HTC U11 finally getting a bump to Android 9 Pie

HTC U11 finally getting a bump to Android 9 Pie

It is not every day we get to hear about HTC anymore, and it is a wonder to know that they are still in the smartphone game. While we have no idea if they are still going to give us some U-series devices in the future, they did promise to upgrade the existing U11 family to Android Pie.

That has been a long time coming and only the U11 Life got this push first – mainly because it was supported on the Android One program. Now, the same update has made it to the top tier model of the U11.

The company already stated that the update would start rolling out from the end of May, so they are making good on their promise even if they are late on the statement. If you would be getting this update, prepare for a 1.36GB download on your unit.

Note that HTC mentioned that the update will not be rolled out at the same time via different regions and carriers, so the size might be even more if your carrier has extra things to add.

Besides the upgrade to the Android 9 Pie, you also get system enhancements and ability to remove Google+ from your BlinkFeed. Afterall, Google itself has discontinued the service.

For now, only users in Taiwan are getting the update. You should sit tight for when it starts coming your way too.
