It’s been almost 5 months since HTC first announced that devices like the HTC U11, HTC U Ultra, and the HTC 10 would be seeing an update to Android 8.0 Oreo. There was no ETA given but typically older devices get put on the back burner while most recent flagships get top priority. Oreo officially started rolling out to the unlocked HTC U11 in the U.S. in November, but Sprint was left behind.
The HTC U11 on Sprint is now receiving Android 8.0 Oreo via an over-the-air update. Finally. Mo Versi, a product manager at HTC, tweeted that they received technical approval from Sprint on Saturday and the update should start rolling out today (1/22). You can check your HTC U11 to see if the update is available now. Go enjoy some delicious Oreos!
