Android 8.0 Oreo update: Beta out for OnePlus 5, V30 and V30+; Stable release for Nokia 8, Xperia XZ, XZs and X Performance

Android 8.0 (O)

While a majority of the Android smartphones are now receiving the Android Nougat update slowly, flagship phones from various smartphone vendors are getting ready for the release of next big software update. And that’s Android Oreo, based on Android 8.0.

You can expect the Samsung, OnePlus, Sony, LG, Xiaomi, HTC, etc. companies of our world to provide a more solid release timeline for their popular and flagship devices as regards Oreo release date pretty soon. But it’s safe to say that flagship devices like Galaxy S8, Galaxy S7, HTC U11, HTC 10, OnePlus 5/3/3T, ZenFone 4, LG G6, etc. are in for the update — in fact, we think all flagship devices from the major OEMs, released in 2017 and 2018, are eligible for the Android 8.0 update.

Now that we have established this, let’s address the elephant in the room: When will the update hit your device or even better, will your device ever get the update in the first place?

We can’t say for sure which Android devices would get the update first, except for the few, which are Google backup phones: Pixel and Nexus. Not all nexus sets are gonna see the Android Oreo update, as only Nexus 5X and 6P are in line for 8.0, while you have Pixel and Pixel XL among the very first one eligible for update.

For the rest of the devices — which are many — we think Moto Z2 Force, LG G6 and OnePlus 5 will be among the first ones, with devices from Sony and Samsung also getting Orep update by December 2017.

Here is an OEM-wise list of phones that should get the Oreo update.

Asus

Going by its history, Asus is pretty slow when it comes to rolling out big OS updates, that is for flagship handsets. Things get even worse for the mid-range handsets. Although possible, we don’t see that changing this year as well. In the best case scenario, Asus’s flagship handsets should receive the Android Oreo update within 4-5 months from the day Google announces it. Users with mid-range devices from Asus may have to wait for a while.

Recently, Asus confirmed that its smartphones under the ZenFone 4 and ZenFone 3 series will get the Android Oreo update. So, that’s some good news. Here’s a list.

BlackBerry

BlackBerry hasn’t announced which of its recently released phones will get the next big software update, the Android Oreo. If we were to speculate, however, the BlackBerry KEYone could at the least get the update sometime in 2018.

Essential

Update [November 15, 2017]: Essential have begun rolling out the Android 8.0 Oreo beta update for their one and only phone, the PH-1. In case you didn’t register for it, and thus haven’t received it as an OTA, you can still download the Android 8.0 beta update it and have fun.

Andy Rubin, during the launch of Essential Phone, had confirmed that the smartphone would be receiving software updates regularly and promptly. These are again, just his words, but we will give the benefit of the doubt to the Essential Phone for this time. Besides, the smartphone runs near-stock Android. So, it shouldn’t take long for the company to roll out the Oreo build.

Gionee

The same holds true for Gionee as well. The company hasn’t been the one to focus on the software side of things, for the most part. So, expecting an Android Oreo update is close to dreaming if you own mid-range Gionee handsets. Flagship handsets (albeit very small) stand a chance to get the update.

HTC

Update [November 28, 2017]: The software version of the Oreo update for unlocked HTC U11 handsets in the US is 2.31.617.2, and it runs 1.28GB. The Android 8.0 OTA also packs in November 2017 security patch but of course, the show here is 8.0 OS.

HTC-U11-Oreo-US-rollout

Update [November 27, 2017]: Now, users of the HTC U11 in the Europe are also receiving the Android Oreo update. Technically, the update is rolling out for all unlocked U11 units around the world, so the Android 8.0 OTA should be hitting the US fans of U11 too, but so far we’ve heard reports only from our European friends. The software version of the U11 8.0 firmware is 2.31.400.6 (Europe), but it could vary from region to region.

htc-u11-Oreo-rollout

Update [November 15, 2017]: We’re so happy to report that HTC is currently rolling out the Oreo update for their Taiwanese U11 handsets. The 8.0 also brings VoWiFi support for the local carrier there — that’s fine, but we’re dying to hear from HTC when they are plan to release the update in the US, and Europe.

htc-u11-Oreo-release

Update [October 23, 2017]: HTC is expected to give its U11 users a treat to Oreo sometime in November-end, while the HTC 10 users can be hopeful of January 2018 release of Android 8.0.

Update [August 23, 2017]: Good news, folks! HTC earlier today came out and talked a bit about their Oreo update plans. Darren Miller, HTC’s international Brand Ambassador, shared via his Twitter handle, @HTC Bro, that they plan to release the Android 8.0 update for the HTC U11, HTC U Ultra and HTC 10. It’s a worldwide release we’re talking, and thus basically covers every one of those three sets around the world, including those at US carriers (Verizon Wireless, AT&T, Sprint, T-Mobile and US Cellular, to name a few). They didn’t provide the release timeline, but we hope it happens before the end of the year.

