HTC rolls out Android Oreo for unlocked U11 Life in the U.S

The HTC U11 Life was launched in two variants: Sense version with Android 7.1.1 Nougat for the U.S and Android One version running Android Oreo out of the box from day one for the rest of the world. However, HTC promised Oreo update for U.S version within 30 days.

Now keeping the promise HTC has announced that Oreo update will roll out starting today to the unlocked HTC U11 Life in the U.S. This will put the U.S U11 Life version on par with the Android One version.
