HTC on Twitter has confirmed that the U11, which is the company’s flagship for this year, will be getting the Android 8.0 Oreo update in Q4 of 2017. Well, that means the U11 would receive the Oreo update anytime between October and December. However, what’s good to know is that HTC will be rolling out the Oreo update to the U11 before the year ends. Well, at least that’s what it’s currently saying.
The company has also confirmed that the U Ultra and last year’s 10 will be getting the Oreo update, however, there’s no information yet as to when the updates will be rolled out to these smartphones. Speaking of the Android 8.0 Oreo update, it’s currently rolling out to Google devices like the Nexus 5X, Nexus 6P, Pixel and Pixel XL.
