Recently released the final assembly of Android 9 Pie, which immediately began to arrive on Google Pixel smartphones. On the same day, Essential released an appropriate update on the Essential Phone, and Huawei confirmed that it is working on an update for its devices. Now Taiwanese HTC has decided to please owners of its flagship products.
According to the company, updates will receive smartphones HTC U11, U11 Plus, U11 Life and U12 Plus, issued respectively in 2017 and 2018. It is not clear whether the manufacturer plans to offer new clothes for other products: those produced earlier or belonging to a lower class – but the four mentioned flagships are guaranteed to receive a “cherry pie”.
Unfortunately, it is not yet clear when exactly the update will be released – HTC does not say anything about it. In other words, at best, weeks can pass, and at worst months. It is possible that U11 life, released as part of the Android One program, will be the first in the list, because we are talking about the reference environment of Android and HTC does not need to finalize its software for him.
However, given that some of the average Samsung, according to the Korean company, will receive an update based on last year’s Android 8 Oreo only in 2019, the waiting time may well drag on. HTC, however, promises to soon name more accurate dates and says that she is eager to know the users’ opinion about the “fresh sweetness” from Google, which can be interpreted in favor of the soonest release of firmware.
