Throughout the Oreo 8.0 beta, a number of issues pushed back the company's update timeframe and necessitated subsequent patches. That being said, both the Honor 8 Pro and Honor 9 have been announced last year, the Honor 8 Pro is the company's phablet, while the Honor 9 is still the company's compact flagships, at least until it successor arrives later this year.
What does Oreo bring?The update was scheduled for a release in the next "few months", although clearly that has not happened, and the bad news is that it looks like it may never happen.
Essential ditches Android 8.0 Oreo upgrade for PH-1, will skip to 8.1 due to 'stability issues'
Andy Rubin's divisive first Essential Phone clearly didn't set the world on fire with either sales through its exclusive United States carrier partner or apparent overall demand. From what we know, all phones will get the update via the over-the-air method. You could see Picture-in-Picture mode on various third party apps, new notification dots, redesigned notification panel, a whole new user interface, better performance of the device and much more. In fact, the Nokia 8 has already received Android 8.1 Oreo beta, indicating the stable version could be seeded soon.
Customers that are now in the beta program will also receive the stable OTA. There have been three releases of the Oreo beta so far, but Essential says it's identified several stability issues that have been hard to solve. By this we mean this small team might not be able to fix huge problems. So instead of worrying about the stability issues with Android 8, moving to Android 8.1 hopefully will resolve most of those problems. Therefore, it's going to direct all its efforts to move the Essential Phone directly from Nougat to Android 8.1. Essential cites "several stability issues" in Android 8.0 that are triggering this change.More news: Pistons' Drummond to replace injured Wall in All Star Game
