HTC definitely didn't skimp on features for the new U Ultra. The new flagship smartphone is wrapped in a "liquid surface" that uses a special glass molding process to achieve the slick finish. Flip it over and you'll immediately notice the big 5.7" Quad HD screen and the accompanying 2.05" display that gives you quick access to things like contacts or your most-used apps.  

Another big new feature is their HTC Sense Companion feature that is an always learning, always-on virtual assistant that can help you answer/reject calls, hit the snooze on your alarm, or suggest the proper attire based on the day's weather. Other specs include a 12MP rear camera, 16MP front camera, 3D audio recording, a Qualcomm Snapdragon 821 processor, 64GB of storage with microSD slot, a USB Type C charging port, and you can even get a sapphire glass screen in an upcoming limited edition model.
