Android and iOS are the two mobile operating systems that run on most of the smartphones. They do share a bunch of features, yet, they are unique in their own terms. When it comes to OS adoption rate, iOS has an upper hand over Android. In fact, 71.3% of the iOS devices are running on latest iOS 11.2 and less than 1.5% of Android devices are running on Android 8 Oreo. This is not Google’s fault, as Android smartphone makers customise the OS according to their liking. Not only that, the hardware fragmentation also makes it tough to push timely software updates.

Now, when the smartphones will get this update is anyone’s guess as of now. The Samsung Galaxy S6, S6 edge, S6 edge+, and Galaxy Note5 will be the 2015 devices that will get the Android Oreo update. Manufacturer Development pages for these [...]

In a bizarre turn of events, someone in Vietnam received a stable build of Android 8 Oreo along with Experience UI on their Galaxy S7 Edge. This looks like an administrative error from someone at the Samsung development team. It is possible that someone pushed out a possible final build of the update.
It is worth noting that Samsung has not even run a Beta program of Android 8 Oreo on the Galaxy S7 Edge as of now. Also, it seems highly improbable that Samsung would update the Galaxy S7 Edge to Android 8 Oreo before the Galaxy S8 and S8+. Also, smartphones from Samsung launched in 2018 still run Android 7 Nougat out of the box.
This means that Samsung will launch [...]
Back in August 2017, Google officially launched Android 8.0 Oreo. In September, iOS 11 started seeding to compatible iPhones. According to a recent market share data, it was revealed that Android 8 Oreo is present in about 1% of Android devices. In late-January, it was revealed that iOS 11 is present in about 65% iPhones.
