The latest Android distribution chart looks just as bad as the one from last month, with Nougat in the lead, Marshmallow in second place, and Oreo at only 5.7 percent.
Google forgot to revise the Android distribution chart last month, now reporting some massive growth for Oreo compared to February numbers.
The phone came out in late 2015. The Nougat update was in August of 2016. And in February of 2018, the phone gets Nougat with a security patch from December of 2017.
Android Oreo's growth rate along with Nougat's look pretty much on track with figures from 12 months ago, pitiful as it is.
The December 2017 Android distribution numbers are in, and version 8.0 Oreo still can't rival the prevalence of Marshmallow, Lollipop, KitKat or Jelly Bean.
Sprint units apparently got this update in the past two months, but not GSM and Verizon units until just about two weeks ago.
Two more of Samsung's modest, budget-friendly Galaxy J-series devices are moving to Android Nougat OTA as we speak on Verizon and Sprint.
Growth is on par with Nougat at this infant stage, but for Nougat, it is maturing slower than how Marshmallow did with users.
The newest Android distribution chart is the first to include 8.0 Oreo, at just 0.2 percent share, with Nougat gaining 2 percent over the past 30 days.
So what if the Moto X Pure Edition runs "pure" Android? The 2015 phone still waited more than a year to get its official 7.0 Nougat update.
Forgotten by many and updated to Android 7.0 Nougat by T-Mobile, Sprint and AT&T a long time ago, the HTC One M9 finally makes the jump on Verizon as well.
With Oreo not in yet, Nougat continues to trail Marshmallow and Lollipop's Android distribution scores, at least making the podium for the first time.
Before TCL took over BlackBerry smartphone production and marketing, the BlackBerry Priv was released running Android Lollipop and will stay on Marshmallow.
This company likes to use periods in its branding. It also calls the phone it's trying to sell the "mediocre chinese food you've been craving all week."
Anyone remember the original Nexus 6? Anyone still using Google and Motorola's 2014 phablet? Here's your stable Android 7.1.1 update at last.
The Facebook group that posted this development claims the device was a Redmi Note 4X, but the device claims to be just a Redmi Note 4.
We've seen proof of lousy software support before, but Lenovo takes things to the next level by leaving the Phab 2 Pro on Marshmallow for good.
The numbers for August 2017 are up and, as always, we're dealing with underperformance from Android 7.0 and 7.1 versus Marshmallow.
What is going on with this update? The soak test finished up long ago and the official software support window has collapsed.
LG G4 users unaffected by the bootloop epidemic should be delighted to see the official Android 7.0 Nougat update kicked off in the OEM's homeland.
The phone was not supposed to be getting this software update, but alas, it has. And only nine months after the last security patch.
There's little to be happy about in Google's latest Android distribution report. Nougat has crossed the 10-percent milestone, but it still trails KitKat.
Following a minor holdup, we're happy to report Sony Xperia XA and XA Ultra users are treated to Nougat updates again, this time all nice and stable.