We know you would ask, why HTC U Play has been left out. Well, it’s not that — HTC further shared that additional devices eligible for the Oreo update would be revealed later on. Here’s the tweet from HTC.

When it comes to HTC, the recently unveiled HTC U11 will most likely get the next Android update. However, the company hasn’t made any announcements regarding the development of the Android Oreo update for its devices. So, we will have to wait for a while to know more details about the same. That said, we easily imaging the following devices get an update to Oreo.

Huawei

Update [October 03, 2017]: An Oreo update has leaked out for the Mate 9, as a firmware. No signs of OTA release just yet, which could take 4-6 weeks from today to release as stable version for the public.


Huawei has decent history with software updates. They were pretty good with Nougat, and we see them do good with Oreo update too. Although we haven’t heard from Huawei as regard which of their sets are gonna receive the Oreo update, we think the following sets would surely have the luxury of running on Android 8.0 sooner or later.

Lenovo

Minus the ZUK series phones (and Motorola, of course), Lenovo has had a bad reputation when it comes to rolling out new software updates especially the big ones. And we don’t see that changing this year. Which means most of the handsets from Lenovo may not get the Android 8.0 Oreo update. Not anytime soon, at least.

LG

Update [November 27, 2017]: LG has begun pushing V30 Oreo update as beta in Korea, where the users are receiving OTA to software version V300K19C. The Android 8.0 update OTA si sized about 1193MB, and comes with November 2017 security patch too. We have the changelog in the screenshot below, but sadly, we know Korean only as good as you do, hence can’t get you a meaningful translation out of that.

lv-v30-oreo-beta

Update [November 27, 2017]: The LG V30+ is also receiving Oreo update in Korea! The software version of V30 Plus Oreo beta build is V300L19C, in line with the version we saw on V30 units.

lg-v30-plus-Oreo-beta

There haven’t been any sorts of announcements by LG as far as the Android Oreo update is concerned. So, at this point in time, it’s hard to predict when and to which devices will the latest update will be rolled out. Having said that, we expect the devices mentioned below to receive the update by the end of this year or in early 2018.

Meizu

Meizu again is another Chinese company that releases smartphones frequently but doesn’t bother to care about big OS updates. Most of its phones including the flagship ones haven’t received an update to Nougat itself. So, Android Oreo seems a bit out of the equation at this point in time.

Motorola

Update [November 23, 2017]: Motorola would soon begin rolling out Oreo update as part of their soak test program in Brazil, where few users selected under the program would receive the Android 8.0 OTA on their Moto Z and Moto Z2 Force. The Oreo rollout under the soak test is limited to Brazil only, and its OTA is not yet available for download by users of other regions for manual installation.

moto-z-oreo-soak-test

Motorola’s handsets run near-Stock Android, and the company has always been very keen on faster Android update release. Which means eligible Motorola devices will get the Android 8.0 Oreo update pretty soon. As far as eligible devices are concerned, Motorola Moto Z, Moto G, and Moto X series handsets released in the past two years (mentioned below) should receive the update.

There are only slim chances that Moto E4 and E4 Plus too receive the Oreo update, while we don’t think Moto C and C Plus will get it.

Update 15/9/2017: Motorola has announced the devices that will receive Oreo update.

Nokia

Update [November 25, 2017]: Nokia has begun rollout of the stable Oreo update for its Nokia 8 users. Further, they also confirmed that they plans to bring Oreo to Nokia 6 and Nokia 5 soon, under the beta labs program.

Update [October 25, 2017]: Nokia is now inviting Nokia 8 users to get a taste of their Android 8.0 update in beta version. If you rock a Nokia 8, and are don’t mind the little bugs that may accompany the relatively stable test build of Oreo from Nokia, then show Nokia you interest at their beta registration page linked in the new article linked above.

Update [October 03, 2017]: Nokia 8 is expected to receive the Android Oreo update in next few weeks. The Android 8.0 OTA should roll out globally.

Update [September 06, 2017]: Nokia has once again confirmed that it plans to release the Android 8.0 Oreo update for all of its phones released on Android OS in 2017. They specifically mentioned that even the lowest costing of them, the Nokia 3, won’t left out of the Oreo release. Cool, right? Hope other OEMs sit up and take notice.

HMD Global had last month confirmed that all the three phones launched by it during the MWC 2017 event would receive the Android Oreo update. Taking into consideration the fact these handsets run near-Stock Android out-of-the-box, it shouldn’t take long for the company to roll out the update to its devices (listed below) now that Google has released the Android 8.0 update.

OnePlus-5-Oreo-beta-rollout

Update [November 25, 2017]: Nokia today released the beta version of its Oreo update for the OnePlus 5, as software version open beta 1. You can download and install it manually, and even rollback to Nougat if you don’t find the beta meeting your idea of stable ROM.

Update [November 23, 2017]: OnePlus has released the stable version of its Android 8.0 Oreo update for the OnePlus 3 and OnePlus 3T. After Sony and HTC, OnePlus becomes third non-Google Android OEM to release Oreo update for its device. The Oreo update arrives on the OnePlus 3 and 3T as OxygenOS 5.0 software version, and brings all the goodies you expect in Oreo along with some cool feature addition by OnePlus itself. The Oreo update for OnePlus 3/3T is available as beta for quite some time now, and it was about time the Android 8.0 update was released for the public. Great!

