HTC unveils its 'unexpected surprise' announcement, shows off Blue Sapphire U Ultra

21 March 2017

If you've been waiting anxiously to find out what the company is going to unveil then you'll be disappointed to find out that it's not a new device.

When HTC Taiwan teased a Spring surprise for March 20, press couldn't help themselves but jump to the wild idea that HTC was going to unveil an HTC 11. Note that no matter which version you choose you still get a Sapphire lens cover.

HTC promised to adorn the U Ultra with a Sapphire glass, specifically for the top end 128GB model. Many jumped to the conclusion thinking that we would see the new HTC 11, but as we reported, the chances of that were nearly non-existent.

Speculation about today's "unexpected surprise" from HTC turned out to be overly optimistic.

HTC is offering some bundled extras; customers who pre-order before the launch on March 28 get a free leather case, a power bank, and a key ring - plus limited-edition packaging.

This particular color option has only been announced for customers in Taiwan at this point in time so it's unclear if and when HTC is going to offer in markets other than its home country.
