For the specifications, the U Play is more of a mid-range device. It comes with a 5.2-inch full HD display with a screen resolution of 1920×1080 IPS LCD display. The smartphone is powered by an octa-core MediaTek Helio P10 processor and will be made available in 3GB RAM and 32GB, and 4GB RAM/64GB storage options. On the camera front, the device is equipped with a 16-megapixel rear camera with BSI sensor, OIS, PDAF, f2/2.0 aperture, while for the front there is a 16-megapixel front shooter with f/2.0 aperture, 28mm focal length.
The device runs on latest Android 7.0 Nougat and is powered by a 2500 mAh battery with fast charging support. On the connectivity front, the device support 4G LTE, GPS, Bluetooth 4.2, Wi-Fi, NFC, DLNA, Miracast, HTC Connect and USB 2.0 Type-C.
With the U series, HTC also introduced its own smart personal assistant with the name ‘Sense Companion’ – which never came into real existence. 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.
