Essential Phone to skip Android 8.0 due to 'stability issues'

No Android 8.0 Oreo For Essential PH-1, Will Get Android 8.1 Instead

That will likely push the release back by several more weeks, but there will be a beta program for 8.1 soon.

Throughout the Oreo 8.0 beta, a number of issues pushed back the company's update timeframe and necessitated subsequent patches.

Android 8.0 Oreo is undoubtedly the most advanced Android update till date and for that very same reason, people around the world have been waiting for this update on their respective Android smartphones. Although the Essential Phone already received three rounds of public Android 8.0 Oreo beta tests, "several stability issues" still stand.

The WhatsApp new update for the Android users aims at ensuring that they can enjoy the same controls as the iOS counterparts do.

Meghan Markle Channels Rachel Zane For 1st Royal Evening Affair With Harry
It's no surprise Meghan handled the hard moment so well - after all, she's been in the spotlight for most of her adult life. Markle took to the stage to hand out an award, telling the crowd: "I'm truly privileged to be here".

Android 8.0 Oreo on the Essential Phone first became available around the same time as 8.1 started hitting Pixel devices, but the company was quick to confirm that it would be launching that update after 8.0 was finalized. 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. You wouldn't want to end up in the same boat as users of a certain Android One device, right? By this we mean this small team might not be able to fix huge problems.

As far as we have heard, we have not heard of phone manufacturers running into any issues with Android 8.0.

Essential is skipping the release of Android 8.0 for Android 8.1 due to instability concerns. Have you updated to Android 8 yet? Let us know in the comments about your expectations for this update and if you think it is a good idea to skip Android 8 and move to Android 8.1.
