This upgrade means that U11 users will get all the Oreo-centric features that are part of the latest Android version.

As it was expected from them, HTC has started offering the Android Oreo OS for its U11 smartphone. Mr. Versi didn't specify which countries will be prioritized by the upcoming rollout and how long is the entire process expected to take, though Android 8.0 Oreo may not be available on all unlocked units of the device until early 2018. Although the company did not offer a launch date for the update on these two mid-range models, it will most likely come at the beginning of 2018.

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. The newly released U11 Life has also been added to this list of smartphones said to have the update out soon.

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.
