Unlocked HTC U11 now supports Android Oreo

Official: Android 8.0 Oreo Hitting HTC U11 From November 27

Good news for (some) Android users! His post notably mentions that only the unlocked version of the HTC U11 will be receiving the promotion to Oreo starting from November 27. It's released in phases so it might take a few days for the deployment process to complete. For now, HTC is rolling out the update to unlocking HTC U11.

Unfortunately, he didn't share any specific in terms of dates, but now that it's rolling out for the HTC U11, we can only hope that it will reach more HTC handsets and carrier-locked devices soon. The first ones who will get the Android Oreo upgrade are the HTC U11 unlocked units. The initial version of the firmware distributed in Taiwan was approximately 1.3GB in size and the global build of the OS is likely to be around that same weight mark, though HTC has yet to detail the software in any capacity.

HTC's Vice President of Product Management Mo Versi announced the news via his Twitter handle in the midst of Thanksgiving.

"Intimate partner abuse, workplace sexual harassment, sexist jokes and even sexual assaults are played down and minimized". The European Union and the United Nations launched the Spotlight Initiative to Eliminate Violence Against Women and Girls .

That said, Mo also confirmed that the Oreo update for the U11 on Sprint will be "out as quickly as possible".

With Oreo on your phone, your world will be opened up to native Picture-in-Picture, notification dots, autofill, and much more. LG announced previously that the LG V30 will get the Android Oreo update in South Korea in December. I'll let you know when we're close.

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 launched running Android 7.1 Nougat out of the box.
