The special “sapphire” variant of the HTC U Ultra comes with 128GB of storage inside, and is more expensive than the Gorilla Glass 5-only version of the HTC U Ultra that costs 699€.
This new variant of the U Ultra smartphone will be available for purchase in Germany and Switzerland on April 18, but if you’re interested you can now pro-order it in these two countries. It’s possible that after this release, the U Ultra “sapphire” will soon be available in other countries as well.
