List of Smartphones Expected to Get Android O Update


Looking at the past, we expect the Google O public release will happen along with the launch of second-gen Google Pixel devices. Below is the list of the devices that are expected to receive the Android O update. We will be updating the list as we got more confirmed information from the manufacturers.

Google

Since the Google’s own Nexus and Pixel devices already got the Android O developer preview, these devices will also be the first devices to receive the public release. If there is no agreement made with its partner manufacturers, the upcoming Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL should be the first devices to run on the all-new Android O out of the box. The Google Nexus 6 and Nexus 5 will be missing out the Android O update.

  • Google Pixel 2 XL
  • Google Pixel
  • Google Pixel XL
  • Google Nexus 5X
  • Google Nexus 6P

Motorola

Motorola is the one manufacturer that has been constantly releasing the latest Android updates. However, the things have changed after the Lenovo acquisition. The Moto E3 Power which came with Android 6.0 marshmallow out of the box hasn’t even received a single update. Since most of the latest Moto devices came with Android 7.0 Nougat out of the box, we expect them to receive the Android O update in the first few months after its intial release.
  • Moto Z2
  • Moto Z2 Play
  • Moto X4
  • Moto G5S
  • Moto G5S Plus
  • Moto G5
  • Moto G5 Plus
  • Moto E4
  • Moto E4 Plus
  • Moto Z
  • Moto Z Play

Samsung

Though Samsung is not that fast in releasing the software updates, most of its high-end devices will surely receive the latest Android updates.
  • Samsung Galaxy Note 8
  • Samsung Galaxy S8
  • Samsung Galaxy S8 Plus
  • Samsung Galaxy Note 7 FE
  • Samsung Galaxy S7
  • Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge
  • Samsung Galaxy C9 Pro

LG

If you remember, the LG V20 launched in the second half of 2016, it is the world’s first smartphone to launch with Android 7.0 Nougat out of the box. This year, we will be expecting the LG V30 to launch at the same time as the new Google Pixel devices launch. However, there is no information whether the upcoming LG V30 will be the first device to run on Android O or not.

Huawei

Huawei releases the latest Android updates faster than other Chinese manufacturers. However, the company is much beyond the release dates of the other major manufacturers.
  • Huawei Mate 9
  • Huawei P10
  • Huawei P10 Plus

OnePlus

OnePlus has a very limited market reach and very limited device launches. Last year, the company launched the OnePlus 3 in the first half and OnePlus 3T with few internal changes in the second half. While the Chinese variants of OnePlus devices run on Hydrogen OS, the international variants get the Oxygen OS. Soon, we will also see the launch of OnePlus 5.
  • OnePlus 5
  • OnePlus 3
  • OnePlus 3T

Blackberry

After Blackberry quitting the hardware business, we have seen a couple of decent smartphones that manufactured by its partners. Since the Blackberry will be offering software updates for all the latest Blackberry branded devices, we expect all the new devices to receive the latest Android O update.
  • Blackberry KEYone
  • Blackberry Aurora
  • Blackberry DTEK50
  • Blackberry DTEK60

Nokia

At the MWC 2017, Nokia re-entered the mobile phone market by launching the Nokia 3310 feature phone along with three Android-powered smartphones. All these devices come with Android Nougat out of the box.
  • Nokia 6
  • Nokia 5
  • Nokia 3
  • Nokia 8

HTC

Last year, HTC is one of the first manufacturers to put out the Android 7.0 Nougat roadmap. We expect the company continues the same trend for the Android O Update.
  • HTC U11
  • HTC U Ultra
  • HTC U Play
  • HTC 10
