Essential Phone enters third Android Oreo beta round
Instead, the 8.0 update will have to wait at least another update to go wide and far. The company is apparently wrapping up the logistics on distribution, but “we’re getting close” is the sentiment we’re supposed to take from this.
In the meantime, here’s the link to the third beta update for Oreo on the Essential Phone. Be prepared to use ADB.
Earlier today we released Oreo Beta 3 over OTA. You can learn more about Oreo Beta and download the release here: https://t.co/oonhRC1b16
