On March 21st, Google released the first ever developer preview of the Android 8.0 Oreo. The company introduced many new features with this new Android update. However, the early developer preview is limited to Nexus 5X, Nexus 6P, Nexus Player, Pixel, Pixel XL and Pixel C devices. At the Google I/O 2017, the company announced the developer preview 2 for the above mentioned devices and will also receive the future OTA updates.

Leaving out the Google’s own hardware, the users with other devices can’t actually get the new Android 8.0 Oreo features before the public release. As of now, only a few manufacturers have confirmed the Android 8.0 Oreo update for few of their devices. While we expected the Google Pixel 2 & Pixel XL 2 to be first smartphones to come with Android 8.0 Oreo out of the box, Sony launched the Xperia XZ1 and XZ1 Compact with Android 8.0 Oreo out of the box at the IFA 2017 event.

Below is the updated list of the devices that are expected to receive the Android 8.0 Oreo update. We will be updating the list as we got more confirmed information from the manufacturers.

Google

Since the Google’s own Nexus and Pixel devices already got the Android O developer preview, these devices will also be the first devices to receive the public release. If there is no agreement made with its partner manufacturers, the upcoming Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL should be the first devices to run on the all-new Android O out of the box.
