The news about this rollout comes just two weeks after the company launched the update for U11 devices in Taiwan.
Mo Versi, the company's VP of product management, recently announced the news in a tweet. Carrier models will have to wait even longer, but they will get the long-awaited update soon too. For now, HTC is rolling out the update to unlocking HTC U11. Those who own HTC U11 unlocked units can expect the update to become available for download starting today. 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).
LG isn't the first Android smartphone maker to release the Oreo beta update for one of its phones. Thos in the U.S. can also look out for the update starting today.
With Oreo on your phone, your world will be opened up to native Picture-in-Picture, notification dots, autofill, and much more.
If you are wondering, when will Android Oreo be rolled out to the HTC U11 in other regions, we think it should be by the end of this year. This and other efficient features will also optimize the smartphone in a way that helps it in saving battery. Nokia also dropped the Oreo update for the Nokia 8 a few days ago. "It's coming soon. I'll let you know when we're close". You can also check for updates manually by going into Settings About Software updates Check now. The smartphone now runs on Android 7.1.2 Nougat operating system.
