Essential Phones Stable Oreo Update Rolling Out
When will my phone get Android Oreo? That’s a question we’re hearing again and again. Many OEMs have officially release beta programs to test 8.0, while others have confirmed a list of devices receiving the update. In addition, rumors have leaked about phones that might receive Oreo at some point this year. Let’s take a look at everything.
Essential told to android users that they are not receiving a stable release of Android Oreo 8.0, even though it’s been available through the company’s beta program.
Essential says that it will bring Oreo Update to phones with a public release of 8.1 because of “several stability issues” in 8.0. The company says making this change pushes the public release back a couple weeks, although it still doesn’t specify an exact date for the rollout.
It is a moment of triumph for Essential PH-1 device owners who’d been waiting for the latest Android update.
Now, Essential Phone users already received the OTA update notification but if you did not already, then navigate to “Settings > System > System update” to check for the Android 8.1 Oreo update. Once you’ve updated your device, you will be running the latest version of the android OS.
In this update, you will benefit from all the new features, such as picture-in-picture mode(PiP mode), smart selection, Autofill API, improved notification system, added to Android with 8.0 Oreo. You also get increased performance, better battery life, stronger security measures, and a lot more.
In addition, 8.1 rolled out a fix for sluggish scrolling issues that had cropped up in the devices.
