As expected, Android 8.0 is called Oreo and is currently rolling out as an OTA update for Pixel and Nexus devices. Google says major OEMs will upgrade their devices to Android 8.0 Oreo by the end of this year.
Google has finally announced that Android O will be called Android 8.0 Oreo. After teasing names like Oatmeal Cookie, Octopus and even Orangina, Google has decided to stick with Orio. The announcement came via a live stream matching the total solar eclipse in the United States, and a Google+ post suggested that O would actually stand for Oreo.
Google has also unveiled the new version for its latest Desert-named mobile operating system version and pushed the update to the Android Open Source Project (AOSP). The successor to Android Nougat is expected to start rolling out first as an OTA update on Google’s Pixel and Nexus devices. “The Pixel and Nexus 5X / 6P builds have entered career testing and we look forward to rolling out in phases in the next few weeks,” Dave Burke, VP of engineering, wrote in a blog post.
Burke added that device makers including Andy Rubin’s Essential, General Mobile, Nokia brand-licensed HMD Global, Huawei, HTC, Kiosera, LG, Motorola, Samsung, Sharp and Sony plan to launch new Android 8.0 devices on their existing devices.

Android Beta users will receive the latest version update from today, and Google has released a picture of the system for those who plan to flash the operating system manually. The list of compatible devices includes Pixel, Pixel XL, Nexus 6P, Nexus 5X, Pixel C Tablet and Nexus Player.
In terms of features, Android 8.0 Oreo is a growing upgrade over Android 7.0 Nougat that is working hard to improve system performance. One of the highlights of the new version is the fast boot speed, with Google claiming that the Pixel will boot twice as fast as Android Orio. The update brings new features such as notification dots, support for the Autofill API, Picture in Picture (PIP) mode, adaptive icons, Google Play Protect, high-fidelity audio playback with new Bluetooth codecs, and wide-color gamet support across the app.
For everyday use, Android 8.0 Oreo users should notice improvements in battery life, including background app limitations and OS-level optimizations for smooth app performance. The update brings support for 60 newly redesigned emoji and XML fonts.
Google first announced Android O in the form of Developer Preview in March and launched the public beta during the I / O 2017 Developer Conference in May. The fourth and final developer preview was announced last month and is now available as a final version. About 13.5 percent of the active devices are running Android 7.0 Nougat almost a year after its launch. With Android 8.0 Orio, Google hopes to force its OEM partners to quickly push updates and fix the fragmentation issue.
