HTC has teased its avid fans with a message stating that it would deliver a surprise this Spring. The said revelation for the patrons is reportedly the HTC Sapphire U Ultra limited edition that is already accessible through pre-orders in Taiwan.
According to The Verge, it was last week when HTC's Taiwan Facebook page has posted a mysterious teaser image with a message stating that "HTC will give you an unexpected surprise." With this post, many have speculated that HTC might be doings some sort marketing promotion for the successor of its former flagship, the HTC 10.
Moreover, it turned out that the "unexpected surprise" that HTC will deliver its fans is a limited edition variant on the Sapphire U Ultra featuring a sapphire glass screen and an enormous 128 GB of storage. The company already revealed this handset during CES which was held earlier this year which makes it less unanticipated surprise.
In a separate news, Droid Report has learned that HTC already put the limited edition version of Sapphire U Ultra for pre-order in Taiwan at NT$ 28,000 which is translates to estimated $946. It is notable that the price of the Sapphire U Ultra is near $200 more than the cost of the standard version of the handset.
Nevertheless, it appears that it is worth the price as the Sapphire U Ultra boasts a screen that is attractive and uncommon on a smartphone. The limited Edition Sapphire U Ultra model is now obtainable for the customers and they could place a pre-order of this exclusive piece of technology in four varieties of colors.
For the HTC patrons who will place a pre-order of the Sapphire U Ultra with 128 GB internal storage, they will also obtain a $100 bundle. This deal contains a leather flip case, a fast charge 3.0 power bank, and a key ring. Even though the Taiwanese tech giant didn't divulge additional information about the release for the rest of the world, the limited edition Sapphire U Ultra is particularly offered for the Taiwanese market.
