HTC has launched the HTC U Ultra earlier this year as a way to go ahead of the competition and in order to get a good start to the year after some tough 2-3 years. The company’s hopes failed as the HTC U Ultra was criticized for using the 2016 specs in a phone launched in early 2017. However, the company is now offering the HTC U Ultra at some discounted prices in order to reduce losses. The company is also providing support to the phone as well which can help power the phone. We are getting some reports out from public that the HTC U Ultra is receiving a firmware update.
HTC is rolling out a new firmware update to its premium U Ultra device. The update brings with it system enhancements and bug fixes. This update is arriving over the air, the software update is being seeded to HTC U Ultra as version 1.62.401.1. Surprisingly, the update weighs 515MB, which is quite big to contain only important enhancements and fixes for regular bugs.
HTC launched this premium U Ultra phone in January with a glass back. The phone sports a 5.7-inch Quad HD display with a second screen on top of it which houses HTC’s virtual assistant Sense Companion. It runs Android 7.0 Nougat and is powered by 2.15GHz quad-core Snapdragon 821 SoC. Underneath, the phone packs in 4GB of RAM and 64GB/128GB of internal storage. Power comes courtesy a 3000mAh battery. The imaging department is taken care of by a 12-Ultrapixel rear shooter and a 16MP selfie snapper. If you look at the specs, the phone is not at all bad but the fact that it was launched in 2017 alongside LG G6 and Samsung Galaxy S8 makes it hard to sell. However, if you have a HTC U Ultra, make sure to download the update to your phone as soon as possible.
