HTC U Play was already an affordable (theory of relativity) phone in the U series but the 10k cut has surely added to the specifications of the smartphone. The smart assistant is yet to make a mark on both HTC U Ultra and Play and HTC has kind off forgotten that about the personal assistant which it boasted about a lot at the launch. The storage space of the HTC U Play can be further expanded up to 2TB via an external microSD card. The actual price of these smartphones was Rs. 39,990 for U-Play and Rs. 59,990 for U Ultra model. On the inside there is an octa-core MediaTek Helio P10 SoC. While, on the other hand, the front camera comes with an UltraPixel mode, a BSI sensor, an f/2.0 aperture with a 28mm focal length. It comes with a 5.2-inch full HD display with a screen resolution of 1920x1080 IPS LCD display.

The handset has a lot of connectivity options. There is a rather small, 2,500 mAh battery with fast charging support. Connectivity options also include front fingerprint sensor, 4G LTE with VoLTE, Wi-Fi 802.11 a/b/g/n/ac (2.4 & 5 GHz), BlueTooth 4.2, Global Positioning System antenna with GLONASS, NFC, DLNA, Miracast, HTC Connect and USB 2.0 Type-C port. It also features a fingerprint sensor embedded in the home button. The HTC smartphone sports an accelerometer, ambient light sensor, digital compass, and gyroscope, weighs in at 145 grammes, and measures 145.99×72.9×7.99mm.
