HTC U11 teaser tweet props liquid surface, “designed to be quiet no more”

If there’s any company that has to be self-aware of its dithering position in the smartphone field, it’s gotta be HTC. You might be able to characterize its presence as a “quiet” one since, say, the One M8. Year after year, we’ve been down a predictably metallic path with the manufacturer’s flagships. And even though we’ve admired the handiwork that went into each of them, well boy, did it need a change.

The more recent U Ultra and U Play, though, have taken a… shall we say, a “louder” approach with a highly reflective “liquid surface” material drowning the whole of the bodies. And it looks like we’re bound to see more of it with the upcoming U11, to launch May 16.

While HTC Canada has revved up its Twitter game for “the Brilliant U,” calling it “fluid and reflective,” we also learn that the device is “designed to be quiet no more.”

How will the the one-time glory of Taiwan shout? Well, beyond a phone that has a squeeze-based UI and top-end specifications, we don’t know. Marketing? Carrier deals? Perks? We must find out.