Update [October 14, 2017]: OnePlus is rolling out Android 8.0 beta now for the OnePlus 3 and OnePlus 3T users. They have even released a Oreo bug fixer update.

Oppo

Except for a couple of handsets, most of the smartphones launched by Oppo in this and last year are still on Android Marshmallow. While a majority of these handsets feature hardware good enough to support Android O, we highly doubt the likelihood of these devices getting an update to the latest Android OS.

At best, they could be upgraded to Android Nougat, that is if Oppo cares to push a software update.

LeEco

Given the company’s current position in the industry, the company will most likely ignore the Android Oreo update. So, it’s wise not to get your hopes high in case you own a LeEco phone.

Samsung

Update [November 01, 2017]: Samsung today began their Oreo rollout under the beta program in the US. Selected T-Mobile and Sprint users who subscribed for the 8.0 beta under the Galaxy Beta program are now seeing 8.0 OTA hit their devices.

Samsung Oreo update news

samsung-Android-Oreo-release-US

Update [September 08, 2017]: It’s being reported that Samsung is working on the Oreo update for its Galaxy S8 and S8+, and that the test build is G950FXXU1BQI1 and G955FXXU1BQI1 respectively. However, this doesn’t mean much because going by Nougat release and similar news appearing last year, it still took Samsung a great deal of time to release 7.0 update to masses. Anyway, we can only hope that a test build of Samsung’s Oreo update comes sooner than later.

Akin to LG, even Samsung hasn’t revealed its plans for the Android Oreo Nougat update. However, it’s fair to say the we’re gonna see Oreo on popular handsets by the Korean mobile giant. Here are the devices that should get the Oreo OTA rolling out sometime in 2018 (the S8 sets could have the 8.0 update in December, in we’re in luck).

Sony

Update [November 27, 2017]: Not only the Xperia XZ and XZs that received sweetness of an update called Oreo, the X Performance users are also having fun with software version 41.3.A.0.401, that gets them Android 8.0 Oreo update too.

Update [November 25, 2017]: Sony has started pushing out out Android Oreo update for its Xperia XZ and XZs, the software version being 41.3.A.0.401. Having released the Oreo update for the Xperia XZ Premium about a month ago, Sony now has three devices updated to Oreo, while total five devices running Android 8.0 (XZ1 and XZ1 Compact came with 8.0 pre-installed), which is more than any other OEM at the moment.

Update [August 31, 2017]: Some great news here. Sony has officially announced the device list of its Xperia devices that are gonna get the Oreo update sooner or later (nope, they didn’t provide the OTA release order). Sony confirmed that its Android 8.0 OTA is being prepared for these devices: Xperia X, Xperia X Performance, Xperia XZ, Xperia X Compact, Xperia XZ Premium, Xperia XZs, Xperia XA1, Xperia XA1 Ultra, Xperia Touch and Xperia XA1 Plus. There will be two more Sony device to run Oreo update, which will be Sony Xperia XZ1 and XZ1 Compact, as both will launch with Android 8.0 pre-installed.

Sony is yet to reveal its plans for the Android Oreo update. But it’s among the first one to release the major Android update for its devices, and kudos to them for that. Last year, with Nougat, they were among the first ones to bring the Nougat update for then flagships under the beta program, and we hope for the same with Oreo update too. We think these Sony Android smartphones would receive the Oreo update before the end of December 2017.

Vivo

Vivo, akin to its Chinese counterparts, is no good when it comes to pushing the Android software updates to its devices. Most of its devices are still on Android Marshmallow and Lollipop which means Android Oreo isn’t going to come to these handsets anytime soon if not ever.

Xiaomi

Xiaomi has been pretty late to roll out the Android Nougat update to most of its handsets. And judging by its history, we don’t expect the company to push the Oreo update anytime soon. Perhaps, its most recent flagship handsets including the Xiaomi Mi 6 could get the update sometime in early 2018. The company hasn’t revealed its plans for Android O just yet.

Though, we think these devices would surely the Oreo released for them. Xiaomi could release the Oreo OTA for more devices, but we would wait until they make any announcement to confirm such devices.

ZTE

ZTE, as of now, is yet to confirm or reveal its plans for the upcoming Android Oreo update. The company has released a good number of phones since last year. While not all of these handsets will receive the update, a few will most likely do. We will update the post as and when we learn more details.

That’s it.


So, that’s the Oreo update scenario for Android phones that are currently available in the market.

Samsung seems to have the largest count of Android phones that will get Oreo update, even though a bit later than most. But it’s still good, right? While, Chinese and Indian OEMs are pretty rubbish with updates — we’re looking at you: Vivo, Oppo, Gionee, Micromax, Lava, etc.

What do you think about the whole update situation on Android?
