android-o versionAndroid 8.0 is in its final version at the door. So it’s time to take a look at a list of what devices will get the update on Android O. Every year the same game: A new iteration of the mobile operating system from Google is in the house. This year, there is the update on Android 8.0 – the exact name is still missing us. The open beta of “Android O” has been around for months, now it is the time of the release of the final version.

Is Android O version for me?

So here is the main question: Is my smartphone getting the new update? And if so, when will it be so far? We want to bring a little light into the dark again this year and give you an overview, which Android devices receive the update or when it can be expected. Currently, this is beyond the Google devices, of course, everything is very spongy and much speculation. We will call you here, however, first the models, according to current facts, assume that they will receive the update. Later, we will update this article when the official confirmations are clearing.


First of all, we expect the new Android version on the devices of Google itself. According to their own information, these are the devices, which at least still get the update on Android 8.0.

  • Nexus 6P
  • Nexus 5X
  • Pixel C
  • Pixel
  • Pixel XL


The Taiwanese of HTC are often the first to come out of the bushes after the introduction of new android devices with a brisk announcement regarding the compatible smartphones. We are telling you that this time will not change. The brand new HTC U11 and also the other smartphones of the U-series should be safe candidates here for Android O.

  • HTC U11
  • HTC U Ultra
  • HTC U Play
  • HTC 10
  • HTC One A9s
  • HTC 10 Evo


The Chinese will surely supply all current top models with Android 8, officially confirmed is still nothing here. Logically that the P10 and its variants are considered, but also the Nova models and the last offshoots of the P and Mate series are hot candidates for Android O:

  • Huawei P9
  • Huawei P9 Plus
  • Huawei Mate 8
  • Huawei P10
  • Huawei P10 Plus
  • Huawei P10 Lite
  • Huawei Mate 9
  • Huawei Nova
  • Huawei Nova Plus

Honor by Huawei 

The Honor series, which is under the Huawei umbrella, will also provide the same for several devices for the update, although official announcements are expected here as soon as Android O is actually out there. We expect the update for the following models on the basis of Honor OS updates for two years:

  • Honor 6X
  • Honor 8
  • Honor 8 Pro
  • Honor 9


LG is in the market with its two iconic series handsets and smart devices: G and the V series. The handsets from the last and this year should be considered with Android 8.0. The soon appearing V30, as well as the LG G6, should be here rock-solid, but also owners of the V20 and the G5 should be on the safe side. The models under the premium class could look back into the tube.

  • LG G5
  • LG G6
  • LG V20
  • LG V30

Lenovo / Motorola

Lenovo’s or Motorola’s proximity to Google, it should be owed that the smartphones of this manufacturer a) with almost unchanged, pure Android appears and always extremely fast with updates are provided. This should also be the case this time with Android 8.0 the case and these are the candidates we have in view for this new iteration of the operating system:

  • Moto Z
  • Moto Z Play
  • Moto Z2 Play
  • Moto Z2 Force
  • Moto G5
  • Moto G5 Plus


Also HMD Global, the company, which is in charge of the current Nokia handsets, is willing to bring as soon as possible Android 8.0 on its current models. Compared to Techradar , the update has already been announced for the Nokia 3, 5 and 6, but we can assume that the coming Nokia 8 is logical. The Nokia smartphones come with almost pure Android, whereby the adjustment could go floaty over the stage.

  • Nokia 3
  • Nokia 5
  • Nokia 6
  • Nokia 8


OnePlus founder Pete Lau has learned very quickly out of the window and told the OnePlus fans via Twitter that both the OnePlus 3T and the OnePlus 3 the update on Android O will be received. While the OnePlus 2 probably does not have to hope for the new software, the current OnePlus 5 completes the candidate list of the company regarding Android 8.0:

  • OnePlus 3
  • OnePlus 3T
  • OnePlus 5


Officially, we also have to wait at Samsung until we definitely know which handsets or tablets can get the update. Of course the flag ships like the Galaxy S8 and the upcoming Galaxy Note 8 can expect Android O, but also the Galaxy S7 and the 2017er models of the A series are likely to be off the lot. Sammobile assumes that definitely, the following devices will get Android 8.0.

Sony is a special candidate for the updates: Firstly, because there are a lot of new devices for an update, we also know the Japanese as a company that does not waste much time on the announcement as well Also when implementing new updates. Let’s see how fast this time will go. We expect Android 8.0 for the following devices, but we are sure that Sony will still drill this list.
