Android Oreo is On Just 0.5% of Devices, and That Stinks

The update, 345MB in size, brings security patch for the month of December.

Note that like any other beta software, this version of Oreo isn't stable and as such, you might encounter a myriad of performance issues, including crashing apps, lags and other bugs - all of which should be fixed before the stable version is rolled out. According to the very last distribution numbers of 2017, Google says version 8.0 of the operating system is now atop just 0.5% of all devices. They also revealed that the Nokia 3, Nokia 5 and Nokia 6 would be joining the program in the future. Well, Xiaomi seems to have found some testers of Android Oreo for Mi A1 as the company has started rolling out Android 8.0 Oreo beta update for Mi A1.

"#AndroidOreo for #Nokia5 has landed on Nokia phones beta labs!" The phone features 5.2-inch HD (1280 x 720 pixels) 2.5D curved display with Corning Gorilla Glass on top.

Coming to hardware, this offering from Nokia is packing a Snapdragon 430 Octa-core processor, coupled with Adreno 505 GPU. An 8MP camera with f/2.0 aperture and 84-degree field-of-view is also given. While most people expected the Nokia 6 or even the Nokia 7 to be the next in line to receive the Oreo treat after the Nokia 8, it's obvious that HMD had other ideas. A microSD card slot is given for expandable storage up to 128GB. Meanwhile, Android 7.0 Nougat registered 1.7 percentage growth to 19.3%, and Android 7.1 increased to 4%, the combination of both the Nougat versions gives us 23.3%, i.e. 3.3% growth from last month's 20.6% overall growth.

The dual-SIM handset offers connectivity options like Wi-Fi, GPS, Bluetooth, USB OTG, FM, 3G and 4G (with support for Band 40 used by some LTE networks in India).
