It isn’t clear what additional features HTC U11 users get with the Android Oreo update. It is clear though that the users will get to experience these Android Oreo features including the popular ones include Picture-in-Picture mode, which allows you to watch a video and use another app at the same time. Android Oreo will also bring access to features like Notification Dots, Notification Channels, Android Instant Apps, and Autofill for passwords.

HTC U11 users will also get Oreo’s feature that limits the smartphone s background activity for the least used apps. Android Oreo will also optimize the smartphone to save battery.

Back in August, HTC had confirmed that it would soon roll out Android Oreo update for the HTC 10, U11 and the U Ultra. A new smartphone has been added to the list, which is the recently launched U11 Life. The HTC U11 Life with Android 8.0 Oreo out-of-the-box is available for global markets except in the US. Here, the smartphone ships with Android 7.1 Nougat. Launched along with the U11 Life, the U11+ runs on Android 8.0 Oreo out-of-the-box.
