Android P: Smartphones that should receive the update [updated]

Every year comes a new version of Android, that’s how it’s been a while. We received Android Oreo in 2017, which currently stands at 1.1% of active smartphones with the system, data collected by Google in February. Android Nougat now that it began to dominate, after almost two years, has 28.5% of the slice.

According to Google itself, the system begins to gain strength after more than a year of official launch, the primary reason lies in the time that smartphone manufacturers have to update old devices and launch new ones with the updated systems. See the main new features of Android P .

A list has been updated by our team with the smartphones that should receive Android Oreo , check it out too. So stick with the list of smartphones that should receive the Android P. Remembering that we will update it, as the manufacturers confirm the information, so far, it is just speculation.

It does not sell in Brazil. The company did not comment on the updates. In addition, the company’s handsets may not receive Android P because the company may stop using the Google operating system.

And then, although we are still not sure and as I said, this list for now is nothing more than speculation, I believe we will see the 2018 releases and the 2017 flagships.

The upgrade to new version is becoming increasingly complicated and time-consuming by manufacturers. It’s hard to see a smartphone evolve twice the system, disregarding Google devices.
