HTC initialized a roll-out of Android Pie for a 2017 phone, the U11, in May 2019. However, not all users were served with this update before it was suspended due to technical issues. It seems the OEM has rectified them, as U11 owners in Europe have reported the successful installation of this update.

HTC has finally un-paused its distribution of Android Pie for its 2017 flagship, the U11. The OEM had originally planned to start this roll-out in May 2019. However, multiple reports of soft-bricks as a result of its installation forced the Taiwanese manufacturer to hold this new version of Sense based on Android 9.0 back while its bugs were hunted down and exterminated.

It now appears that this project has reached fruition, as users outside HTC's native country have found that they can now update their phones. These U11 owners are located in Europe.

Thus far, the upgrade has mainly been observed in Belgium, Italy and Switzerland. However, one or two users in other countries such as the United Kingdom have also claimed to see the relevant notification.

Android Pie for the U11 is not much different from that for other recent HTC phones. Apart from some system-level enhancements and the obvious major OS upgrade, the new software removes vestigial links to the now-defunct Google Plus from the Sense UI launcher.
