Google has released some information about the upcoming operating system, which will feature a redesigned notification center and many subtle tweaks that should lead to an overall increase in speed. Been there, too. Android Oreo helps minimise unintentional overuse of battery from apps in the background; these limits keep the battery going longer. Read on to check if yours makes the cut.

It is mentioned above that all phones don't get the latest operating system Android 8.0 update. The latest version of Google's mobile software will be rolled out as OTA update in a phased manner. Google is nonetheless a reliable company that takes care of its customers and committed to keeping Nexus 6P and Nexus 5X updated with security patches until next year in September.

Eagle-eyed users of Android O will have noticed the absence of the "Allow unknown sources" setting, which has existed since the earliest days of Android to facilitate the installation of apps from outside of Google Play and other preloaded stores. That's because the validation process can be onerous: Chip makers, smartphone manufacturers and carriers all must modify and test the update before it becomes available to consumers, a practice that typically takes several months. Unfortunately, we'll have to wait a bit longer see Oreo on a BlackBerry KEYone but the folks over at Android Central have produced a pretty awesome video showing off the important bits.

With Android 8.0 Oreo announced as coming to the BlackBerry KEYone chances are you're interested in what, exactly that means in terms of new features and enhancements.

Specifically, owners of the HTC 10, U11, and U Ultra will receive the update, but there's no word yet on when these updates will come.

As with all these new Android launches, expect Android Oreo to make its first appearance on Google's own line of devices, notably the Pixel and a handful of the more recent Nexus handsets. It also auto-connects a the phone to a high quality open Wi-Fi and secures the connection with a VPN back to Google. On the launch of Nokia 8 company claimed that Nokia 8 will be the first phone to receive Android O. So all Android phones of Nokia will get the Android O update.

Android Pay Unlock Bypass: A potentially unsafe bug - Android Pay transactions are happening without unlocking the phone. Yesterday Search giant Google announced Android Oreo. They also said that the OnePlus 3 and 3T will be getting a taste of Oreo but they did not provide a specific timeline. So it goes without saying Android 8.0 Oreo for Essential Phone is a definite go, along with the next major version. But as usual, Google branded phones will obviously be the first set of devices to get Oreo.
