HTC U11 Users Will Receive Android 8.0 Oreo Update Starting Today

HTC U11 Users Will Receive Android 8.0 Oreo Update Starting Today

HTC has announced it's now rolling out Android 8.0 Oreo to unlocked variants of its U11 flagship smartphone. The update will be rolled out over-the-air (OTA) and should eventually reach all devices.

This update wasn't exactly teased by HTC and the last time we heard anything about HTC + Oreo was back in August when the company confirmed it would bring Oreo to the HTC 10, U11, and U Ultra. It is still unknown whether the update rollout started in other regions or not. Both the smartphones were launched at IFA and are now getting the latest Android version. These features include Picture-in-Picture mode, smart text selection, auto-fill, notification dots, new app folder design, Google Play Protect and more.

While Mo Versi did not mention the release date of the Android Oreo update for other models in his initial post, he did reveal some details as answers to other posts. The HTC U11 Plus already comes with Android 8.0 Oreo pre-installed.

There is no word on when the final stable version of the Oreo update will reach both V30 and V30+ phones, but it is at least a couple of weeks away.

If you've got an unlocked HTC U11, watch for your Android 8.0 update starting tomorrow.

The confirmation of the rollout of the update came when VP for product management at HTC, Mo Versi tweeted stating that "OS update will be available for download" "starting on Monday". Running HTC Edge Sense user interface, the handset comes with 8 sensors on the sides to register the squeeze. Called Xperia Actions, this patented feature of Sony has the ability to determine the best set of device settings for improving the performance and battery life of the smartphone.
