HTC 10 update tracker (Update: Oreo rolling out to unlocked devices)


Update: HTC is now rolling out the Android Oreo update to the HTC 10, according to reports from Android Police and Android developer/leaker @LlabTooFeR. The update is hitting the US unlocked devices with software version 3.16.617.2, and its RUU is also available for download separately (some users are reporting errors when trying to install it manually, though).

The update includes all the expected Oreo features like picture-in-picture mode, improved notifications and instant apps, and comes in at about 1.8 GB. Meanwhile, LlabTooFeR also threw out speculation that the European HTC 10 would get Oreo within the next 3-5 weeks.

As for individual carrier updates, these should follow in the coming weeks, but note that there was more than a two-month gap between T-Mobile and Verizon updates last year, so you could be waiting some time.

HTC 10 Android Oreo update

The HTC 10 began to receive Android Nougat back in November, making HTC one of the first manufacturers to roll it out. Though the device isn’t the company priority that it was last year, HTC has done a good job at getting the Oreo rollout started in January—it’s beat some other manufacturer’s who are yet to get it to their current flagships.

Reports came in on January 11 that the Oreo update was hitting unlocked devices, but we’re still waiting to hear about carrier-branded handsets. More soon.
