HTC U11, Sony Xperia XZ, XZs, and X Performance Now Getting Android 8.0 Oreo

The HTC U11 smartphone was launched officially in June 2017 with the Android 7.1 Nougat operating system by default, but now users can update to Android 8.0 Oreo, which brings numerous new features and improvements, including Picture-in-Picture, notification dots, Android instant apps, and over 60 new emoji. It would appear that HTC U11 is among the first mobile phones not backed by Google to receive the Android 8.0 Oreo software update, which HTC’s Mo Versi confirmed on Twitter that it’s also coming to the HTC 10, HTC Ultra, and the recently unveiled HTC U11 Life smartphones, but no official date was set.
