HTC 10 Oreo update: Android 8.0 roll out begins on Sprint

htc 10 Oreo release

The unlocked HTC 10 is now, February 23, 2018, receiving a new update that installs Android 8.0 Oreo. The update carries software version 3.16.617.2 and weighs 1.32GB, unfortunately, the device is still stuck on December 2017 security patch, which is kinda strange at a time when March 2018 security patches are about a week or so away.

All in all, HTC 10 fans will be delighted to see the device is finally receiving the new OS, even if it doesn’t bring the latest security patch. The update is rolling out over the air and thus it’ll take a while before all units get the OTA notification.


HTC’s VP of Product Management, Mo Versi, has just confirmed that Sprint users of the HTC 10 will start receiving Android 8.0 Oreo OTA starting February 13, 2018.

Of course, not every HTC 10 user on the American carrier will get the OTA notification on the said date. It’ll take a few days before the OS hits all units, which means you may be notified to download it later this week. Alternatively, you can try a manual update by heading to Settings > About phone, but make sure you have a stable Wi-Fi connection and at least 50% battery juice.


Update [April 19, 2018]: As you can see from the tweet above, HTC 10 was reported to have started receiving Android Oreo on February 13. But in fact, this never actually happened, which is why the American carrier has once again confirmed that Oreo is rolling out to the HTC 10 starting today.

This comes after the official RUU file was made available for download by HTC, also confirming that the over the air update is available.


Update [March 12, 2018]: After HTC 10 users in India and Singapore received Android Oreo towards the end of February, HTC Australia has on March 12th also joined the party by beginning the roll out to the HTC 10.

Update [January 25, 2018]: HTC is now rolling out Android Oreo update for HTC 10 users in the MEA region (the Middle East and Africa). HTC announced the Oreo rollout on their Facebook page here, where they also confirmed that this is for unlocked handsets only. If you are residing in the MEA region, do hit up Settings, and check for the new system update now.

Update [January 14, 2018]: HTC has begun rolling out Oreo update for its unlocked HTC 10 handsets in the US. The Android 8.0 upgrade comes as software version 3.16.617.2 and is already available for download as RUU file, which is HTC’s self-installing ROM Update Utility. Moreover, the Android 8.0 update is also live in Taiwan, where it is rolling out as version 3.16.709.3.

The update is now available in Europe, too, from 18th January 2018. The Android 8.0 Oreo for HTC 10 sets in Europe comes as version 3.16.401.2 and runs at 1.41GB. The Oreo update has hit HTC 10 users in Poland too, where it is rolling out as software version 3.18.118.1, sized 1.46GB.

Update [September 27, 2017]: Verizon is rolling out a new update for its HTC 10, that comes as software version 2.41.605.23, and is powered by Android 7.1.1 Nougat OS. The new update is not available for download as RUU, and besides the August security patch, nothing else is known to be part of the update. Does it fix the Blueborne security patch? Well, our guess is as good as yours, but we do think it should be taking care of that.

Update [August 30, 2017]: HTC has confirmed that it plans to release the Android 8.0 Oreo update for its HTC 10, besides the U11 and U Ultra. Although we were never in doubt about HTC 10 Oreo support, it was good to hear it from the company itself. Now, the timing of the HTC 10 Oreo release wouldn’t be that quick — as you have both U11 and U Ultra first in line. Although, we think that by December-end, there could be an Oreo OTA out for the unlocked HTC 10 sets in the US, and if that doesn’t happen, Q1 is a sure bet.

Sprint HTC 10 Oreo update

Android Oreo release: Expected in Q1 2018.

Sprint has been pretty fast with software updates. But recently, they don’t look like caring a lot about updates. Their software update pages are often left not-updated while the monthly security patches are far and few.

But we still think we would see the Oreo OTA rolling out for Sprint HTC 10 sets sometime in March 2018.

T-Mobile HTC 10 Oreo update

Android Oreo release: Expected in Q1 2018.

T-Mobile is pretty active with monthly security patches. We are sure they would act fast with Oreo update too.

You can expect the T-Mobile HTC 10 Android 8.0 OTA to rollout sometime February 2018.

Verizon HTC 10 Oreo update

Android Oreo release: Expected in Q1 2018.

Verizon released the Nougat update for their HTC One M9 only days ago. On September 25, 2017, to be exact. And that’s very, very awful. You know, even Oreo update is out now, and Nougat is more than 13 months old now. So, that is really lame of Verizon.

We don’t think even Verizon can do this again, so a Q2 release of Verizon HTC 10 still looks on cards.

HTC 10 Australia

Android Oreo release: Released on March 12, 2018

Folks in Australia can, beginning on March 12, 2018, enjoy the latest Android 8.0 Oreo on their phones. The update is rolling out over the air and with it comes all the glory of Oreo.
