HTC isn't dead yet, promises Android 9 updates this month

The HTC U11

The HTC U11 will be updated first, around the end of May, to be followed by the U12 Plus in June, and the U11 Plus starting at the end of June. Back in March, the company has announced that it will start rolling out the Android Pie Update to some of its smartphones very soon. On the bright side, the rollout will begin before the second quarter of the year ends, as the company had promised before.

As always, HTC notes that certain regions and carrier deployment may affect these dates.

So much can happen in such a short time.

You'd be forgiven for writing off HTC's smartphone business as over. These days, Samsung, Huawei, Xiaomi, and to a lesser extent, LG, are all vying for the top spot, with HTC nearly out of the entire picture.

Why is Android 9 Pie update getting late for HTC phones? You see, while the Android development team is busy, HTC is finalizing Android Pie for its flagship phones. Similarly, other HTC phones will not be receiving the update either. In 2018, HTC stopped making new smartphones, and now, the company is taking the final steps to keep up the promise (offering at least two major Android updates to HTC flagship smartphones). HTC has announced this on Twitter account.
