Mo Versi, the company's VP of product management, recently announced the news in a tweet. Those with an unlocked HTC U11 will be able to update their device to the latest major Android release, Oreo, starting today.
If you have the unlocked variant of the HTC U11 you can manually check for the update by going into Settings About Software updates Check now.
Although the additional features that the Android Oreo update will bring to the HTC U11 are unclear, we do have a picture of what users will get by updating to the OS itself.More news: Sindhu Eases Into Hong Kong Open Final
LG isn't the first Android smartphone maker to release the Oreo beta update for one of its phones. It is clear that users will experience popular updates like Picture-in-Picture mode, which gives users the luxury to open another app while simultaneously watching a video.
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. While we didn't hear anything from HTC itself, we knew other markets would follow soon. Besides a more bezel-free aesthetic and an 18:9 display, the U11 Plus is largely the same handset that the U11 is from the inside, but it runs Android 8.0 Oreo out of the box.
