WHEN WILL I GET THE ANDROID OREO UPDATE?

Ever since Google announced the rollout, this is the question every Android device owner has been asking. It is true that hundreds of thousands of Android devices will receive the update (albeit in time), but many will not. If you have one of the newer phones you bought not very long ago and is a little (if not very) pricey, you are more likely to receive the update, but probably more later than sooner. Take a look at the list of the eligible devices we have put together for you.

The users with moderately or low priced Android devices may never become eligible for Oreo. Well, at least not officially. There is always a way to side-load any firmware even on a non-eligible device. But, that creates more problems than it solves. Oreo is designed for devices with more advanced specs. It may cause troubles on a low-speck mobile. So, say, your devices run on an older version like KitKat, I would strongly recommend you to NOT side-load Oreo.

Google has already released Oreo to its own range of phones including top of the line Pixel and Nexus series. Nexus 5 and 6 are quite old relatively and they will not support Android Oreo.

If you happen to have one of the phones from the Google range, you could be among the first to get the Oreo update. All you got to do is register your devices for the Android Beta Program. This, you can do by visiting https://www.google.com/android/beta. You will need to sign in with your Google account. You will instantly receive the update after registering to this program. Please also note that registering here will place you on the top of the future rollout queue. If you don’t wish to receive any beta updates in the future, remove your Google device from this program after upgrading to Android Oreo 8.0.

DO I REALLY NEED ANDROID OREO?

That’s another incredible question. Technically speaking, Google wouldn’t mandate the upgrade on the eligible devices. So, even if do not upgrade, you can continue using your device with the existing firmware like before.

But, what you meant to asked was if you will miss something big by not upgrading, I would say a bit but not a lot. Oreo does bring to you little more utilitarian value, better device performance, and improved power optimization. It adds a bit of cosmetic appeal to the device too. But, if you have been happy with your existing firmware, you may probably not feel as excited after upgrading as the one who has been struggling with their device.

I will also add that Oreo is the most advanced Android version. There is absolutely no harm in upgrading!
