These 3 HTC Devices are Getting Android Oreo

The U11 will be the first smartphone to the update first in the upcoming weeks.

HTC has confirmed that Android 8 Oreo will be making its way to at least three of its handsets - U11, U Ultra and 10 - by the end of the year. It is called Android Oreo as many smartphone geeks suspected.

But, folks at Substratum seem to have found a way to get these themes work on any device that's on Android 8.0 Oreo without having to root it. Oreo is pretty much the only choice for an "O" dessert that's broadly and instantly recognizable, however, so it seems like it was nearly inevitable.


There is also now Android Instant Apps, which provide access to apps instantly without requiring a download for limited interactivity.

Another tweet mentioned that the update will be rolled out to all the HTC users worldwide. While there were not many new features added to Android Oreo, the 8th instalment of Google's mobile OS, one new feature added to it was really useful and cool.

For instance, if you receive a new email, you can view the notification by long pressing on the Gmail app icon and even open or dismiss it from here and the same notification will also be dismissed from the notification panel. Updates usually mean better and more efficient phones when it comes to system operation, but is this truly the case with Android 8.0 Oreo? Autofill framework allows automatic log-in for apps where users have granted permission in Android Oreo. That still needs root but with Android Oreo, it's possible that you don't have to root just to get it. The update introduced few system enhancements but does not bring along any noticeable change.
