These 3 HTC Devices are Getting Android Oreo

Android-Oreo-theme

Ideally, users should not root their phones because stock Android is enough.

The new update is reported to improve mobile device efficiency and user experience - generally polishing the Nougat 7.0. As a result, the newly updated launcher can now be downloaded on more phones aside from the Google Pixel lineup. The U11 will be the first smartphone to the update first in the upcoming weeks.

This is one of the biggest steps by Google and it will be making a huge impact on the company's product line.

Android and customizability are pretty much synonymous.

The company said in a news release, however, that it and Google will partner on a "variety of global initiatives designed to create innovative, playful experiences for both OREO and Android fans". Once you're done setting up your phone to support this feature, every time you open an app that requires login fields to be filled, Android Oreo will automatically retrieve the password from the database and you can simply authenticate the login with your pin or fingerprint. Theming of third-party applications, custom fonts for third-party applications, and other modifications are also possible now.


HTC has just confirmed Android Oreo (Android 8.0) timeline for its smartphones.

Google's Android Oreo is little away from show-off, but it brings many things the Android ecosystem needed.
