HTC U Ultra flagship with 128GB storage and sapphire glass to launch next month for $920

Earlier this month, HTC unveiled the U Ultra, its new flagship-class handset with a Snapdragon 821 chipset, 4GB RAM and 64GB of storage. Like Apple's latest iPhones, the U Ultra doesn't have a dedicated headphone jack; and like LG's V10 and V20 flagships, the HTC device has a tiny secondary display positioned above the main screen on the front of the device.

At its launch, HTC also promised that it would launch a 'special edition' of the U Ultra, with 128GB of storage, as well as sapphire glass, rather than Corning's Gorilla Glass 5, which features on the standard model.

Details of that limited edition model have now appeared on HTC's store site in Taiwan. While the standard 64GB model is priced at $23,900 TWD (around $760 USD - roughly equivalent to its official $749 price in the United States), the 128GB sapphire glass variant will cost $28,900 TWD (approximately $920 USD).

While the 128GB sapphire edition will be available in Taiwan next month, details of its availability in other markets remain hazy. That model was mentioned in HTC's US press release for the U Ultra, so assuming it makes it to the United States, it seems likely that it will cost around the same as in Taiwan - somewhere around the $900 mark - given the similar pricing of the 64GB model between those two markets.
