U11 Android Oreo update release time line revealed

A lead developer of the Substratum theming engine has now confirmed that he is actively using Substratum themes on Android Oreo without a root access or a custom ROM. Pixel and Nexus users will be among the first to get the new update, which is not surprising at all.

As noted, it was in June 2017 when HTC U11 received its very first update.

By downloading these things, you can give your device a new look but you can't the features of the Android O on your device without actually updating it to Android Oreo.

Google made the interesting decision to reveal the final name and consumer launch details of Android 8.0.

One of the main issues that users have with the update is with Android Auto, which helps users connect their phone to cars.

Android Oreo comes with several improvements over the Android Nougat such as faster booting, extend battery life by cutting down on unnecessary activities of apps in the back ground, more fluid experiences to phones and tablets as well as improvements in security via Google Play Protect that checks suspicious activities and malwares in application.

For instance, if you receive a new email, you can view the notification by long pressing on the Gmail app icon and even open or dismiss it from here and the same notification will also be dismissed from the notification panel. This means that companies can start customising the Android 8.0 Oreo in accordance with their device's UI styling.

Thanks to the developers, you can download the Android Oreo Pixel Launcher APK right now on your Android phone running the version of Android Marshmallow 6.0 or above. Autofill framework allows automatic log-in for apps where users have granted permission in Android Oreo. The update introduced few system enhancements but does not bring along any noticeable change.
