Android 9.0 Pie confirmed for the HTC U12+ and U11 series, launch date still unknown
Now that Android 9.0 Pie is finally official, we are facing a lot of reports about this update's arrival for various handsets that have been around for a while. While the brands like Nokia, Vivo, or Huawei should update most of their recently released handsets — including budget devices and mid-rangers — to Android Pie, Samsung has recently announced a delay of the Android 8.0 Oreo update for such handsets, which should get the previous major Android version in early 2019. Fortunately, HTC has just confirmed that some of its devices will receive Android Pie.
The message recently posted on Twitter by HTC reads the following: "We're pleased as pie to confirm updates to Android Pie for the HTC U12+, U11+, U11, and U11 life (Android One). Timeframes for roll-out will be announced in due course."
In addition to the handsets mentioned above, HTC will probably deliver Android 9.0 Pie to other devices as well, but the confirmations should arrive in the coming weeks. When asked about the Oreo update for the HTC Bolt, for example, the company replied by saying that those interested should watch the social media feeds or contact the support department.
The last paragraph of HTC's Twitter message that we partially quoted earlier contains an invitation that we would like to forward to you as well: "We can't wait to know what you think of Google's freshest slice of Android!" These being said, don't be shy and let us know what you think about Google's fresh pie in the comments.
