Android on its blog post has hinted that it is working with various hardware manufacturers to upgrade existing devices as well as launch new devices with Android Oreo. The Android blog post says that Google is working with the following companies to bring Android O to their devices - “Essential, General Mobile, HMD Global Home of Nokia Phones, Huawei, HTC, Kyocera, LG, Motorola, Samsung, Sharp and Sony”.
Besides these companies, the Oreo build for Google’s own Nexus 5X and 6P smartphones have entered carrier testing and will be rolled out soon in phases. The less popular Pixel C and Nexus Player will also receive the update. As for the Google Pixel devices, they will also receive the Oreo update via OTA, once the final build is tested. For users who enrolled in the Beta program, OTA update of the final build will be pushed to those devices in the coming days.
If we talk about devices in particular, we can be sure that all flagship devices, including the Samsung Galaxy S8, S8+, LG G6, HTC U11, Sony Xperia XZs will receive the Oreo update. However, we are not sure about the time frame, since companies like Samsung updated it last year flagship devices earlier this year to Android 7. On the other hand Motorola is more than likely to stay ahead of the curve and update a majority of its devices to Android Oreo in the coming weeks. As for OnePlus, we currently have no info when the OnePlus 5 and the OnePlus 3/3T smartphones will be updated to Android Oreo, although we are quite certain they will recieve the update. Indian phone maker Micromax has said that its latest offering, the Canvas Infinity, will recive the Android O update.
