Google released Android 9.0 (Pie) earlier this week for its Pixel devices and also said that it is working with several OEMs to roll out the update. Now HTC has confirmed Pie update for its flagship smartphones, including the HTC U11 that was introduced running Android 7.1 (Nougat). It is also the first company to confirm the update for several devices.
We’re pleased as pie to confirm updates to Android Pie for the HTC U12+, U11+, U11, and U11 life (Android One). Timeframes for roll-out will be announced in due course.

The company updated HTC 10 to Android Oreo, even though it was launched running Android 6.0 (Marshmallow), looks like it is not getting the Android Pie update.
Android Pie comes with lots of new features and improvements including navigation gestures, Adaptive Battery that uses machine learning to prioritize system resources for the apps, App Actions, and more.
But it is unfortunate, although it has confirmed that the update will be present for some of its latest smartphone series, but HTC still has not provided detailed information regarding the time of the update. HTC only says that the release time will post indeed updates that are ready to be rolled out (most likely, a few weeks before the update is rolled out).
HTC is in the near future itself, because every year their income continues to be even losers. HTC’s current position is similar to Sony, it’s just that Sony has a good fortune because of its flagship smartphone series for the market (only for a moment) like the Xperia XZ Premium series which has some time and been awarded as the best new smartphone. Much different from Xiaomi and Oppo received in the Indonesian smartphone market.
So what are we waiting for, which smartphone will be updated with an android pie or maybe you have bagged or have information on one of the HTC phones that will get privacy for Android Pie?
