HTC confirms HTC 10, HTC U Ultra and HTC U11 will get Android Oreo


Even though Android Nougat isn’t on every device yet and the majority of Filipinos are still waiting for Marshmallow, eyes are now turning towards its recently revealed successor, Android 8.0 Oreo. The new software arrived earlier this week so you can expect to hear lots of device updates in the coming months.

We already have some ideas as to which phones will get the Android 8.0 Oreo update and when, but HTC has been one of the fastest out of the gates to deliver a hard confirmation. In a tweet sent out yesterday by @stovejeeebs, HTC wrote that the HTC U11, the HTC U Ultra and the HTC 10 would all get the update to Android Oreo worldwide.

These devices are pretty obvious choices as far as HTC’s updates are concerned, HTC won't let its flagships hanging on the line.

Still, the confirmation is welcome, especially with regards to the HTC 10. This launched with Marshmallow in 2016, and though it should be obvious that it will receive two major upgrades, that doesn’t always happen.

For this reason, we’re also pleased that HTC states that the updates will roll out worldwide, not just in certain regions.

HTC has been one of the fastest manufacturers to roll out Android Nougat updates so far and pushed it out to its HTC 10 in just over 90 days; there appears to be no reason why it can’t deliver Oreo in a timely manner also, but it hasn’t yet provided a timeline.
