Last month, we heard that the unlocked version of the HTC 10 had started receiving its Android 8.0 Oreo update. That update didn't actually end up rolling out for whatever reason, but now it looks like it really has started out out. For real this time.

Unlocked HTC 10 owners in the US are now reporting on Twitter that they've started receiving their Android 8.0 Oreo update. It clocks in at 1.32GB in size.

The update to Android 8.0 Oreo brings with it many new features, like picture-in-picture so that you can watch a video from one app while performing tasks in other apps. Other new Oreo features include smart text selection, notification dots, and Android Instant apps.

If you've got an unlocked HTC 10 and haven't yet gotten your Oreo treat, you can launch your Settings app and go into About > Software updates > Check now.
