Devices That Will Get Android Oreo

The version 8.0 of Android named Oreo was made available to the device vendors on 21 August 2017. That was 5 months back. Even though latest phones are being shipped with Oreo, not all existing devices will be lucky enough to get it. Since a lot of people have been worried about whether they will or won’t be getting the Oreo update, here is a list of smartphones that will surely be getting it.

Google

Since Google owns the android project it always takes care of its devices and makes sure they get updated to the latest version of Android.

  • Pixel
  • Pixel XL
  • Nexus 5X
  • Nexus 6
  • Nexus 6P

OnePlus

OnePlus has had only flagship phones and hence they usually get the latest updates. The following phones from OnePlus will surely be receiving the Oreo update.

  • OnePlus 5
  • OnePlus 5T
  • OnePlus 3T
  • OnePlus 3

Samsung

I wouldn’t be able to count the number of phones Samsung launches every year using the number of fingers on my hand. The biggest smartphone company launches a large number of phones, each with multiple variants every year. Though there are rumors for most of these devices, there are only a handful of devices that are confirmed to get the Oreo Update.

  • Galaxy Note 8
  • Galaxy S8
  • Galaxy S8+

HTC

Once the biggest name in the Android market, HTC hasn’t seen success lately. However, it has had some flagship phones in the last couple of years that will definitely be getting the Oreo update.

  • HTC 10
  • HTC U Ultra
  • HTC U11
  • HTC U11 Life

Xiaomi

To be honest, Xiaomi is not very much concerned about the Android versions. All it cares about is the MIUI versions. MIUI is a custom skin of android built on top of Android. Xiaomi is always the last in line to give android updates to its users. Though there are rumors about many devices, the only devices that are confirmed to get Oreo are as follows.

  • Mi A1
  • Mi Mix 2

LG

LG has been very particular about its phones and has enjoyed premium success with them. The following phones will be updated to Android version 8.0. Though the update for V20 might just happen, the G5 probably won’t get an update at all due to poor sales.

  • G6
  • V30

Motorola

Motorola has always had a good record of updating their phones and except for the lower end C and E series of phones, almost all recent phones will be getting the Oreo update. They have already started rolling them and some of these devices have already received it.

  • Moto G4 Plus

  • Xperia X Performance
  • Xperia XA1
  • Xperia XA1 Plus

Nokia

Last but not the least, Nokia made its grand entry this year to the android market and has promised that all phones will be receiving at least 2 years of Android updates.

  • Nokia 3
  • Nokia 5
  • Nokia 6
  • Nokia 8

What if my phone doesn’t get the Oreo Update?

Well, would that really be a big deal? If yes, then you could go for custom ROMs. There are some really good custom ROM projects that have support for a large array of devices and are often the first ones to get the latest Android updates, even before the OEMs. If you wish to install android oreo on your smartphone via custom ROMs, you should check our list of the Most famous Custom Roms for Android.
