Select HTC U11 units start receiving Android Oreo update

This has become something of a tradition for Mo: Around the same time a year ago, he took to Twitter to announce the Nougat update for the unlocked HTC 10.

For that matter, Versi added that support for Oreo would also be coming to the HTC 10 and the HTC U Ultra "soon". "Thanks", Versi tweeted. Over that, he said that HTC A9 won't be receiving Android Oreo OS update.

HTC has announced it's now rolling out Android 8.0 Oreo to unlocked variants of its U11 flagship smartphone. His post notably mentions that only the unlocked version of the HTC U11 will be receiving the promotion to Oreo starting from November 27. We may have missed HTC's special deals but this is one offer we know U11 phone owners can't resist. Thos in the USA can also look out for the update starting today.

The HTC U11 will get a slew of new features with the arrival of Android Oreo. While we haven't heard of handsets outside of Korea getting the update just yet, there's no reason to think that it won't spread very soon. The smartphone now runs on Android 7.1.2 Nougat operating system.

There's a picture-in-picture mode for videos, for instance, a new notification system that displays dots on app icons and the highly anticipated Project Treble, which makes it easier to download new versions of Android.

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.
