While upcoming HTC U11 Life is all ready to surface in a few weeks, HTC U11 is getting a late firmware update. HTC’s firmware updates somehow always reach a bit late to its devices over a certain region. Even the very beginning of this month HTC 10 got a late September firmware update. Although most of the other devices are updated with latest security updates, HTC U11 seems very lagging in that matter. Currently, August firmware update for HTC U11 is rolling for its US variants. The update is rolling OTA (over-the-air).
This update brings the firmware build number 1.28.617.6 to the US variants of HTC U11. This firmware update weighs in around 716.57 MB. It updates the device with August Security patch. We hope that it also brings the fix for the notorious Blueborne vulnerability. Maybe for that reason, the update is seeding late. With this update, the device will also get system enhancements. You can perform the update by capturing the OTA. Also, you can manually download the update from HTC Servers directly.
