It's released in phases so it might take a few days for the deployment process to complete.

However, his tweet mentioned that only the unlocked variant of the U11 will be updated to Oreo.

Unfortunately, he didn't share any specific in terms of dates, but now that it's rolling out for the HTC U11, we can only hope that it will reach more HTC handsets and carrier-locked devices soon. The U11 runs a almost stock version of Android 7.1.1 and has some pretty powerful internals (such as the Snapdragon 835 SoC, 6GB RAM and 12MP rear camera) along with some useful gimmicky features (such as the "squeezable" Edge Sense and multiple AI-based assistants).

Mo Versi, the company's VP of product management, recently announced the news in a tweet.

With HTC's own Oreo build for the U11 now being ready for deployment, the company's wireless carrier partners are also already in the process of optimizing their own versions of the firmware and should begin distributing them in the coming months. The twitter thread that ensued after the revelation opened doors towards the possible launch of the OS on many other HTC sets as well in the future. It is still unknown whether the update rollout started in other regions or not. Soon after that, Android Oreo update was rolled out to the users of the smartphone in Taiwan.

If you had a chance to try out the V30 Oreo beta, do let us know about the experience in comments.

Users of HTC U11 will also enjoy the generic ability of the Android Oreo OS to limit the background activity that is generated through the least used applications. The smartphone now runs on Android 7.1.2 Nougat operating system. He also stated that HTC U Ultra and HTC 10 will be updated to Android Oreo while replying to a comment.
