Android Nougat Running on 15.8% Devices, Oreo Yet to Make an Appearance


Google also provided information on the screen size and density of Android devices that visited its store during a 7-day period ending on September 11.

Many users have reported these bugs on the Google Product Forums and a Pixel Community Manager has already responded to this by announcing that they will be fixing this via an update.

Meanwhile, Android Nougat is gaining adoption up from 13.5 per cent in August to 15.8 per cent this month.

Android Oreo also brings numerous new features such as picture-in-picture, which allows users to do two tasks simultaneously, like checking the calendar while planning a party on a Duo video call.

Android Oreo has been a rather buggy OS so far. Google doesn't count OS builds with distributions of less than 0.1 percent, meaning Oreo's absence is because it hasn't yet reached this benchmark - but that could change by next month. While we can't know for sure when other flagship smartphones will receive Android 8.0 Oreo, we can be sure that it will arrive during the upcoming future. It looks like some users accidentally got an update which was named Android 7.1.2 but is actually the September 2017 Android Security Patch.

The routine of Google launches have seen the series of the "number" being very common.

The newest version of Android - Oreo 8.0 - only started rolling out to Pixel and Nexus devices quite recently.

So does that mean it's a downgrade OTA?
