Android O coming for the HTC U11, November 2 event not for the U11 Plus
Android Oreo may have launched just about two months ago but updates have been few and far between, with the only devices running on the latest version of Android at the moment being the Pixel and Nexus devices, the Xperia XZ1 and XZ1 Compact, and the Mate 10 flagships, with all but a select few being launched on Oreo, as opposed to receiving OTA updates.
OEMs like HMD and OnePlus are close to releasing updates to Oreo, though, as both already having functional versions of the release. HTC looks to be the next one to join that prestigious list, with the Twitter sources claiming that the U11 update to Oreo is currently in the final stages of development—a November, or early December release being a strong possibility.
The U11 was released earlier in the year and will be succeeded by the larger U11 Plus. The U11 Plus will sport a 6-inch WQHD display, up to 6 GB of RAM, up to 128 GB of storage, IP68 certification, and a 3930 mAh battery. Information had it slated for a November 2 launch but Twitter leaker Evan Blass has claimed that the event is meant for the U11 Life, HTC's upcoming Android One device, and not the U11 Plus as previously thought.
