HTC U11+ to have a "translucent" color variant

We're only a few days away from HTC's November 2 event, wherethe company will likely unveil the high-end HTC U11+ (or U11 Plus), and maybethe mid-range U11 Life, too.  


The U11+ is shaping up to be a very interesting smartphone.Besides bringing various novelties - including a 6-inch, 18:9 aspect ratiodisplay with pretty thin bezels - the handset may have a rare colorvariant: translucent.


According to Evan Blass (aka @evleaks), translucent is oneof the three color versions of the HTC U11+, alongside black and silver. Normally,translucent should mean that the phone features a see-through exterior, though thismight also be just a fancy name for a color that won't really let us see insidethe new device.  


Not long ago, HTC revealed a U11+ teaser image - included above - showing whatlooks to be a slightly transparent rear shell, so translucent could very wellhave a literal meaning here. We'll just have to wait and find out if that's thecase.
