HTC kicks off the stable Oreo update to the U11.

HTC said it'll roll out Oreo to the U11 before the end of the year, and while it didn't specify a timeline, the update was expected sometime this month. The company is now kicking off the Android 8.0 Oreo update to the device, starting with the Taiwanese variant. The OTA update comes in at 1.3GB, and includes VoWifi service for Chunghwa Telecom customers in Taiwan.

The Oreo update introduces the latest iteration of HTC's Sense UI, and while most interface elements have remained largely unchanged, you do get the rotary menu, "squircle" icons, and notification dots.
