Google Pixel to be first to receive Android O

Posted June 09, 2017

The next version of Android has been revealed to get the 8.0 version number. So, now, Android rolls out its next update. The other option is to download the factory images and manually flash them over to the device. The new update will surely shake the entire Android market and for the very same reason, Google's Pixel series will be high on demand. This should translate to a much shorter gap between updates for those with non-Pixel devices.

Google had announced its first developer preview version of Android O back in March with numerous feature improvements. Even though Ruddock claims the information comes from a reliable source, it's worth noting that these release dates sometimes change due to unforeseen issues. So, it looks like the Pixel phones may receive the update in the month of August, where the date is subjected to change anytime.

With the Beta Program now in full swing, there are two ways in which you can apply this latest update.

Both Android O and iOS 11 will come with smart voice assistance, better speed and augmented reality. Earlier, it was expected that the next version of the OS would be released about the same time as the new Pixel devices, which is usually in October. It must be noted that the Android O Beta was compatible with the Nexus 5, Nexus 6P and Pixel C. The Android O Developer Preview 3 has been labeled OPP3.170518.006. It should immediately or at least sooner be able to get the update like its siblings. You can find more details at Android security bulletin. Also included are Autofill APIs, Picture in Picture, XML font resources, downloadable fonts, emoji compatibility.

Google said the most serious security vulnerability the update patches is a Media Framework issue "that could enable a remote attacker using a specially crafted file to cause memory corruption during media file and data processing". The part of the app is to keep the data and the device safe. This app takes the liberty to find and stop harmful app fro your device.
