Android new version, Oreo, is set to run on some smartphones which may include Google Pixel 2, Google Pixel 2 XL and Huawei Mate 10. However, for the first time this October, Oreo entered Google’s Android distribution chart.
Before now, smartphones with Oreo accounted for less than 0.1% of Android smartphone market share with only a few Pixel and Nexus devices updating to the OS version and Google doesn’t consider any Android version with less than 0.1% distribution in its charts.
However, the October 2017 chart shows that Android 8.0 Oreo market share has now increased to 0.2% while Marshmallow continues to be at the top of the pile with 32% market share closely followed by Lollipop with 27.7% and Android Nougat has 17.8%. Other versions that made the chart include Android KitKat (14.5%), Android Jelly Bean (7.6%), Android Ice Cream Sandwich (0.6%) and Android Gingerbread (0.6%).
Android Oreo comes with a smart notification system with some improvements for battery and RAM management. Picture-in-Picture mode (PiP), adaptive icons and quicker access are some other features of this OS version.
