HTC 10 Oreo update: Verizon rolls out August patch as version 2.41.605.23 (7.1.1 OS)

htc 10 Oreo release

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 US, and if that doesn’t happen, Q1 is a sure bet.

Unlocked/International HTC 10 Oreo update

Android Oreo release: Expected in Q1 2018.

The global variant of the HTC 10, as well as the unlock model in USA, should be among the first one among all variants of the HTC 10 world over to receive the Android Oreo update from the Taiwanese giant.

Following the Oreo OTA release for the unlocked and international sets, HTC should be bringing the 8.0 build to carrier-locked handsets, including but not limited to those in USA first: AT&T, T-Mobile, Sprint, Verizon, etc.

Once the Oreo update for the HTC U11 and U Ultra is out, we would have better idea of when it would hit the HTC 10 sets. You can add about 2 months time to Oreo release for the unlocked HTC 0 sets, once the unlocked U11 sets get treated to goodness of Oreo.

AT&T HTC 10 Oreo update

Android Oreo release: Expected in Q2 2018.

AT&T is no longer the slowest carrier that would release the updates months after other carriers were done. But they aren’t the quickest either. They were able to roll out Nougat update for the One M9 only in May 2017, so we can expect the HTC 10’s Oreo rollout at AT&T sometime in Q2 2018 only.

The chances of AT&T updating their HTC 10 to Oreo within Q1 2018 are pretty slim.

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.
