Unlocking HTC U11 users in the U.S. will get the update notification very soon. The Taiwanese tech giant released the OS update in time for Cyber Monday.

Disclosed over the weekend, owners of an unlocked HTC U11 are in for a treat this week. Those with an unlocked HTC U11 will be able to update their device to the latest major Android release, Oreo, starting today. The only downside with the smartphone is the bezels on the front, but the company recently launched a tweaked version of the U11, dubbed as HTC U11 Plus.

HTC started rolling out the Android oreo upgrade to HTC U11 units a few weeks back in Taiwan.

Tencent's market cap is above Chinese e-commerce giant Alibaba , which stands at $474.15 billion, and Baidu at $82.97 billion. It has taken stakes in Snap and Tesla, and in several Asian based startups including Ola, a rival of Uber based in India.

The HTC U11 will get a slew of new features with the arrival of Android Oreo.

With HTC's own Oreo build for the U11 now being ready for deployment, the company's wireless carrier partners are also already in the process of optimizing their own versions of the firmware and should begin distributing them in the coming months. Android Oreo is also set to bring access to a wide range of features including Notification Channels, Notification Dots, Autofill for passwords and Android Instant Apps. While we haven't heard of handsets outside of Korea getting the update just yet, there's no reason to think that it won't spread very soon. With the update, you will also notice improvements in battery life as power management has been enhanced. HTC U11 is the first ever smartphone to feature "squeezable sides". The smartphone now runs on Android 7.1.2 Nougat operating system.
