HTC isn't dead yet, promises Android 9 updates this month

On the bright side, the rollout will begin before the second quarter of the year ends, as the company had promised before.

The latest tweet from HTC suggests that at least three HTC smartphones will receive Android 9 Pie update in June 2019. The next smartphone to get the update will be the U12 Plus smartphone followed by the U11 Plus in June. Similarly, other HTC phones will not be receiving the update either. "We will continue to provide quality pre-sales and after-sales service as always", HTC announced on Weibo, according to the Android Central. However, HTC has said the dates may vary in certain areas and on different carriers. As of now, there is only one HTC phone with Android Pie and that is U11 Life because it comes under Android One program.

However, HTC isn't ready to throw the towel just yet. There is another device named Exodus 1 focussed on cryptocurrency but it does not make the list though it is the very last phone launched by the company.

This Android 9 update is probably more of a gesture for existing users than a hint that the company will remain committed to smartphones in the long run.

The sales of HTC smartphones have been getting thinner from the a year ago, and the company wasn't making enough profit to stay afloat.
