HTC U11 finally tastes Android Oreo's sweetness

Sony Xperia XZs

HTC has started rolling out the Android 8.0 Oreo update for its high-end smartphone, the U11. The HTC U Ultra and the company's flagship smartphone from previous year, the HTC 10, will also receive the Oreo update.

HTC's Vice President of Product Management Mo Versi announced the news via his Twitter handle in the midst of Thanksgiving. The update will be rolled out over-the-air (OTA) and should eventually reach all devices.

For now, HTC will be rolling out Android 8.0 Oreo to unlocked HTC U11 smartphones in the US.

Sony is now pushing out Android 8.0 Oreo update to the Xperia X Performance. The smartphone was launched with Android 6.0 Marshmallow and it was upgraded to Android Nougat towards the end of 2016.

Vladimir Putin signs new Russian law for foreign media outlets
The Kremlin's principal worldwide propaganda outlet RT (formerly Russia Today ) has actively collaborated with WikiLeaks. RT routinely gives Assange sympathetic coverage and provides him a platform to denounce the United States.

With this update, the U11 users will get all the Android 8.0 Oreo features like the Smart text selection, Auto-fill, Picture-in-Picture mode, new Quick settings design and more.

With HTC's own Oreo build for the U11 now being ready for deployment, the company's wireless carrier partners are also already in the process of optimizing their own versions of the firmware and should begin distributing them in the coming months. The HTC U11 offers a 5.5-inch display, Snapdragon 835 chipset, 6GB of RAM, Adreno 540 GPU, 12MP rear camera, 16MP front-facing camera, runs Android Oreo, and a 3000mAh battery.

If you had a chance to try out the V30 Oreo beta, do let us know about the experience in comments.

The HTC U11 is a great smartphone, but it didn't receive enough attention from the consumers in the country. Sony is also throwing in some of its in-house features like Xperia Actions and Reminders.
