Here is the list of HTC devices, which will receive Android Oreo update by the end of Q4 2017 (December 2017).

Apart from the default Pixel Launcher for Android Oreo features like Adaptive notification dots, Google search widget with that cool animation along with the date and weather, the swipe from left Google now feed, you also get a lot of new features with this Pixel Launcher 2.1.

The first from the list, HTC U11, now runs on Android 7.1 Nougat out-of-the-box with HTC Sense UI atop, whereas HTC U Ultra now operates on Android 7.0 Nougat with HTC Sense UI atop. The folks over at XDA are expecting the team behind Substratum to have some sort of theme manager app for Android Oreo in a week or so, so keep your eyes open for that.

Google made the interesting decision to reveal the final name and consumer launch details of Android 8.0.

The fighting has killed 89 people and forced thousands of civilians - Rohingya and ethnic Rakhine - to flee their homes.

Another tweet mentioned that the update will be rolled out to all the HTC users worldwide.

Google on Monday finally rolled out the official Android 8.0 Oreo, bringing with it a host of stunning new features and improvements. Google introduced app shortcuts in Android Nougat, where you could access shortcuts for frequently performed action on supported apps by long pressing the app icon on your home screen or the app drawer.

In short, Substratum themes will now work on stock Android 8.0 Oreo devices without any need of rooting your phones, all thanks to Sony's Runtime Resource Overlay (RRO) theme engine that Google had acquired a few years back and had first integrated into Android with Marshmallow.

What's coming in Android 8.0 Oreo?
