HTC had announced the roll-out of Android 8.0 Oreo back in January for its HTC 10 units but it was made available only for unlocked units in the United States. The company had stopped the update due to some bugs issues. Now, the Taiwanese smartphone maker has confirmed the news on Twitter that it has begun the Android Oreo roll-out for Indian users.
The latest Android update also brings VoLTE support for Reliance Jio. The roll-out comes with an over-the-air (OTA) update and users who want to download the update can head to the Phone Setting option, and then select About Phone and Software Update. Once the download is completed, the smartphone will auto reboot and the phone will be ready with the latest update.
The official Twitter handle of HTC India revealed that the update size will be 1.43GB and will come with software version 3.18.400.2.
