Presuming you are referring towards the texture for the Teleport block itself, it is unlikely to return as it was considerably wasteful towards memory and contributed towards lag more than they currently do.

Oh that's a shame it looked really cool since PC is more powerful it could come back I'm not sure.

If you really wanted to, You could script this function back into the game by messing with the TintColor script command while a player is on top of an obsidian block and inside a teleporter block.

I don't think that's what he means because I do happen to vaguely remember there being a change in the screen that was synchronized with the "WEEEuuWOOOuuWEEE" sound effect that the teleporter block makes when you are standing in it.

The teleporter frame was flashing at one point it was removed

Years and years ago I stopped using teleporters entirely because of that wretched noise, I hate it so much
