Now that the sweet, cream-filled cat is finally out of the bag, we’ve no doubt that many of you who own Android phones are wondering when exactly you will get your own Android O software update. Though Google itself has been quite upfront that its currently available flagship devices, such as the Google Pixel and Google Pixel C, will be the first to get the update to Android O, there are lots of other flagship OEM models that deserve to get the new software.
So where will it land first outside of Google’s offerings? According to the original announcement, it’s scheduled to appear in various devices at least by the end of this year at the earliest. And one of the many OEMs mentioned in Google’s post is Taiwan-based company HTC. Now we have official confirmation from HTC itself that it will indeed deliver Oreo to its userbase. The best part? Even the old HTC 10 will be in on the action.
Over on Twitter, user Rouge (@stovejeeebs) went and asked HTC USA if Oreo is coming to the HTC 10. HTC USA quickly replied with the following:
We're excited to bring Android Oreo to HTC U11, HTC U Ultra, and HTC 10 owners worldwide! Details & additional devices to be announced soon.

This confirms that not only is Oreo headed for the HTC 10, but also for newer devices like the HTC U11 and HTC U Ultra. Interestingly, there’s no mention of the HTC U Play. Perhaps they couldn’t fit it into the 160 character tweet limit?
In any case, HTC says the Oreo update for its aforementioned phones will be rolled out globally. So even though the HTC official that commented on this bit of news happens to be from the USA, HTC users in the Philippines will also stand to benefit from it.SOURCE
