Well, we are almost on the verge of the extinction of, once a very popular smartphone brand, HTC. If you don’t go by our words, then you should probably look at the sales performance or even the number of smartphones, let alone flagships, that the company has come up with that has been able to shake the smartphone industry and get their share of the pie. Moreover, users have also lost faith in the company when it comes to expecting Android updates, be it security or firmware updates because neither the company has any plans of updating its devices, nor it is delivering the updates on time. But, if you hung onto your HTC U11 till now, then there is some good information for you.
Thanks to the open-source nature of the Android platform, there are new custom ROMs being developed by Android enthusiasts to give support to older devices, and the HTC U11 might get one. As per the developers of one of the most popular custom ROMS, the ViperExperience ROM, or the ViperOS ROM, has confirmed that they will be bringing a custom ROM based on Android 10 for the 2017 launched HTC U11. There is no tentative date or month as to when the users should expect the Android 10 updates via custom ROM for their HTC U11, but anything related to Android 10 for an HTC smartphone is nice to hear.

As from the tweet above, you can see the internal builds running on the HTC U11 and who knows pretty soon those who still own the HTC U11 can get their hands on the Android 10 core experience on their long lost HTC phone. All we can hope is that ViperROM brings this soon for the users. We will keep you posted once we have more information in this regard.
