The HTC U Ultra is already available for purchase in the U.S. via the company’s online store, however, the phone has a massive price tag of $749.
Being a flagship, it was expected that the price of the HTC U Ultra will indeed be high, however, given that it has one major downside in the fact that it is powered by an older processor, many will see this $749 price tag as daylight robbery. Well, if you are one of these people, there’s some really good news for you here.
Apparently, the HTC U Ultra has already been discounted on eBay and rather than selling it at the expected price, top-rated seller Never MSRP has listed the phone at a price of $635.99, which saves you a cool $113. It gets even better as the seller has also added a 30-day money back guarantee that also includes possible device replacements, but it’s you who’ll pay for the shipping charges for returning the device.
Keep in mind that this is a brand new HTC U Ultra we’re talking about and given that this phone has just begun shipping, it should indeed be a great deal for those who want to be first to get their hands on this phone. Also, since the device is unlocked, you only get to use GSM carriers such as AT&T and T-Mobile, but no room for Verizon and Sprint.
To keep you on toes, the HTC U Ultra has a 5.7-inch primary screen and a 2.05-inch secondary screen with QHD resolutions, something that closely mimics what LG has been doing with the V10 and V20. Under the hood, you get a Snapdragon 821 SoC paired with 4GB RAM and 64GB storage. The back has a 12MP shooter with PDAF, OIS and dual-tone LED flash while the front features a 16MP selfie shooter. TO keep it alive is a 3000mAh battery and software-wise, you get Android 7.0 Nougat out of the box.
