The unlocked HTC U11
has already been updated to Android 8.0 Oreo last year, but only in the United States. About two weeks ago
HTC confirmed the roll-out began in the EMEA region, but carrier-branded devices will probably have to wait a bit longer.
If you've bought your HTC U11
from Sprint, you'll be pleased to know the carrier will start rolling out the Android 8.0 Oreo update on January 22. Mo Versi, HTC's VP of Product Management has just announced customers who own the Sprint HTC 11 devices should start seeing the update on Monday.
Sprint HTC u11 owners! Appreciate your patience, we have received technical approval from the carrier. Updates to Oreo OS will start on Monday! Enjoy!
Although this is a staged update, it shouldn't take more than a few days for Sprint to complete the roll-out process, so make sure to check for Android Oreo on your HTC U11
early next week.
