The Best Gets Better
We have news for HTC U11 owners everywhere—your smartphone already supports Bluetooth 5.0 technology. Put another way, since day one, your device’s hardware has been ready to support Bluetooth 5.0 connections—with no additional firmware updates needed from HTC.

What’s Next?

When Android O, the next version of the Android OS becomes available, HTC U11 owners all over the world will be able to enjoy the benefits of Bluetooth 5.0.

We’re excited to be able to bring this announcement to HTC U11 customers around the world as we strive to continuously improve our customers mobile experience—we believe Bluetooth 5.0 compatibility helps do that.

U11 owners should be aware that even though the device has been certified for Bluetooth 5.0, it won't actually be able to take advantage of these enhanced features until Android O launches a little later this year. But when it does, the U11 will be one of the better devices out there to work with smart appliances as well as smart watches -- with the bottleneck of slow Bluetooth speeds removed, those devices should work a lot better.
