Oreo is Google's new operating system and it said to completely revolutionize the Android user experience.

The first from the list, HTC U11, now runs on Android 7.1 Nougat out-of-the-box with HTC Sense UI atop, whereas HTC U Ultra now operates on Android 7.0 Nougat with HTC Sense UI atop. While there were not many new features added to Android Oreo, the 8th instalment of Google's mobile OS, one new feature added to it was really useful and cool. The tweet reads, "We're excited to bring Android 8.0 to the HTC U11, U Ultra, & 10, beginning with U11 in Q4".

HTC has confirmed to upgrade at least three of its top of the line handsets - HTC U 11, HTC U Ultra and HTC 10 to Android 8.0 Oreo OTA. So, if you are a proud owner of a device other than these, then you might have to wait a few more months to get your hands on Oreo. Autofill framework allows automatic log-in for apps where users have granted permission in Android Oreo. Google introduced app shortcuts in Android Nougat, where you could access shortcuts for frequently performed action on supported apps by long pressing the app icon on your home screen or the app drawer. This means that companies can start customising the Android 8.0 Oreo in accordance with their device's UI styling.
