Android 8 Oreo
Android 8 Oreo

A lot of smartphone users are still out there using running the obsolete and outdated Android 5 Lollipop,  4.2 KitKat or lower that some are not compatible with some apps and may probably develop issues like “unfortunately app closed” among others.

Google has been busy working on another excellent OS called the Android 8.0 Oreo and will start distributing them to Android users soon. It’s so unlucky that not everyone will receive the update on their current smartphones. Some people might receive the update in some years to come only if the individual changes his phone and upgrade to a higher smartphone that’s highly compatible with the Android 8 operating system.

Android 8.0 Oreo Features

Below are some of the features of Android 8.0 Oreo are:

  • Improved customised notifications
  • Full control over background running applications
  • New keyboard functions
  • Improved adaptive icons
  • Better cache handling
  • Several new gestures.

The Android 8.0 Oreo, which is also known as Android “O” is expected to roll out via OTA (over-the-air) method which will be easier and more secure. However, we have provided a list of smartphones that will be getting the update early when released by mid-August 2017.
