With HTC's own Oreo build for the U11 now being ready for deployment, the company's wireless carrier partners are also already in the process of optimizing their own versions of the firmware and should begin distributing them in the coming months. While we haven't heard of handsets outside of Korea getting the update just yet, there's no reason to think that it won't spread very soon.
