HTC is a manufacturer that has always stood out for offering a good level of software. They are not the closest thing to pure Android but they do offer good performance.
At the level of updates are quite irregular, while in their new devices do have updates in a short time, many of the mid-range are abandoned.
The HTC U Ultra has been upgraded to Android 8.0 Oreo. We are, for those who do not remember, the high-end mobile of the Taiwanese manufacturer in early 2017. That is the direct rival of the Galaxy S8 or the LG G6.
Although the truth is that its specifications already at the time of the presentation were slightly behind the competition.
The HTC U Ultra is a large terminal, with a 5.7-inch screen and a Snapdragon 821 processor. We have 3,000mAh and a design that in the images had a great appearance but in hand gave us a plastic sensation.
Fortunately with the HTC U11 that was improved
Current users are happy with the software due to its stability, although the autonomy could give more than itself. The current version is Android 7.0 Nougat with HTC Sense.
Now the update to Oreo has been released from Taiwan and India. Software version 2.19.400.1 and a weight of 1.32GB.
The update to Oreo incorporates the classic new features of version 8.0, including PiP mode, notification channels, and adaptive icons. In the case of the HTC U Ultra comes next to the security patch of January.
Some users in Europe have already detected that they have skipped the update via OTA. If you are a user of an HTC U Ultra, our recommendation is that you stay tuned for the next few days.
