HTC’s mobile phone business has been losing money in recent years. After fully turning to VR, HTC has slowed down in the mobile phone business. As a result, HTC devices do not really get updates on time. Nevertheless, if you are using an HTC phone, there is hope. The company is not giving up on its smartphone business yet. In fact, it is still working on updates for its devices. According to recent reports, HTC U11 Life will be the first HTC device to get the Android 10 update. The update is coming pretty soon. Recall that this smartphone was also the first HTC phone to get the Android 9 Pie update.
