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.

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.

HTC Companion

Learns From U

Introducing HTC Sense Companion*—the personal companion that’s always learning from you, and the things you do every day. Paired with built-in voice recognition, it’s able to recognize your voice and respond. Just say the word to make a phone call, send messages and even begin hands-free navigation.

* HTC Sense Companion retrieves information from third party websites and databases, HTC is not responsible for the accuracy of such third party content. Feature available for download in early 2017 and may not be pre-installed on HTC U Ultra. Feature installation requires an internet connection and download and acceptance of an HTC system update.
