Android 8.0 Oreo was unveiled last month and has already made its way to Pixel and Nexus devices with many other companies like Nokia and HTC confirming Oreo roll out for their devices. Now, motorola has also confirmed that 12 of its devices will also receive the update starting this fall.
Android Oreo was recently unveiled by Google and companies are eager to make the stride towards the new OS.
Following the announcement, Google made the Android Open Source Project (AOSP) available for everyone. This means that companies can start customising the Android 8.0 Oreo in accordance with their device’s UI styling.
Since moto devices run on stock Android, it would be easier for the company to roll out Oreo updates for a number of its devices currently running Android Nougat.
“With the new Android OS update that gives you faster speeds, longer battery life, split-screen capabilities, smart text selection, improved notifications, auto fill framework for your trickiest of passwords, and of course, the all new Google Play Protect, helping to ensure none of your apps become compromised,” the company stated.
The Android 8.0 Oreo update doesn’t only bring new features to the table but also a few useful performance tweaks. Device boots two times quicker than on Android Nougat, and another feature helps in minimizing background activity of least used apps.
Minimizing background activity of such apps also ensures an enhanced battery performance, meaning your device stays up for long on a single charge.
In addition to all this, Google is also bringing newly redesigned emojis with the latest Android O update.
When Will Other Brands Roll Out the Update?
According to Google, you can expect Android Oreo update on devices by other manufacturers by the end of the year.
All the new flagship devices — and several non-flagship ones — from mobile manufacturers like Essential, Huawei, LG, Sony, Samsung, Sharp Kyocera and General Mobile will receive the Android Oreo update.
