Last year, the company rolled out Android Oreo update for its last year's flagship smartphone HTC U11. The Android 8.0 update has been released for the unlocked version of the HTC 10 smartphone. The update is now being rolled out in phases via OTA (over the air) to the unlocked units of HTC 10.
At the end of December 2017, the Android 8.0 Oreo update was rolled out for Xiaomi Mi A1 Android One smartphone that was launched in September a year ago. The Taiwanese phone maker had promised to upgrade its 2016 flagship to Android Oreo in August previous year.
HTC 10 has started receiving Android 8.0 Oreo update, according to a report in Android Police.
If you own the HTC 10 in the United States, you should be seeing a notification for the new software update. Other than that, the update is expected to include the latest Android security patch as well.
However, if you want to install the update right now without waiting for Xiaomi to begin the second phase of the rollout, you can head to Mi Community and download the Fastboot ROM to update the device manually. There is another way, using which you can install the data. It is recommended to backup data before downloading the RUU package, as the process wipes data on the phone.
As stated, the HTC 10 was launched back in April 2016 with Android 6.0 Marshmallow. The smartphone features a 5.5-inch full HD display, and is powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 625 octa-core SoC paired with 4GB of RAM and 64GB onboard storage. A standard 3,000mAh non-removable battery runs the entire package and it also features a front-mounted fingerprint scanner.
