Though HTC is no more an active player in the smartphone market, it continues to support the software update for its devices. Speaking of which, the Solar Red variant of HTC U11 is receiving a new software patch. This update is rolling out with build number v3.40.454.2. This means you should be on 3.37.454.1 build before stepping up to the current version. Currently, this update is making its move in Japan.
The current v3.40 update brings security upgrades and improvements for internet accessibility and Bluetooth. It’s not clear which month’s security patch the device is receiving with the latest build.
OTA updates roll into all the devices gradually. So, the whole process will take some time. Meanwhile, interested users can manually search for the new v3.40.454.2 update. To do it, go to your device Settings > System > Software Update. If the update is available, the device will notify you to download and install it.
The v3.40.454.2 update weighs about 621 MB. The software size big. So, we recommend you to use Wi-Fi to download this update. The download process will be swift and your carrier will not charge you for the data you spend. Ensure that your device has sufficient battery charge before installing the new update.
Back in November the HTC U11 and U11+ received the V3.30.709.2 and V2.20.709.2 update. That update also brought important system enhancements for the device duo. As software updates are vital for a smartphone, make sure not to miss out on the latest v3.40.454.2 patch for HTC U11 Solar Red.
