HTC U Play now Rs 10000 cheaper

HTC U Play

The HTC U Play has gotten a massive price cut a few months after its arrival in India. The company has officially announced that the phone is now Rs 10000 cheaper and will be available exclusively via Amazon.

To recall, the U Play initially hit the scene alongside the U Ultra back in January 2017. The duo then made its way to India in February at Rs 39990 and Rs 59990, respectively. With the former now getting a Rs 10000 markdown, it’s currently selling at Rs 29990. Coincidentally, even the latter got hold of a Rs 7000 cut in April and is now available at Rs 52990.

The U Play can be seen as a mid-range alternative to the U Ultra since it adopts the same liquid-inspired metal design. It further features support for the brand’s new Sense Companion and USonic headphones. The latter plugs directly into the USB Type-C port since the smartphone doesn’t have a 3.5mm headphone jack.

Amazon India is bundling the U Play with an Amazon Pay cashback offer that gives away up to Rs 2300 if the handset is bought under credit card EMI. Buyers will additionally get a year’s worth of insurance coverage for accidental and liquid damages by Cover Plus at no cost.
