According to reviews by GSMARENA, the "U" in the phone's name stands for the company's new design language, while the "11" follows the numbering of the HTC One M9, and then last year's HTC 10. The reason for the "U" is thanks in part to the super-reflective surface on the back glass which HTC says "is a reflection of you".
With the alterations made in the HTC U11 there is an evident change in surface designs and this may bring about a revolutionary change in HTC's production style. We all know mobile phone users prefer the sleeky glass design to the metallic bodies that HTC had usually opted for.

Would the HTC U11 be durable?
HTC is the first mobile tech company that launched a device with the most recent chipset from Qualcomm worldwide but I think the device still has to prove itself to users when it finally hit the stores.
