HTC U11 All Set To Receive Android 8.0 Oreo Update

HTC U11 All Set To Receive Android 8.0 Oreo Update

Disclosed over the weekend, owners of an unlocked HTC U11 are in for a treat this week.

Once the update arrives, the Sony Xperia X Performance will get all the Oreo-centric features. The update will also include the users to get a healthy battery life and a more fast performance. After the update to Oreo, users of this phone will be able to enjoy new app shortcuts, notification dots and picture in picture mode, among other Oreo-related features.

The announcement comes via HTC's Mo Versi, VP, Product Management, on his Twitter account. The device had originally shipped with Nougat just a matter of months ago and will now come with the latest version of Android for new buyers. HTC seems to be on the right track, as it already released the update in its homeland, Taiwan, and the United States is already getting the update too. Users who have already experienced Android's Oreo up front have revealed many features that make the OS one of Android's most anticipated update to-date.

Sony was amongst the first manufactures to provide Android Oreo experience on its flagship devices with the Xperia XZ premium and now the company has started rolling out the Android Oreo update for the Xperia XZ and Xperia XZs. The newly released U11 Life has also been added to this list of smartphones said to have the update out soon.

You must take your valuable data and images out from the smartphone using a microSD card or any other hard drive because the update may cause loss of your data. The HTC U11 Life came with an Android 8.0 version out of the box for all global markets besides the USA market. I'll let you know when we're close.
