Google has announced that the next major version of Android, version 8.0, will be called Android Oreo. The naming rumors came true.The name was revealed earlier today during a live stream following the solar eclipse. The name ‘OREO’ is from Nabisco license. This is second time Google became partner with a company for the name. In the past we have seen Android KikKat. As a result we have seen Android-branded KitKat bars around the world. I personally love Oreo, so I think maybe we can have Android branded Oreo boxes.
What’s new in Android Oreo ?
First of all, Android O is a highly stable version of Android N with a huge number of behind-the-scenes changes. This version has changes like Google Play Protect, background limit for apps for battery life improvement and Bluetooth Audio improvement. Android O will bring a much better Auto-fill implementation and also bring faster boosts plus support for Android Instant Apps.
There are also some UI changes like adaptive notification dots, wider support for picture-in-picture mode. We also have a new look for media notifications and the quick settings menu. It comes with over 60 new emoji, new look for media notifications and quick settings menu, and adaptive icons. Android O also has a redesigned settings menu, adaptive icons, notification channels, and, of course, the Octopus Easter egg.
This version is now support for Wi-Fi Aware, an energy-efficient way by which supported hardware can discover and chat with each other without a Wi-Fi hotspot or an internet connection. Android O is also a support for the new Bluetooth Low-Energy (BLE) 5.0 standard.
When will your phone get Android O update?
As expected, first phone to get Android 8.0 is the Google Pixels on the day of the launch itself. Android Oreo confirms to land on the OnePlus 5, as well as the OnePlus 3 and 3T .
HMD Global has confirmed Android Oreo updates for the Nokia 3,5 and 6 smartphones. A number of Xiaomi Redmi and Mi devices will also get the update. Google also notes that it’s been “working closely” with partners. And by the end of 2017, hardware makers including Huawei, HTC, Essential, General Mobile, HMD Global, Kyocera, LG, Motorola, Samsung, Sharp, and Sony will be able to launch or upgrade devices to Android Oreo.
