HTC already said back in August that they were bringing the Android Oreo to the U11, specifically in the fourth quarter of the year. And it seems like the company might be staying true to their word. Twitter tipster LlabTooFeR claims the update is in its final stages of development and will being rolling out between November and early December time frame. HTC hasn’t confirmed the report.

Aside from the U11, the HTC U Ultra and HTC 10 are going to receive Android 8.0 update, too. However, there is no word yet when the update will be coming to these devices.

Huawei Mate 10 will run on Android Oreo out of the box

As with most new flagships coming out, we rightfully expect the Huawei Mate 10 to run the latest Android version out of the box. And we aren’t going to be disappointed. Huawei just confirmed on its Weibo account (a Chinese microblogging site similar to Twitter) that the upcoming Mate 10 will run Android 8.0 Oreo out of the box. The short clip showed the AI-focused chipset Huawei is equipping the Mate 10 with has the company’s logo and Android Oreo mascot alongside each other. An accompanying text reads: “Equipped with Android 8.0 to give you a better Android experience. With the powerful combination on October 16 #HuaweiMate10 #Munich.”

Essential Phone will get Android Oreo update within two months

The Essential Phone just recently launched (you’ve probably seen photos on our Instagram) and the company has great news for those who got the phone, it’ll be getting Android Oreo pretty soon. According to Rebecca Zavin, vice president for software at Essential, the update is coming “in the next month or two.” She made the announcement on a Reddit AMA she had with Essential’s founder Andy Rubin and three other execs from the company.

Aside from that, they announced that, they are working on a high-end audio accessory that comes with a 3.5mm headset jack. Just like its other accessories, this will connect through the two magnetic pins at the back of the device. Now, you might question why didn’t Essential just put the headset jack on the phone in the first place? Dave Evans, the VP of design for Essential, said that would’ve resulted in putting a bigger bottom bezel under the screen, reducing the battery capacity by 10 percent, or having a big bump to accommodate the jack. They weren’t comfortable with the tradeoffs so they didn’t put it in.
