ASUS ZenFone 4 expected to get Android Oreo update this month

We’ve seen leaked screenshots of Android Oreo for the ZenFone 3 and 4 a week ago and now it seems that does signal that the update is coming sooner. An ASUS forum moderator that goes by the handle Green1_ASUS has all but confirmed that the ZenFone 4, specifically the ZE554KL. According to the post, which was originally written in Chinese and translated, “Hi andymazda, ZE554KL is currently expected to provide upgrades in December Android O…”

If this is true, then ZenFone 4 users will gain access to many Android 8.0 features like picture-in-picture mode, notification channels and dots, smart text selection, and many more.

Android Oreo update for Samsung Galaxy Note8 Verizon version leaks online

For Galaxy Note8 users, the wait for the Android Oreo might not be that long. A leaked version of the Android Oreo over-the-air update for the Samsung flagship phablet shows up online, but it’s specifically for the Verizon version in the US (SM-M950U). It does suggest, though, that we might expect the official update to come out soon. It can’t be said what version of the update this is but according to GSMArena it doesn’t seem like the final build. It does run on Android 8.0.0 along with Samsung Experience 9.0. It’s supposedly working fine for some Reddit users but it, of course, comes with the usual word of caution when it comes to flashing a build found online and installed on your phone.


HTC U11 to get Android 8.0 Oreo update starting November 27

We reported last month that HTC was reportedly releasing the Android 8.0 Oreo update for the HTC U11 between the end of November and early December. And it looks like HTC is fulfilling this wish. HTC’s Mo Versi just announced on Twitter that the Oreo operating system update is coming to the unlocked versions of the HTC U11 starting today, November 27. So if you own an unlocked version of the device, keep your eye out for that. The other HTC devices expected to get Android 8.0 update include the U Ultra and HTC 10. No word yet when those two devices are getting the update, though.

Sony Xperia XZ and XZs get Android Oreo update

Sony seems to be committing heavily to bringing the latest Android operating system to its devices. Two of its “older” devices are getting the Android 8.0 update: the Xperia XZ and XZs. Android Oreo brings to the two smartphones features like Oreo’s app shortcuts, smart text selection, the Autofill API, picture-in-picture, and notification dot. Sony is also introducing Xperia Actions and Reminders. The former focuses on suggesting settings based on how you use the device, the latter is described as “useful prompts for unfinished tasks, including emails in draft and messages.” The update comes in at 1232MB so watch for it to come to your device. According to Xperia Blog, the Xperia X Performance is also getting the Android Oreo update soon.
