A number of key manufacturers have begun rolling out Android Oreo to their devices. Sony was the first with the Xperia XZ Premium and was followed by OnePlus for the OnePlus 3/3T. Nokia also dropped the Oreo update for the Nokia 8 a few days ago. Now it is the turn of the HTC U11.

Vice President of Product Management at HTC, Mo Versi, took to Twitter on Saturday to announce that the Android Oreo update for the HTC U11 will be available today starting with the unlocked version.

In replies to questions related to the tweet, he also mentioned that the update will soon be available to Sprint users as well as the HTC 10, HTC U Ultra, and HTC U11 Life.


The HTC U11 is a 5.5” smartphone with a 1440 x 2560 resolution. It is powered by the Snapdragon 835 mobile platform and comes in 6GB RAM + 128GB ROM and 4GB RAM + 64GB ROM variants.

HTC is one of the few manufacturers that have not jumped on the dual camera bandwagon ever since it became mainstream. So the U11 comes with a single 12MP f/1.7 sensor. Front facing camera is also a single 16MP sensor.

While it has kept away from dual camera sensors, it has not hesitated to do away with the 3.5mm audio jack. Nevertheless, there is a USB-C port and Bluetooth 4.2 (which should become 5.0 with the coming Oreo update) for connectivity. Battery capacity for the U11 is 3000mAh.
