Share

As of early August, only around 13% of Android devices were running Nougat, the operating system's latest iteration. But there are some phones that will get Android Oreo update in India. Read on to check if yours makes the cut.

This is no longer the case and it has been implemented into the software on goal by Google. Next in the line are the ex-Google devices - Nexus 6P, Nexus 5X and other Nexus devices.

"Oreo boasts several new features, including the ability to respond to notifications directly on a phone's home screen and the ability to access apps without installing them on a device". But it is confirmed that these smartphones of OnePlus will get the Android 8 update.

When launching the ZenFone 4 and ZenFone 4 Pro, Asus announced it will release Android Oreo update for the smartphones in this year's ZenFone 4 series as well as last year's ZenFone 3 series. Unfortunately, we'll have to wait a bit longer see Oreo on a BlackBerry KEYone but the folks over at Android Central have produced a pretty awesome video showing off the important bits.

First trailer for long-awaited Shenmue 3 pulls no punches (literally)
Unfortunately, those of you who were expecting to see something in the way of a story reveal are going to be disappointed. Today though, Ys Net has released the first teaser trailer for Shenmue III , showing off some scenery, fighting, and more.

At the launch of the new Micromax Canvas Infinity with 5.7-inch 18:9 FullVision display, the company announced it will provide the Android 8.0 Oreo update for the handset, but again, there is no timeline for it yet.

HTC added that soon it'll share more details of its update plans, including additional devices. This works on all apps straight out of the box with Android Oreo. Google Pixel and Nexus phones will be the first ones to get this update. It comes with a bunch of new features that will make using your phone faster and more delightful than ever. Typically, other phones take a few more months to get the latest and greatest update. Th upcoming phone of Samsung Galaxy Note 8 will also get Android Oreo update. But as usual, Google branded phones will obviously be the first set of devices to get Oreo. Essentially they'll need to declare upfront that they could request permission to be able to install apps from Android's Package Installer.

Whoever else is waiting for their Android device to get this major update may remain in touch with us & we will let you know as soon as the information arrives on to the Google Developer Website.
