HTC does not appear to release Android Pie for less than two years old U Ultra




HTC has announced the devices that will be upgraded to Android 9.0 Pie. This does not include the Desire 12 of this year and the high-end U Ultra phone from last year. The list of devices that do get an upgrade contains four phones.

HTC will provide the U12 +, U11 +, U11 and U11 Life with Android Pie, the manufacturer says on Twitter. This only concerns the Android One version of the U11 Life that came out in Europe. The Life is the only midrange telephone in the short list. The U Play from the beginning of last year is missing. Also the Desire 12 and 12+ of this year are not in the list. The HTC 10 does not occur, presumably because it is more than two years old.

Now it is in theory still possible that HTC the list of devices eligible for an upgrade even expands, though that is not obvious. The manufacturer also does not announce when the upgrades will be released. HTC says it will confirm later. Often the latest phones get the upgrades first; that is how the U11 was the first of the HTC phones Oreo last year, while the HTC 10 followed.

Android 9.0 came out last week . That only happened for Googles Pixel phones. Three of the four Pixel phones so far are from HTC; Pixel, Pixel XL and Pixel 2 are all designed by the Taiwan smartphone maker.
