New and old, low and high-end (and mid-range), all of HMD Global's Nokia-branded smartphones are now officially guaranteed to receive Android P updates... eventually.
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.
To be fair, Android 7.1.1 Nougat was released in December 2016. But that still made for a painfully long wait for Verizon owners of the mid-end Moto G4 Play.
Many Essential Phones supposedly are getting this update faster than Google's own Pixel 2. Meanwhile, those on Sprint are getting left behind.
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.
Priced at $150 on-contract, and $250 outright, the "new" Samsung Galaxy Tab E on Verizon stands out with pre-loaded Android 7.1... and not much else.
Growth is on par with Nougat at this infant stage, but for Nougat, it is maturing slower than how Marshmallow did with users.
To make up for lost time and a predictable software support halt, T-Mobile is sending the Samsung Galaxy J7 an OTA Android 7.1 Nougat upgrade.
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.
Amazon's Fire OS 6 is (almost) here, with minimal buzz and fuss, debuting on the Fire TV Gen 3 with Android Nougat-powered functionality.
Pre-orders can be had starting today for $399 with trade-in offers for Nexus holdouts. It's the first Android One phone in the US.
There's likely nothing wrong with your Google Pixel or Pixel XL phone recently upgraded to Android Oreo, and you don't need to downgrade to Nougat.
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.
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 numbers for August 2017 are up and, as always, we're dealing with underperformance from Android 7.0 and 7.1 versus Marshmallow.
Priced at $40 with prepaid AT&T plans, the 5-inch ZTE Maven 2 has a Snapdragon 210 processor, 1GB RAM and now Android 7.1 going for it.
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.
Xiaomi has already released a few new phones running Android Nougat, also updating a couple of old ones, and planning many other UI makeovers.
Android Nougat updates are finally spreading to more members of last year's Asus ZenFone 3 family, including the Max 5.2 and Zoom.
Just like Sony, Lenovo seems to be tying up loose Nougat ends before starting work on Android O, with a 7.1.1 update delivered to the Moto G4 Play.
