Last month HTC began rolling out the Android 8.0 Oreo update for unlocked HTC U11 handsets, and the good news is that if you don’t own the HTC U11 but rather the HTC U11 Life, it looks like the update is now headed your way, assuming that you bought your handset from T-Mobile.

In a tweet by the HTC USA account, they have announced that the Oreo update is rolling out to T-Mobile users who own the HTC U11 Life. The tweet reads, “The Android 8.0 Oreo update is now available for T-Mobile editions of the HTC U11 life. It’s a big update, so you must be on WiFi before attempting to download. Enjoy!”

Note that the HTC U11 Life was actually launched with Android Oreo and Android One in other markets that the handset was available in, but for some reason it was launched with Android 7.0 Nougat when it found its way to the US with a promise that it would eventually be updated to Oreo, and we guess that time is now.

The Oreo update should bring about the usual host of improvements and changes that one might expect from the Oreo update along with some HTC tweaks, so do keep an eye out for it on your handset if you haven’t been notified about it already.
