So far, there aren’t too many other Android phones running Oreo. According to the latest Android version distribution numbers, Oreo is only installed on .3% of all Android devices. All of Google’s Pixel phones are running Oreo, as are the OnePlus 3/3T and Nokia 8. There are also Oreo beta programs in place for a handful of other devices like the Samsung Galaxy S8, LG V30, Essential Phone, and OnePlus 5, so we should see that .3% jump up quite a bit over the next couple months.
If you own an unlocked U11, be sure to leave a comment when you receive your update. We’ll let you know when the update begins rolling out.
