Here is Everything You Need to Know About Android 8.0 Oreo

Google yesterday decided to finally unveil the moniker of the next iteration of Android. Simply known as "O". If you are still using Kitkat or lollipop, its time to dust it off and upgrade to atleast Android 6.0.

Google code named Android 8.0 Oreo
Android Oreo is supposed to be faster, smarter and more powerful than any of the previous versions of the mobile platform.

Google also says that by the end of the year you should expect devices from Essential, General Mobile, HMD Global, Huawei, HTC, Kyocera, LG, Motorola, Samsung, Sharp, and Sony to either launch with or be upgraded to Android Oreo.

Here is a Quick Run Down of Android 8.0 Oreo
  • Background limits: Android Oreo helps minimize background activity in the apps you use least, it's the super power you can't even see.
  • Autofill: With your permission, Autofill remembers your logins to get you into your favorite apps at supersonic speed.
  • Picture-in-Picture: Allows you to see two apps at once, it's like having super strength and laser vision.
  • Notification Dots: Press the notification dots to quickly see what's new, and easily clear them by swiping away.
  • Android Instant Apps: Teleport directly into new apps right from your browser, no installation needed.

  • Google Play Protect: Working to keep your device and data safe from misbehaving apps by scanning over 50 billion apps per day, even the ones you haven't installed yet!
  • Emoji: Share the feels with a fully redesigned emoji set, including over 60 new emoji.
  • Project Treble: The biggest change to the foundations of Android to date: a modular architecture that makes it easier and faster for hardware makers to deliver Android updates.
  • Notification categories: - More granular and consistent control over which notifications can appear and how intrusive they are.
  • Notification snoozing: Lets users hide notifications for a period of time, similar to Inbox snoozing.

    1. I doubt Android 8 update will come to Oukitel u20+.
      It will be pushed to phones that has hardware that can handle it. The oukitel is cool but lacks some needed features.
