Unlocked HTC 10 finally starts receiving Android 8.0 Oreo update

HTC is one of the companies that still delivers major Android OS update despite its financial difficulties. Most of the company's flagship smartphones launched last year have already been updated to Android 8.0 Oreo, so now it's time for HTC to focus on slightly older devices.

It looks like HTC has picked the 2016 flagship to be the next handset to receive the highly-anticipated update. If you own an unlocked HTC 10 bought in the US, you should tap the “Check now” button and see if your smartphone is eligible for an Android 8.0 Oreo update.

Keep in mind that this is a sizable update at 1.8GB, so make sure you have enough storage and your battery is at least half charged. The probably comes with December security patch as well, but you'll probably be more excited to try out some of the new features that come with Android 8.0 Oreo.

It's yet unclear if Android 8.0 Oreo will be the last major software update received by the HTC 10, but the Taiwanese company is likely to clarify it once Google unveils Android P.

I admire how HTC is still doing the right thing even though everyone knows they are bleeding cash by the minute. Hopefully they will bounce back soon.

The U11+ is one of the best phones in 2017, and imo it has the 2nd best camera behind the Pixel 2. I just hope they go with OLED for their 2018 flagships, and as you said, hopefully things will get much better for them.

one of the best phone with huge flaws: unacceptable dim screen, and very sub-par battery life. I don't own a U11+ but pretty much dozens of professional reviewers claim those flaws.

What do you mean by "finally"? It's a 1.5 years old, and it still received an official Oreo build before my Note 8 did. Hell, it's even faster than my old Essential Phone, that is running on stock Android.

Don't take PA journalists serious. They know nothing about android, devices and current update status. There is reason why people call this site PhoneArena.

Finally? Hardly any other devices have it yet.

Do I detect a hint of bias? The phone is nearly 2 years old at this point and it received 8.0 before many other phones.

Exactly! Even the year-old S8 is still on Oreo beta. HTC and Motorola are always first in updating their software.
