It’s been almost six 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. Those with the older HTC 10 can finally join devices like the HTC U11 in the winner’s circle. Well, some of them anyway.
Sprint HTC 10 customers! We have received the Oreo OS approval from the carrier! OTA to start from tomorrow. Thanks!

According to Mo Versi from HTC, the phone is now receiving Android 8.0 Oreo via an over-the-air update, but only the Sprint model. Those with other carrier models will still need to wait before the update is approved by their carrier and pushed out over-the-air. The unlocked model was supposed to receive the update last month, but it was quickly pulled. We’ll have to wait and see when other models will get a taste of Oreo.
