The problem with Android phones is that because sometimes OEMs aren’t clear with their update schedules that it can feel like older devices are being ignored. However if you’re thinking of a new phone and you’re thinking about the future, the HTC U11 could be worth your consideration.

The handset was recently announced where it will come with Android Nougat, but according to the folks at Trusted Reviews, it seems that HTC has pretty much guaranteed that the handset will be on the receiving end of at least two more major Android updates in the future, which presumably are Android O (whose public beta is now open for registration) and Android P which will most likely be announced in 2018, assuming that Google doesn’t decide to ditch Android for ‘Fuschia’.

Confirmation of the updates came by way of HTC’s president of smartphones and connected devices, Chailin Chang, who said that the handset will receive updates to the next two versions of Android. Chang also adds, “We may extend support to the next three versions of Android. It will depend on the hardware and software demands of the version […] and if it will bring value to the consumer.”

However the question is when will they receive the update? Typically we’ve seen OEMs take several months to push out major updates, but hopefully Google’s Project Treble will help speed things along.
