Android Oreo update for Asus devices

  Android 8.0
ZenFone 3 Planned, second half of 2018
ZenFone 4 Planned, second half of 2018

Asus has just unveiled six new ZenFone 4 models, and at the event it was promised that in the future the entire ZenFone 3 and ZenFone 4 lines would get the update to Android Oreo. Of course, that means ZenUI 4.0 layered on top as well, which will reportedly be less full of bloatware. You can expect the update to happen by the second half of 2018, according to Asus.

Android O update for Essential devices

  Android 8.0
Essential PH1 Planned for October or November 2017

In a Reddit AMA, Essential VP of Software Rebecca Zavin said the Essential Phone will receive Android Oreo in the next month or two. Though it ships with Nougat, this means users can expect an update either in October or November.

Android Oreo update for Google Nexus and Pixel

  Android 8.0
Google Nexus 5X Yes
Google Nexus 6P Yes
Google Nexus Player Yes
Google Pixel C Yes
Google Pixel  Yes
Google Pixel XL Yes

The first devices in line to get system updates are, as always, Google's own devices: the Nexus and Pixel phones. At the moment, to get the update you'll have to install it manually or wait for the final version to come OTA (over the air).

Google has posted their update plans for the Pixel and Pixel XL on a support page, making their guarantees of two years of Android updates (through October 2018) and three years of security updates (through October 2019) official. In addition to the Pixel and Pixel XL, the Nexus 5X, 6P, Player and Google Pixel C will be getting Android Oreo.

Android Oreo update for HTC devices

  Android 8.0
HTC U11 Planned
HTC U Ultra Planned
HTC 10 Planned

HTC has just announced which of their phones will be getting the Android Oreo update. The HTC U11, HTC U Ultra and HTC 10 will all be updated, though an exact time frame wasn't given. We think it's likely, based on previous update speed, that HTC will upgrade at least some of its devices to Android 8.0 by the end of 2017.

Android Oreo update for Huawei

  Android 8.0
Huawei Mate 9 Testing Developer Preview

Huawei is the first manufacturer (after Google) to be working on the next Android update, which is currently only available in a developer version for the Pixel phones and some Nexus devices. The Chinese manufacturer is currently testing Android Oreo on its phablet, the Mate 9. It has released the update to a few testing devices but it is still lacking many features, preventing users from getting the most out of the smartphone - for example, it's not possible to access the Google Play Store yet.

However, this development does confirm the brand's ambition to broadcast updates as quickly as possible. In beginning to test it already, Huawei may be in a position to deploy the final update of Android Oreo to the Mate 9 shortly after the official launch by Google, which is expected to take place at the end of next summer if the Mountain View firm follows the same schedule as in previous years.

Motorola has just revealed which of its smartphones will be getting the update to Android Oreo. Those with newer devices in at least the mid-range will be able to breathe a sigh of relief. The update roll out will begin this fall, but there's no more specific information available at this time. We expect the manufacturer to begin with newer high-end smartphones like the Moto Z2 devices. Check out the full list of devices above.

The Nokia 8 is set to receive the Android Oreo update soon, and the company took to Twitter to let all its fans and users know. Nokia appears to be hard at work on the update, as HMD Global Chief Product Officer Juho Sarvikas posted a couple images on Twitter of a Nokia 8 smartphone receiving an OTA update of the Android Oreo Beta. These teaser images mean that the update is already in the testing stages and should be ready for release soon.

Nokia has confirmed to TechRadar that the Nokia 6, Nokia 5 and Nokia 3 will be upgraded to Android Oreo. The three new Nokia phones announced at MWC will hit the shelves before the end of June with a nearly stock version of Android Nougat, which should make for fast updates.

  • Why no coverage of LG? I have read the V20 will get the update as well as the G5 and G6.


  • Dave S 5 days ago Link to comment

    Lenovo promised O update for the Moto G4 Plus yet decided to lie about the update, oh well, it's still a great phone


  • I dont think buying a Samsung s anything is worth it, they come out as a flagship device, then 2 months later they are just another smart phone. Why is my s8 only 7.0 nuget, when other android phones are 2 or 3 updates ahead, kind of disappointing . the battery starts to fail within a year. cant remove it, just a wast of money. im not impressed with samsung flagship phones anymore. gonna try something else.


  • VEV 3 weeks ago Link to comment

    Oneplus 5


  • When will Sony XZ premium get Oreo?


  • most people just blindly spend to satisfy shortcomings within self to make one feel better.


  • sooner or later phones will cost more than computers.


  • its not the point of android O, its the lame way that samsung waits for almost a yeat=r to update. even then its hell getting the update. why the hell dont they put on samsungs site a way to download the firmware with out no stupid ODIN or rooting.


  • I hope my S7 EDGE will be included in updates
    I do not want to buy a new phone every year
    Samsung will not buy anymore.


    • I AM SO WITH YOU. IT ILLS ME LIKE THE NOTE 8 HYPE, AS IT GETS RIDICULOUS. I HAVE A VERY EXPENSIVE ASUS GAMING ROG LAPTOP. I DON'T NEED TO SPEND 1100 PLUS FOR A NOTE 8. I have the s8 plus and its damn enough. im about over the OCD of compulsively spending 900 a pop every six months. IM done. i got my own version of a spen. a active stylus. do i need extra camera. hell no. 2 more gis ram maybe. NOT enough to get a car loan for a phone.


  • note 8, s8 also will and its sad but true no mention. and a few others like s7 and maybe s6 series. this article is not complete. look here for a list..........goto sammobile or google s8 and look for when you get update.damn thread wount allow links

  • Will the Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge get the Android O update?


  • We all went crazy thinking that Nokia was joining the Android smartphone market,but we still have no Nokia phone released yet in Europe,so Nokia might end up struggling again unless they sort themselves out,with people buying other phones that are available,so instead of getting 0 they might end up with Zero sales
