New Android OS has been introduced and its name is Android Oreo. But now only select smartphone users around the world can use this OS on their phone. Considering the older Android updates, the Android 8.0 Oreo will take months to reach the common handset. But this does not mean that you should not know how long your Android smartphone will get an update on Android OS. The good thing is that some companies have also announced the rollout plan for Android 8.0. Some have kept silence too. If you have a question about how long you will get the update, then for your convenience, we have prepared a list of phones that have been confirmed to receive the Android O update.
