By now you’re probably aware what new features will arrive with theAndroid Oreo update. In case you need a refresher, you can check out our full 8.0 reviewright here.
So far, there aren’t too many other Android phones running Oreo. According to the latest Android version distribution numbers, Oreo is only installed on .3% of all Android devices. All of Google’sPixel phones are running Oreo, as are theOnePlus 3/3T andNokia 8. There are also Oreo beta programs in place for a handful of other devices like theSamsung Galaxy S8, LG V30 , Essential Phone, andOnePlus 5, so we should see that .3% jump up quite a bit over the next couple months.
But what about HTC’s other devices? Back in August the company announced that theHTC U Ultra andHTC 10 will be updated to Oreo, though we don’t have any more details at this time.
If you own an unlocked U11, be sure to leave a comment when you receive your update. We’ll let you know when the update begins rolling out.
