HTC U11 will get its Android 8.0 Oreo update before 2018 begins

Shortly after confirming that three of its smartphones will be updated to Android 8.0 Oreo, HTC today revealed that one of those handsets would receive the update starting the fourth quarter of the year (October - December). Unsurprisingly, the handset in question is the U11, HTC's current flagship phone, launched in May with Android Nougat on board.
After being released for the U11, Android Oreo will be made available for the HTC U Ultra and HTC 10 (probably starting early 2018). Other HTC devices might also be updated to Android 8.0 at some point. However, for now, HTC doesn't have anything else to share on the matter.
Alongside various improvements that aren't immediately visible, Android Oreo brings novelties like adaptive icons, a revamped settings menu, enhanced notifications, and a customizable navigation bar.

"Hey guys, we promise that the One A9 will get updates within 15 days of release!" Never trust HTC when they talk about updates.

I guess that's why I switched to the iPhone... I mean, I really loved all my android phones including the marvelous galaxy s7 edge but I guess it was the time for a change and also was tired of waiting so long for updates...
