HTC U11 in Solar Red now up for pre-order in the UK
The Solar Red HTC U11
variant, arguably the best version of HTC’s latest flagship, is now
available for pre-order in the UK. The handset is priced at £649 — the
same as the other color variants — and is available exclusively from the
official HTC website.
The Solar Red version joins the pre-existing blue, silver, and
black variants of the device, though it’s only the red model that
arrives with dual-SIM capabilities. Thankfully, this doesn’t come at the
expensive of microSD support, so the U11 can still be used in a single
SIM + microSD card configuration.
While the dual-SIM setup will no doubt appeal to some buyers, the
Solar Red device is a great choice simply because it looks so good. The
handset’s rear sweeps between a metallic red or gold depending on the
viewing angle — it’s one of the best looking phones we’ve seen all year
besides that green-gold option from Essential (though we don’t yet know how that will look in real life).
The HTC U11 Solar Red edition will start shipping at a yet to be disclosed date in July. Visit our HTC U11 review for all our thoughts on the new “squeezable” handset, or hit the link below to check it out at HTC’s official website.
