Unlocked HTC U11 now supports Android Oreo

Those who own HTC U11 unlocked units can expect the update to become available for download starting today.

Disclosed over the weekend, owners of an unlocked HTC U11 are in for a treat this week. HTC did promise its release but we weren't sure when exactly the update would be ready. "Thanks", Versi tweeted. Over that, he said that HTC A9 won't be receiving Android Oreo OS update. The news about this rollout comes just two weeks after the company launched the update for U11 devices in Taiwan.

Most of the smartphone makers are sending latest Android 8.0 Oreo updates to their devices.

For that matter, Versi added that support for Oreo would also be coming to the HTC 10 and the HTC U Ultra "soon".

Android Oreo has other features like including detailed Notification dots for every app and Autofill passwords, faster boot times, background limits, installation of apps via APK, over 60 new emojis, notification dots, Wide-gamut colour for apps, Snoozing individual notification, Adaptive icons, Keyboard navigation, WebView enhancements and much more.

Users of HTC U11 will also enjoy the generic ability of the Android Oreo OS to limit the background activity that is generated through the least used applications. The smartphone was shipped with Android 7.1 in the United States market, which left users anticipating the update for Android 8.0 Oreo.
