Google has revealed the upcoming version of its Android platform, earlier this week, called as 'Android Oreo.' Just after the release of Google's next Android OS, the smartphone companies have started confirming which of their phones will be getting the new release.
BlackBerry was first to confirm Android Oreo to their KEYOne, and now it's HTC has confirmed update to Android Oreo. In a tweet, HTC mentioned the HTC U11, the HTC U Ultra and the HTC 10 would get the update to Android Oreo worldwide. The tweet also confirms a global roll out, so no one will be left behind, as reported by GSM Arena.
However, there was no word on when exactly the update will start hitting these devices. HTC mentioned that details regarding this and other handsets that will be getting Oreo will be announced soon. Recently, the Taiwan smartphone maker has also added ability to record 1080p resolution at 60fps and support for Bluetooth 5.0 with the latest update to the HTC U11 smartphone.
HTC has been one of the fastest manufacturers to roll out the previous build of OS, Android Nougat so far. The company has 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, as reported by Android Authority.
To recall, HTC launched its U11 smartphone at a price of INR 51,990 (MOP). The variant launched comes 6GB of RAM and 128GB of internal storage. The highlight feature on the U11 is the Edge Sense feature, which allows users to perform various functions with the smartphone by simply squeezing it from the sides. The company has also recently added the Amazon Alexa Assistant support to HTC U11 in the US.
