HTC U Play with 5.2-inch 1080p Display, Dual 16MP Cameras Announced

HTC U Play

Along with its new high-end phone that was just announced, HTC also launched U Play, its latest mid-end smartphone running Android 7.0 Nougat out-of-the-box with Sense UI on top. Unlike U Ultra, this lacks dual display setup; is powered by a MediaTek Helio P10 processor, and packs a smaller battery. The phone however comes with the new AI-based Sense Companion app for smart suggestions.

It comes in two variants, 3GB RAM with 32GB storage and 4GB RAM with 64GB storage, both expandable via MicroSD slot included (up to 2TB). The U Play has dual noise-cancelling microphones; harbors a fingerprint sensor beneath the home button, and lacks 3.5mm audio jack.
