September Security OTA update hits Pixel and Nexus Devices

Adjust Comment Print

The latest Google app beta suggest a new version of Android that is on its way. Here is a list of Google smartphones that won't be getting the update. Following Marshmallow is Lollipop (5.0 and 5.1) at a total of 28.8%, while Nougat is in third place with 15.8% (14.2% for 7.0 and 1.6% for 7.1).

It is not clear when the update will be hitting the Android Oreo devices as of now. With that being said, here are the top three features that makes waiting for Android 8.0 Oreo worth while. The most notable change from last month is that Nougat's market share has finally increased to the point where it's overtaken KitKat as the third most popular version of the OS. 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.

Have you been experiencing this issue on your Pixel or Nexus smartphone?

According to recently posted findings on forums and sites such as Reddit, the operating system apparently bypasses and neglects the user's Wi-Fi connection and instead eats up the plan's mobile data. According to further reports, the Android Oreo update will be available for the users for OnePlus 3, 3T and 5 mostly by the end of this month.

The push to overhaul the tax code is a top priority for Trump and Republicans after their effort on health care failed. Tonight, the president will be wining and dining a bipartisan group at the White House on the issue.

Older versions of Android have also seen a massive decrease in the number of active devices, especially the Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich and Android 4.1 Jellybean.

The start of the OTA might be around the corner but that doesn't mean every single Nexus user will get Android 8.0 when the roll begins.

I've not had anything for any of my devices in the United Kingdom yet, and the images aren't yet up on the Google Developers site, but hopefully it won't be long now.
