HTC 10 to receive its Android Oreo update in January 2018

When Android Oreo was announced, HTC was one of the first OEMs to come forward with a list of devices that will receive Android Oreo. Although the list didn’t mention all the devices and HTC still hasn’t updated the list, the three devices that were lucky to receive the special treatment included this year’s HTC U11 and HTC U Ultra and last year’s HTC 10.

While HTC hasn’t revealed any information about the expected release date of Android Oreo 8.0, earlier today, we reported that HTC U11 will receive Android Oreo by November end or early December.

It was already known that HTC 10 won’t receive Oreo update this year as there are 2 devices, U11 and U Ultra first in line. Now according to the same source that confirmed HTC U11 Oreo update, which happens to be an HTC leaker LlabTooFeR, HTC has no plans to release Oreo update for HTC 10 this year, which means HTC will release Oreo update in first quarter 2018, most probably in January.

HTC 10 was launched with Android Marshmallow and Android Nougat 7.1.1 currently powers HTC 10. Android Oreo 8.0 will bring some new features to the device such as auto-fill for apps, night mode, picture in picture mode, new emojis and other great features that you can check here.

Meanwhile, Sony has created history again by becoming the first OEM to push Android Oreo update to an existing handset. Sony has started rolling out Android 8.0 Oreo update for Xperia XZ Premium starting today.

Very soon, we will hear the news about Oreo update from these OEMs too.  Interestingly, we have seen few firmware leaks too.
