The HTC U Play has recieved a major price cut. The 64GB version of the smartphone is now retailing for Rs 29,990 on Amazon India. The smartphone launched in India in February this year with a price tag of Rs 39,990. Though Amazon lists the official price at Rs 41,990. The phone is currently available in India in Sapphire Blue color variant only.
The latest price cut is likely to get HTC more attention to its new line of premium smartphones. After the price cut, the HTC U Play will still compete against the OnePlus 3T, one of the popular choices for under Rs 30,000 segment. Though HTC and OnePlus cater to a different set of audiences altogether.
