HTC U is a brand new lineup from HTC. Among the two HTC U phones released earlier this year, the smaller HTC U Play is going to launch in Nepal. Although we don’t yet know the price and the date of release for the device.
Going by the specs, the phone has a 5.2 inch 1920*1080 Super LCD screen with Gorilla Glass protection. It has an Octa-core MediaTek Helio P10 SoC with up to 4GB of RAM and 64GB of storage. With a decent 16MP front and back camera setup, it could well be a good option for the camera enthusiast. The phone, however, houses a smaller 2500mAh battery. There is a front mounted fingerprint sensor, a glass back with a metal frame and HTC Sense Companion for AI-based suggestions.

Should You buy HTC U Play in Nepal?
Well, it depends on the pricing of the device. If it is priced similar to the launch price of US440 (Rs. 45,000), you should be looking some where else. You can buy phones like the One Plus 3 (Rs.45,900), or the Xperia X (Rs. 38,500) that comes with better design and hardware specs.
