Android 8.1 Oreo is still making its way across the rather fragmented Android ecosystem whilst Android 9.0 Pie is rolling out to a number of devices too. Even though Android Q is coming this year, many devices are still waiting for old updates. Here's the full list of devices which already have the Android Oreo update.

Which devices will get Android Oreo?

Asus Blackberry
Essential Google
HTC Huawei
Honor LG
Motorola Nokia
OnePlus Samsung
Sony Xiaomi

ZenFone 3 Yes
ZenFone 3 Laser Yes
ZenFone 3 Deluxe Yes
ZenFone 3 Zoom Yes
ZenFone 4 Yes
ZenFone 5/5Z Yes
ZenFone 4 Pro Yes

The latest Asus devices to receive the update are the Zenfone 3 Laser, ZenFone 3 Deluxe, and the ZenFone 3 Zoom. According to a tweet from Asus, the update was planned some time ago.

When the brand unveiled six new ZenFone 4 models, it promised at the event that the entire ZenFone 3 and ZenFone 4 lines would get the update to Android Oreo by the second half of 2018. The Taiwanese company didn't disappoint. The ZenFone 4 was updated first, then the ZenFone 3. The ZenFone 5 and 5Z also came equipped with Oreo as default.

The 8.0 update has rolled out to the Asus ZenFone 4 Pro via OTA which happened earlier than expected. The announcement was made on the Zen Talk forums on March 12. If the update wasn't automatic, you can do this manually in Settings > About > System Update.

Nokia has also begun the Oreo 8.1 rollout to its mid-range devices, the Nokia 5 and 6, as well as the Nokia 8. The update will bring a new settings menu, Bluetooth battery percentage, battery saving navigation buttons, a re-designed power menu, and weighs 860MB for the 5, and 930MB for the 6.

The popularity of Nokia phones is in a large part due to their affordability, and the Nokia 3 could just be the cheapest smartphone to run Android 8.0 Oreo and the Nokia 8 might be the cheapest flagship to do the same.

    Thanks for sharing a such good information regarding Android Oreo. I like much about Oreo is control over the battery and security as well as adjustment of night light intensity.

      Would not surprise me. I was on the "beta of the Mate 9 (we only got ONE beta), but many did not get the Oreo "legit" until AFTER the Mate 10 was official.

    Why so many complaints about how long it is taking Samsung to roll it out? Do you want it quick and had Pixel problems or do you want it correct?
