Samsung, Motorola and Huawei Gets Android 8.0 Update

HTC reveals Android 8.0 Oreo timeline for HTC U11, U Ultra and HTC 10

Google's Android 8.0 comes with some new features like "Picture-in-Picture mode", which will let users watch a YouTube video, do a video chat, etc while keeping another app open.

These, Moens said, will include a drone flight that projects a holographic version of the Android and Oreo superhero, some Android and Oreo-branded cookie giveaways, and four short films featuring the new character. This seems slightly ambitious, but at the same time, if you're going to release an expensive flagship device, you should also be able to keep it up-to-date. However, until then you can try to give your phone the feel of Android Oreo, by installing the Pixel Launcher port from the Android 8.0. And one of the many reasons why most folks prefer Android over any other operating systems is the fact that Android offers users to tweak and customize it on multiple levels to their liking. The feature enables a multitasking by allowing you to use two apps at once. The company tweeted today that it will update its devices to the new OS starting in the fourth quarter of 2017, starting with the U11.

The new update is reported to improve mobile device efficiency and user experience - generally polishing the Nougat 7.0. We already noted the Rescue Party for bootlooping devices, additional emojis, and the major features like Wide-gamut Color, Downloadable Fonts, In-app Shortcut Pinning, and Adaptive Icons among others.

In ISIS-held Raqqa, No Escape for Thousands of Civilians, Amnesty Warns
The U.S. -backed Syrian Democratic Forces militia is on the ground in Raqqa, a militant hotbed, battling the terror group. At least 30 civilians were killed in that campaign, it said.

Android Oreo mainly focuses on battery life, speed and security, with greater control of apps. Some of the recently launched device support wide-gamut color and many third party applications get benefitted due to this.

HTC has just confirmed Android Oreo (Android 8.0) timeline for its smartphones.
