Android 8 Oreo update for HTC 10, U11 and U Ultra confirmed

Android 8 Oreo update for HTC 10, U11 and U Ultra confirmed”

Pixel and Nexus users will be among the first to get the new update, which is not surprising at all. Developers tinkering with the developer releases of Android Oreo have found evidence suggesting that Google may finally be willing to implement a powerful theming engine in stock Android, and now we have further evidence in support for this.

Oreo boasts several new features, including the ability to respond to notifications directly on a phone's home screen and the ability to access apps without installing them on a device.

Lastly, the HTC 10, launched running Android 6.0 Marshmallow out-of-the-box, now runs on Android 7.0 Nougat that HTC roll out through an over-the-air update.

The first from the list, HTC U11, now runs on Android 7.1 Nougat out-of-the-box with HTC Sense UI atop, whereas HTC U Ultra now operates on Android 7.0 Nougat with HTC Sense UI atop. Along with a number of other such changes and features, Android 8.0 Oreo also brings the support for system-wide themes without the need for a root. Autofill framework allows automatic log-in for apps where users have granted permission in Android Oreo. This means that companies can start customising the Android 8.0 Oreo in accordance with their device's UI styling.

As of now, few settings like the option to change the shape of icons and Google wallpapers are not seen on a few devices, hopefully, this might be rectified in the upcoming updates. Expect more to be revealed in the coming weeks and months as more people use it and as Google devs continue to work on the new version.
