List of Smartphones Expected to Get Android 8.0 Oreo Update

by PhoneRadar Bureau 10

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. The Google Nexus 6 and Nexus 5 will be missing out the Android O update.

Sony (Officially Confirmed)

After launching the Sony Xperia XZ1 and Xperia XZ1 Compact with Android 8.0 Oreo out of the box, the company also released the list of  Xperia smartphones to receive the Oreo update in the coming months. However, the company hasn’t revealed any timeline for these updates.

Motorola (Officially Confirmed)

Motorola is the one manufacturer that has been constantly releasing the latest Android updates. In September 2017, the company has officially confirmed the below-listed devices to receive the Android 8.0 Oreo update. Last year’s Moto E3 Power which came with Android 6.0 marshmallow out of the box hasn’t even received a single update. Now in 2017, the Moto E4 and E4 Plus might not receive the Oreo update.

Samsung

Though Samsung is not that fast in releasing the software updates, most of its high-end devices will surely receive the latest Android updates.

LG (Officially Confirmed)

If you remember, the LG V20 launched in the second half of 2016, it is the world’s first smartphone to launch with Android 7.0 Nougat out of the box. However, the newly launched LG V30 came with Android 7.1.2.

Huawei

Huawei releases the latest Android updates faster than other Chinese manufacturers. However, the company is much beyond the release dates of the other major manufacturers.

OnePlus (Officially Confirmed)

OnePlus has a very limited market reach and very limited device launches. Last year, the company launched the OnePlus 3 in the first half and OnePlus 3T with few internal changes in the second half. While the Chinese variants of OnePlus devices run on Hydrogen OS, the international variants get the Oxygen OS. The new OnePlus 5 will soon get the Android 8.0 Oreo update. Last month, the leaks revealed the closed beta testing of Android 8.0 Oreo for OnePlus 3 smartphone.

Blackberry

After Blackberry quitting the hardware business, we have seen a couple of decent smartphones that manufactured by its partners. Since the Blackberry will be offering software updates for all the latest Blackberry branded devices, we expect all the new devices to receive the latest Android O update.

Nokia (Officially Confirmed)

At the MWC 2017, Nokia re-entered the mobile phone market by launching the Nokia 3310 feature phone along with three Android-powered smartphones. All these devices come with Android Nougat out of the box.

HTC (Officially Confirmed)

Last year, HTC is one of the first manufacturers to put out the Android 7.0 Nougat roadmap. Now, the company has already mentioned releasing the Android 8.0 Oreo update by the end of this year.
