List Of HTC Devices Getting Android Oreo Update | Android 8.0
HTC recently faced a huge loss in its sales and this streak has been continuing for the past 8 quarters. So, HTC might not be involved in the process of updating its older devices released 2 or more years ago.
Therefore HTC Flagship and mid range devices that are released in the past 1 year or so might be updated to Android Oreo 8.0
HTC also announced recently that it would be updating the HTC U11, HTC U Ultra, and HTC 10 devices worldwide to the latest version of Android Oreo 8.0. So, as of now, these 3 flagship devices are sure to get the update.
Apart from these recently launched devices, the HTC U Play, HTC Desire 10 Pro, HTC Desire 10 Lifestyle, HTC 10 Evo are also expected to be updated to Android Oreo.
However, the update might not roll anytime soon and it might take at least 3 months for the roll out to begin. This is because HTC has to modify and optimize the stock Android version to be compatible with its devices.
So, you might expect the Android Oreo update to reach your HTC device anytime between the December of this year or January of 2018. But the developers might launch a Custom ROM or an AOSP based software update for Android Oreo for the HTC devices much earlier.
