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. For a comprehensive look at the new version of the OS, you should check out our Android 8.0 Oreo review.

"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...

I always hear people talking highly about Apple's update speed. Is it really that good? I haven't been around the iPhone scene since 2011.

Cheers ~

Apparently some people prioritizes updates while completely disregarding all other aspects of a phone.
Different priorities I guess, we're all different after all.

Let's not jump to conclusion. We do not know these strangers personally, so we can not make assumptions. It is safe to say that Apple is known for their speedy updates and support, apparently.

The question still stands; is this still true at this point in time rather when I last was on iOS back in 2011?

Cheers ~

I actually never thought about the possibility to like iOS - as limited as it could sound - or the iPhone itself as, in my mind, was just an old piece of hardware.
I was using android since 2012, had all the flagships from Samsung and only God knows how I love their displays and camera modules (maybe what I miss the most about Samsung)
But since I had some issues with a galaxy s7 edge replacement unit I thought "why not?", and decided to try the iPhone thing...
I got the iPhone 7 and was surprised by the smoothness of the OS and a little upset about the battery life, so I moved to the iPhone 7 Plus and never looked back.
I do miss Samsung's both camera and display but I guess there are some quality and features about the iOS - like 3D Touch, smoothness and battery life (at least with the Plus model) that makes me want to stay with it...
And I'm absolutely not disregarding any aspect of android phones, as I said, I loved all my previous ones, but there's something about that system update bedge, if you know what I mean hahaha

I'd prefer to be stuck with an outdated Android OS rather than timely updates that render my phone more useless. iOS 9.3.5 made my past 4S suuuuper slow.
