An eight version of the Android Mobile Operating System is called “Oreo” which was first released on March 21, 2017, as an Alpha quality developer and finally became available for the public on August 21, 2017.

We’ve compiled a list of smartphones that will start getting Android Oreo updates.


Taking a start from Google, an Android-maker has said that Android Oreo will start landing on Google’s Nexus 6P, Nexus 5X, and Nexus Players. Chances are Google may try to leverage Project Treble and continue providing major updates to mention below devices.
