HTC just dropped some official news today for two upcoming devices. The U Ultra will be US bound and come in at $749, while the U Play will be a mid-range device released in other countries price yet TBD.
The U Ultra comes with a pretty hefty price tag putting it in competition with the likes of all of high end smart phone flagship devices at least in terms of price. The U Play will get you mid-range specs and Im hoping the price tag will reflect the compromises. So what exactly are you getting for your money?
