Meet HTC U Ultra. The big screen 5.7” phone made for the brilliant U. It reflects U beautifully with its sophisticated new liquid surface. It puts U on top, courtesy of a convenient new Dual Display. It listens to U, adapting sound to your unique hearing. It even learns from U, becoming a companion that evolves to get to know you better over time.
HTC U Ultra introduces a new, beautifully contoured, liquid surface that’s designed to reflect the best you. Hold it up and you’ll appreciate the phone’s symmetrical construction, and the way it transforms light as you turn it. To achieve this extraordinary look, we developed an entirely new process where colors bond to the glass in multiple layers to reflect light beautifully – adding brilliance and depth from every angle. Then we mold the glass evenly around the sides and edges, using extreme pressure and heat to mimic the natural surface tension of liquid; folding and bending the surface to create a perfect blend between metal and glass.
Learns from U
Introducing HTC Sense Companion1. The personal companion who is always learning from you, and the things you do every day. It can suggest that you dress warm and leave a little earlier for work if snow is forecasted2; remind you to take a power bank on longer trips; and even recommend a restaurant when you’re away for the weekend and then book seats for you. Best of all, it’s made to evolve and get to know you better over time.
HTC U Ultra comes with voice recognition built-in. So it’s able to recognize your voice and respond, even if it’s asleep. Just say the word to take or reject incoming calls, snooze or dismiss an alarm, send messages and even begin hands-free navigation.

Puts U on Top
Get updated, not interrupted. HTC U Ultra introduces a second screen which gives you the information you need, at your fingertips. The big 5.7” phablet sized screen on this phone is great for regular day to day activity; while the new second screen is perfect for fast, convenient access to the things you use the most – like your top contacts, app shortcuts, event notifications and more.
Listens to U
Every person’s inner ear is as unique as their fingerprint. We all experience sound differently. HTC USonic* analyzes your inner ears with a sonic pulse, and then adapts to you. It’s like having a sound engineer in your phone; now you can hear the details you were missing.
* HTC USonic earphones are included with purchase of an HTC U Ultra smartphone in the US.
Inbox accessories may vary from country to country.
HTC USonic compatible with USB-C connection only.
HTC U Ultra has four high-sensitivity omnidirectional mics that capture positional sound in your video and audio recordings. Which means that now you can record sound in 360 degrees for immersive audio that’s just like being there. It’s the future of sound recording.
Every phone camera claims to take great photos. Ours has proof. It builds on and improves our highest rated camera yet, introduced in our HTC 10, which was awarded an industry leading DxOMark score of 88. You can get photos with less blur, super-fast laser focus and new Phase Detection Auto Focus (PDAF) to catch every moment. You also get bigger pixels for better photos at night, because good things can happen in the dark.
Pick the best U
Take brilliant selfies anyway you like. The new selfie camera on HTC U Ultra lets you easily switch between 16MP and UltraPixel™. Now you can choose between the unparalleled 4x light sensitivity* that UltraPixel offers (perfect for candlelit dinners), and the high resolution detail that 16MP provides.
* UltraPixel mode is four times more sensitive to light than standard mode.
