Google forgot to revise the Android distribution chart last month, now reporting some massive growth for Oreo compared to February numbers.
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.
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.
We may finally see Nougat break into double-digit Android distribution territory...next month. For now, 7.0 and 7.1's combined share is 7.1 percent.
The Android distribution chart for February 2017 includes month-to-month Marshmallow growth, Lollipop prevalence, and Nougat disappointment.

There’s no mention of the “Optimus VU” moniker though, but the filing reveals that the VS950 is packing NFC and LTE band 13 plus GSM 850/1900MHz compatibility. LG introduced its 4:3 aspect ratio phablet with the [...]
