HTC recently rolled out Android 9.0 Pie update for its HTC U11 smartphone in Taiwan. Now just about after a week of the update, the Pie update for HTC U11 has been pulled down by the company.
Several users of the HTC U11 in Taiwan have reported a bug in which they have been unable to unlock their U11 with a pattern or PIN after they updated the device to Android 9.0 Pie. This effectively results in bricking the device as there is not a way for the user to unlock the phone.
The company in response has since pulled down the update and is also offering free service to anyone who upgraded and can no longer use their phone.
According to HTC’s schedule, the HTC U11 Plus will be next to receive a Pie update, and later on the flagship, HTC U12 Plus will receive the update.
