Sony Xperia X is getting Android 8.0 Oreo update

HTC U11

It is worth adding that bringing Android 8.0 Oreo to HTC U11 also makes the company third OEM after OnePlus and Nokia to bring the new OS version to its users. In the reply thread to his tweet, Mo confirms that the U11 Life will also get the Oreo update.

Sony has started rolling out Android 8.0 Oreo update for its flagship devices, the Xperia XZ and Xperia XZs. However, this update will only be available for users who have the unlocked variant of the smartphone. The smartphone was launched with Android 6.0 Marshmallow and it was upgraded to Android Nougat towards the end of 2016. This will include the Picture-in-Picture mode for better productivity, passwords auto-fill and Smart text selection, which automatically converts addresses and phone number texts into clickable links that will directly open Maps or the phone dialer.

Earlier this year, HTC revealed its Android 8.0 update plans, and tomorrow we'll see the first Oreo update from HTC begin rolling out. His post notably mentions that only the unlocked version of the HTC U11 will be receiving the promotion to Oreo starting from November 27. While updating your device to the next level of Android, you may lose your data and images, so we advise you to store your valuable data on a hard drive. HTC's Vice President of Product Management, Mo Versi has confirmed the rollout news on Twitter and even said that they're working with carriers such as Sprint to roll out the update as quickly as possible.

The HTC U11 is a great smartphone, but it didn't receive enough attention from the consumers in the country.

Has your unlocked U11 gotten the update yet? Sony is also throwing in some of its in-house features like Xperia Actions and Reminders.
