The HTC U11+ was released over eighteen months ago and has yet to receive a single major OS update. In fact, the company's 2018 flagship, the U12+, hasn't received a major update either. The Taiwanese company has finally published concrete information on its plans to update those devices, though.

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.

I like tech, simple as. Half the time, you can catch me writing snarky sales copy. The rest of the time, I'm either keeping readers abreast with the latest happenings in the mobile tech world or watching football. I worked as both a journo and freelance content writer for a couple of years before joining the Notebookcheck team in 2017. Feel free to shoot me some questions on Twitter or Reddit if it so tickles thine fancy.
