HTC U11, U12+ will get Android Pie updates starting this month

Android Pie has been out since August of 2018, but it’s still only on a fraction of devices. Some OEMs are being slow about pushing the update out to devices, and HTC is a pretty huge offender here. Recently, however, the company confirmed Android Pie updates for the HTC U11 family and the U12+.

Android Oreo is starting to roll out to the HTC U11, starting with Taiwan

A few months after its public debut and rollout on Google’s devices, Android Oreo still hasn’t seen all that much expansion.

Although it may not have the slimmest bezels around, the HTC U11 has proven to be one of the most underrated flagships of 2017.

Pre-order the 6GB/128GB HTC U11 tonight at 12am ET for $729

The HTC U11 was released back in May with many praising it for its Pixel-level performance and its highly reflective glass backing. The only issue with it, for those who prefer copious amounts of storage, is that the handset only came with 64GB of built-in memory. Although there is a microSD card slot available to expand this, HTC will soon offer a 128GB U11 with 6GB of RAM for just $80 more than the base model…

There are a lot of core aspects that make up a good phone, and HTC’s latest U11 definitely nails those. However, when you’re going past that, you’re left with gimmicks. The biggest of those is headlined by the “Edge Sense” feature that performs actions when you physically squeeze your phone.

HTC has a pretty solid phone on its hands with the HTC U11, but it didn’t get everything right. At launch, the company showed off a few different colors for the phone, but only black, silver, and blue went on sale.
