Nothing else has been revealed by the video. All we know that the phone will feature a similar glass construction to the HTC U Ultra in blue shade, as is evident by the teaser image. The teaser image also shows one of the antenna bands on the top/bottom of the phone.

According to several leaks and speculations, the HTC U11 will have a Snapdragon 835 chipset along with 4GB of RAM. The phone could also have a 5.5-inches Quad HD screen and feature a 64GB storage option as standard on the base variant.
