Android 8.0 Beta to Arrive Sooner than Expected According to Google
As all Android fans already know, Google’s latest Nougat operating system is running on cold fumes. What we mean by this is that Android 7.0 Nougat is going to be replaced soon enough. It all started as a rumor but then Google decided to stop keeping things under wraps and unveil that it’s already adding the finishing touches to the developer preview of Android 8.0. Even better, Google’s Senior VP has already hinted that the upcoming operating system is going to be codenamed Oreo.
Android 8.0 Release
Google has made a tradition to launch new operating systems during its annual developer conference “Google I/O” event but this time the Android parent is taking a different route. According to Google, Android 8.0 is closer that we might think. Even though many might be upset that Nougat OS is coming to an end, Google is going to make sure that Android 8.0 is so much better than it.
In regards to Android 8.0’s launch date Google stated the following in an interview: “Thank you for your interest in the Android Beta Programme. The beta for Android Nougat has concluded, and all devices that were opted in have been updated to the current public version”. Google has also added the following: “If you are still running a beta version of Nougat you may download the latest full OTA image for your device and sideload it. This will not wipe your device. We’ll update this site when the Android O Beta Programme beings”.
In order to make things clear, we have to mention that Google is talking about the beta version of Android O. This means that we still have to wait a few more months until the public version finally comes out. Rumor has it that Google wants to launch the new operating system alongside the highly anticipated Pixel 2 smartphone.
This is highly plausible since Google will ensure Pixel 2’s success by pairing it with its latest operating system. As many might already know, Pixel smartphones are known for representing the best that Google has to offer and equipping them with Android O is highly likely to happen.
