The new Solar Red color morphs ever-so-slightly from a bright, bustling orange to a fiery, reddish-gold, depending from which angle you look at it. It utilizes the same "liquid glass" surface as the rest of its brethren, including the cool-as-a-cucumber "amazing silver" model we reviewed earlier this month.

. Android Central's own Andrew Martonik was particularly impressed with the phone's responsiveness:


HTC continues to offer the smoothest, most consistent software performance outside of a Pixel or Nexus. Through what is surely a combination of obsessive software engineers and plenty of licensed technology, the U11's interface performance is immaculate. It's a sort of subconscious fluidity that's tough to describe. Touch response is perfect, scrolling feels just right and apps are blisteringly fast. No stutters, no hiccups, no issues at any point — no matter how smooth my other phones are sometimes, they're never this consistently perfect.

HTC is also launching its "Kick off to Summer" sale. There will be discounts for the HTC U Ultra, HTC 10, and HTC Bolt. Accessories such as JBL's Reflect Aware Type-C headphones will also be on sale for half-off with the purchase of a new device.
