Update:Optus has removed the information about the HTC One M9, however it’s still visible that it was in testing on their last blog update. We have reached out to Optus for a reason why.
Update 2: Optus has advised they done goofed. In a statement to Ausdroid, an Optus representative said
I would like to apologise for this, as the team have informed me that this update was due to an admin error and was promptly removed.
I can confirm that the Huawei Mate 9 update has been deployed, however due to the similar names, there was an error on the description of the HTC One M9
Optus customers who purchased the
HTC One M9 or the Huawei Mate 9 are getting a tasty treat with news that the Android 8.0 (Oreo) update is now available to your handsets.
The news comes courtesy of the Optus software update site which lists the update for both handsets as ‘Deployed’. The update for both devices includes the fix for the KRACK Wi-Fi security exploit which surfaced back in November.
The Oreo update for both handsets should include the usual Oreo features as well as a security update, though we’ve not seen an update screen from the update to check what month is included.
If you’ve got a Huawei Mate 9
or HTC One M9, head into the Settings > About Phone and check for an update – and be sure to share screenshots with us when you do.
