Google's Android 8.0 Oreo now running on 0.3% devices

Android 8.0 Oreo sees a measly gain in November distribution numbers

However, this time, Google has been a bit late in sharing these details.

HTC U11 has been listed on Geekbench running the Android 8.0 Oreo hinting that the software testing is in full swing and if previous release pattern is taken as any indication, the company might deploy the final version to the public en masse by this month end or early December. Meanwhile, HMD Global has revealed that they will soon be releasing the Android Oreo update to the Nokia 8 handsets. At.3%, Android Oreo is available on new devices like the Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL, as well as Sony's latest Xperia XZ1 line.

Notably, Oreo is now running on a limited number of devices as the list includes Pixel, Pixel XL, Nexus devices as well as a few more from other manufacturers and OEMs.

Which version of Android do you have on your smartphone? The almost two-and-half year old Android 6.0 Marshmallow continues to dominate with 30.9 per cent of Android devices, though it is down from 32 per cent in October.

In the month of September, both versions of Android Nougat were up slightly, and had a total share of 15.8 percent. It is followed by Android 5.1 Lollipop at 20.8 percent. Also, this means that low internal storage devices - midrange and budget phones - will still have to run Android Oreo to take advantage of this upcoming feature.

Total devices on Android Jelly Bean now amount to a total of 6.2 per cent. Android Ice Cream Sandwich and Gingerbread are running on 0.5 per cent devices each.
