Mo Versi, HTC Vice President of Product Management, confirmed the rollout on Twitter over Thanksgiving. It starts today for those who bought their U11 outright, and HTC is working with carriers to get the release out to everyone else “as quickly as possible.”
Hope you all had a great Thanksgiving. The Oreo OS update will be available for download on the HTC U11 unlocked version starting on Monday! Enjoy!

Oreo for the U11 first started its roll-out a couple of weeks ago, beginning in HTC’s home country of Taiwan. The release brings all the Android 8.0 goodness you would expect, including more emoji, picture-in-picture, revamped quick settings, and lots more.
Versi also confirmed on Twitter that the HTC 10, U Ultra, and U11 Life will be getting Oreo updates. There is no release date for these yet, but he vows to let us know more “when we’re close.”
