HTC's Unlocked U11 is Now Getting Upgraded to Android 8.0 Oreo

Nokia 8 officially starts receiving Android 8.0 Oreo update

Android 8.0 Oreo for unlocked HTC U11 will arrive tomorrow ...

The company had rolled out the update in Taiwan a while ago, so the news was expected by all HTC users. The U11 runs a almost stock version of Android 7.1.1 and has some pretty powerful internals (such as the Snapdragon 835 SoC, 6GB RAM and 12MP rear camera) along with some useful gimmicky features (such as the "squeezable" Edge Sense and multiple AI-based assistants).

Vice President of Product Management at HTC, Mo Versi, took to Twitter on Saturday to announce that the Android Oreo update for the HTC U11 will be available today starting with the unlocked version. Even so, in the end, the Android Oreo upgrade will reach all HTC U11 units in the US.
