When the HTC U11 Life was released last month, it came in two variants – an Android One version for Europe and the rest of the world that ran Android 8.0 Oreo out of the box, and a Sense version for the US that ran Android 7.1.1 Nougat.
HTC promised it would release an Android 8.0 Oreo update for the US variant within 30 days and it has kept to its promise. The Taiwanese manufacturer began pushing out the Android Oreo OTA to the unlocked version of the phone today.
The T-Mobile version has not received the update yet and there is no news as to when it will do so. This shouldn’t come as a surprise as carriers are usually known to delay updates.
The HTC U11 Life is a mid-ranger that packs a 5.2” FHD display, 3GB of RAM, and 32GB of storage. There is a Snapdragon 630 chip and a 2600mAh battery under the plastic body.
It has a 16MP rear camera that can record in 4K and a 16MP front camera that records at 1080p. The phone also has an IP67-rating but doesn’t have an audio jack. Not that it needs to sacrifice one feature for the other though.
