HTC is counting down toward releasing a red U11 in the US on June 20th

Interested in picking up HTC’s latest premium smartphone, the squeezable U11, but don’t like the current US color choices of blue, silver, or black? Then I’ve got some good news on that front. HTC has spent the last few days counting down on Twitter toward a release of the internationally offered red-colored version of its newest smartphone here in the States, originally spotted by SlashGear.

The countdown started on June 16th with a picture of the ruby-colored U11 next to a large number “4.” And by careful analysis of subsequent posts — further photographs of the red U11 next to sequentially smaller “3” and “2” numerals — I have applied my prodigious powers of arithmetic calculation to determine that we should expect to see the red U11 variant released in the US sometime on June 20th.

Despite the oddly dragged-out announcement for a new color of a smartphone, the teasers do show off one thing: HTC’s iridescent, curved glass-and-metal design looks excellent in red.
