HTC Announces It Will Launch U Ultra With Sapphire Back Cover On March 28

You remember recent teaser image from HTC that said "Spring is coming"? Well, don't hold your breath, as the Taiwanese company has nothing to announce that we didn't know. HTC has revealed that its U Ultra smartphone with a Sapphire glass, which is exclusive to the 128 GB model, will be launch next week.

The smartphone will first reach Taiwan, on March 28, but judging by the price tag, not many people will actually buy it. It will be available for purchase for NTD 28,900, $950/€880. As for other market availability, there is no indication when that could happen.
