But those devices that were enrolled in the beta-Nexus 6P, Nexus 5X, Pixel, Pixel XL, Pixel C, and Nexus Player-were slated for the next drop. Some had hoped this was just a bug and would be removed, but it looks like it made its way into the first release of Android Oreo. Nevertheless, the famous Google stated that, after more than a year of development and months of testing by the dedicated developers and early adopters, they are ready to officially launch the highly-anticipated Android 8.0 Oreo to the public. Its spokesperson has confirmed that the recently announced BlackBerry KEYone will be getting the Android 8.0 Oreo 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.

Android O does, however, include 69 new emojis as part of the Emoji 5.0 update, which applies to Unicode 10.0 - the latest version of the computing standard for handling text expressed in most of the world's writing systems and more. So, in case you are using an Indian brand phone, we suggest not to wait for the new Android 8 Oreo update, and start planning for a new smartphone.

So it goes without saying Android 8.0 Oreo for Essential Phone is a definite go, along with the next major version. Only a handful of existing non-Google devices are likely to get the next Oreo update, like Nokia 6 and Galaxy S8. Hence, it can be easily pushed out to phones running stock Android. No timeframe for the updates were given, but Google did name HTC as one of the companies that are scheduled to launch or upgrade devices to Android 8.0 by the end of 2017. Considering the heavily customised skin that Samsung smartphones come with, we can expect the company to take a few months before releasing the update.
