When will my phone get Android Oreo? This question will be asked by many also in 2018. Most OEMs have answered this question in one way or another. Either release a stable OTA or confirm that your device will not receive the update. We have consolidated all these answers and here we stand.
At the time of writing this article, Android 9.0 Pie has appeared on a handful of devices. While it will probably be until at least mid-2019, with a good portion of the phones running this version, almost all major releases since 2017 should have the second-to-last version of Android. Unlike previous years, this update will be important.
Google has introduced a policy that all new apps and updates must be targeted for the second most recent version of Android, with a deadline of one year after its release. At the moment, the first deadline for Android Oreo has expired, for which all new apps are aimed at this version. On November 1
About This List
For the purposes of this article, there are three levels: Unconfirmed, Confirmed and Beta. Unacknowledged lists any phone that does not currently have an Oreo update or has been confirmed by the OEM it will not receive. For phones that the OEM has specified that they will release the update, it is confirmed, but the OTA is not yet available. Beta is unstable for the few devices running an Oreo beta version.
The list of phones manufactured in 2017 is relatively short, as the PH-1 is the first device ever released by the young company. With only one phone to support, you'd think Essential would have an easier time getting updates, but it was not released until mid-March (though it was an 8.1 update, so we'll give them a little indulgence).
One of the key benefits of buying a Pixel or Nexus device is the timely update of Android operating systems. As with previous software updates, Google always publishes the latest version of Android in its own product line, which includes Nexus and Pixel. For Nexus this is the last official update from Google, as we have already seen that Android 9.0 Pie is not received.
HTC has expanded its entire flagship with Android Oreo. Every phone from the HTC 10 to the HTC U12 + runs the second-to-last version of Android. Good Work HTC

LG has historically been poor when it comes to updating their phones. They plan to do this with their new Software Center, but so far we've just seen a few more security patches.

In the past, Motorola was one of the best Android OEMs when it came to fast updates. This year was no exception, as the majority of the lineup has already received a stable over-the-air update. Only the E Series will not receive the update because the G Series is waiting for mobile operators to bring the update out.
Nokia has only been in the Android scene for two years and has already done so making a name for itself with constant updates. All 2018 phones released in the US are part of the Android One program, which manages updates from Google. For 2017 phones, Nokia has pretty many all up to Oreo, with a chance of them also receiving Android 9.0 Pie.
