Nexus Android 8.0 Oreo Release Delay Continues

13 September 2017

As of now, we do not know whether this new device will come with Android Oreo support right out-of-the-box or will be upgraded via OTA support. Here is a list of Google smartphones that won't be getting the update. However, these are just minor issues which can be fixed in the upcoming updates and would not require users to downgrade from Oreo to Nougat operating system. While some carriers still allow their users to use certain apps like Whatsapp even if they have used all of their mobile data, Android Oreo does not realize this yet.

Google's Nexus 6P and Nexus 5X Android Oreo updates are now available to beta testers. Android 4.4 KitKat was running on 16 per cent devices in August and Jelly Bean on 7.6 per cent.

Google Android 8.0 Oreo brings a host of improvements and new features to Android like Picture-in-Picture (PiP) mode, better battery optimization and more. It looks like some users accidentally got an update which was named Android 7.1.2 but is actually the September 2017 Android Security Patch.

The GFXbench listing means that the company is testing out the Android 8.0 build on the Nokia 9.

It will soon be time to say goodbye to Android Gingerbread and Ice Cream Sandwich (both at 0.6%), as Android distribution numbers will not reflect any version with less than 0.1% usage.

So it's safe to say that the update only contains the latest security security patch, just that it's mistakenly labeled as Android Nougat.

Android 8.0 Oreo already rolled out to most Pixel and Nexus devices, and although it offers quite a few useful and interesting features, it also has a few annoying bugs on board.

I've not had anything for any of my devices in the United Kingdom yet, and the images aren't yet up on the Google Developers site, but hopefully it won't be long now.
