Last month, we published a piece on HTC's failure to release the Pie update to any of its non-Android One phones, including its flagships from well over a year ago. The company appears to have taken heed, though, and has now released a concrete schedule for its Pie rollout.
The Taiwanese company officially posted on Twitter that its flagship line would receive the Pie update very soon. The HTC U11, released about two years ago, will get the Pie update later this month. The U11+, released in late 2017, will start getting the update in late June, while the U12+, HTC's flagship for last year, will get the Pie update in mid-June.
While this is tardy of HTC for multiple reasons—for one, the Android Q beta is months old already at this point—it's still positive news, especially for those that bought the aforementioned devices. The company doesn't seem to have any plans of releasing a successor to the U12+ anytime, and there's a high chance the U12+ is the last real HTC flagship we'll ever get.
