The selection of the three mentioned devices for Android O update was a given thing with HTC U11 and HTC 10 being 2017 and 2016 flagship product respectively. Also, HTC U Ultra is a device launched this year itself.

Surprisingly, another product from this year — the HTC U Play –didn’t find a mention in the list. However, we believe that the U Play and some other devices, probably those released in 2016 and 2017, should also get Oreo, as HTC has specifically mentioned that details about additional devices would be revealed later on.
