LG rolls out Android Oreo Beta for V30 & V30

HTC U11 is finally getting the Android 8.0 Oreo update on 27 November

It is an indication that the major Android update will soon be available for users around the globe.

A couple of weeks ago, HTC U11 was spotted on Geekbench with Android Oreo. He tweeted stating that "OS update will be available for download" "starting on Monday".

If you've already been able to dip into Android's Oreo, there's a good chance you're using one of Google's flagship Pixel phones. His post notably mentions that only the unlocked version of the HTC U11 will be receiving the promotion to Oreo starting from November 27. Well, it's worth noting that Mo looks after the America region for HTC, hence, this update will only roll out to the unlocked U11 in the USA, and, there's no specific date for when the U11 will get the Oreo update in other regions. HTC did promise its release but we weren't sure when exactly the update would be ready.

This upgrade means that U11 users will get all the Oreo-centric features that are part of the latest Android version. Mo also said HTC is working with Sprint to get the Oreo update out to U11 owners on that carrier "as quickly as possible".


To remind you, Android 8.0 Oreo includes picture-in-picture support, autofill for passwords, notification dots, redesigned emojis, adaptive icons, faster boot times and more. While we didn't hear anything from HTC itself, we knew other markets would follow soon.

Meanwhile, the Nokia 5 and 6 Series are now running on Android 7.1.1 Nougat and available and are already available in India.

Currently, the only other HTC phones that feature Android Oreo are the newly launched U11 Life and U11 Plus.
