List of Eligible Smartphones, Check If Your Device Getting the Update

Don't forget to use the blob emoji one last time before updating to Android Oreo HTC U11, HTC U Ultra, and HTC 10 will be updated to Android 8.0 Oreo

Blazing speed: With Android Oreo, users can get started on tasks more quickly than ever with a faster boot speed (up to twice as fast on Pixel, in fact). However, we can be sure that first Android phones to get Oreo will be Google devices like the Nexus 5X and 6P and the Google Pixel and Pixel XL.

Since past few months there were rumours suggesting the company to name Android "O" as Oreo, given the dessert's popularity across the globe. Google has been working with OEMs to minimize the delay in rolling out updates to all possible Android devices. Given the glacial (and often non-existent) rollout of new Android versions to existing devices, one might expect it to take up to a year or more to be complete. Many on Google's Nexus Help Forum and Pixel User Community have reported issues with Bluetooth connectivity disengaging nearly as soon as it's been activated, which some said they had been experiencing intermittently since Android 7.0 Nougat. On the launch of Nokia 8 company claimed that Nokia 8 will be the first phone to receive Android O. So all Android phones of Nokia will get the Android O update. Its spokesperson has confirmed that the recently announced BlackBerry KEYone will be getting the Android 8.0 Oreo update.

Android Oreo users will need to grant permission to each app to allow it to download apps from untrusted sources. Th upcoming phone of Samsung Galaxy Note 8 will also get Android Oreo update. As in the past, HTC wants to be ahead by announcing that it is going to release Android O for its latest premium flagship phones such as the HTC U11, U Ultra, and HTC 10. Let us take a look at some of the Android Oreo Bugs and how can you report them.

What's special about Android Oreo?

The phones from other OEMs which run stock Android, are the ones who get the newer version updates faster than the ones which don't. If you have Nexus device and haven't joined the Beta program then you will have to wait for the final update. Huawei phones, HTC phones, LG phones and Sony phones will also get NAdroid Oreo update.

For example, some of your group chats in a messaging app might have permission to buzz and light up your phone, while others just display a silent alert.
