HTC confirms Android Oreo update for its HTC 10, HTC U Ultra and HTC U 11

Earlier in the week, Google revealed Android 8.0 Oreo, and released the software update for a number of Nexus and Pixel devices. HTC has now confirmed that its HTC U 11, HTC U Ultra and HTC 10 will be updated to Android Oreo.

HTC is one of the manufacturers Google announced that would roll out its latest software update by the end of the year, and at the time of writing, HTC had yet to explain exactly “when” and which of the devices would receive the update. 

These three HTC devices are high-end and will receive the Oreo update before year’s end. The HTC 10 is the 2016 flagship device, and was well received at launch although sales figures were disappointing. HTC’s 2017 flagship, the HTC U 11, has been more of a success, as earlier in the year the company announced that it sold more HTC U 11 phones than any recent flagship. The HTC U Ultra being a big-screen phablet that seemingly sits between these two devices, launched in early 2017. Given that manufacturers tend to support high-end models, it is no surprise that these three devices will be receiving the update to Android Oreo. HTC explained in their Twitter feed that they will be providing details of the update’s timing as well as other smartphone models that will be updated to Android Oreo.

We can expect more manufacturers to announce upgrade plans of their own for Android 8.0 Oreo as we move ahead.
