sound in your video and audio recordings, allowing you to record 360-degree immersive audio that’s just like being there.

Captures U

Improving on our highest-rated camera yet, the new U Ultra gives you photos with less blur, super-fast laser focus, new Phase Detection Auto Focus (PDAF) and bigger pixels for better photo quality at night.


The new selfie camera on HTC U Ultra lets you easily switch between the high resolution detail of 16MP and the unparalleled 4x light sensitivity* of new UltraPixel™.

* UltraPixel mode is four times more sensitive to light than standard mode.

Learns from U
