Android 8.0 Oreo Custom ROM reaches Selected Samsung, OnePlus, Motorola, Xiaomi smartphones

Google has shared its latest Android Distribution data collected during a seven day period ending September 11, and there's no sign of Android Oreo. Now the smartphone has been spotted on the GFXBench benchmarking website with Android 8.0.0 Oreo operating system, as per a report of The Android Soul.

With the launch of the Pixel 2 expected within weeks, this type of thing should really have been ironed out, though, in reality, we all know that these things happen. There's still more befuddlement to be had, however, as the update has appeared for some titled "Android 7.1.2" (above, left).

The Android 8.0 was announced this year on 21 August and promised to be first upgraded on the smartphones like Pixel and Nexus smartphones.

Pixel and Pixel XL users on Verizon are reportedly receiving a new update with build OPR3.170623.007 with 2017-09-01 Security Patch.

Android Oreo has been a rather buggy OS so far.

According to recently posted findings on forums and sites such as Reddit, the operating system apparently bypasses and neglects the user's Wi-Fi connection and instead eats up the plan's mobile data. This is said to be the fastest and the safest version of Android yet and it comes with some interesting features and background improvements.

So does that mean it's a downgrade OTA?

See Google's developers dashboard for the full latest stats.

Android 8.0 Oreo already rolled out to most Pixel and Nexus devices, and although it offers quite a few useful and interesting features, it also has a few annoying bugs on board.

This might seem like a normal and a useful message, but in reality, the Android Oreo users are getting this notification before they have actually used all of their mobile data.
