Android 8.1 Oreo update roundup: factory images and OTAs are here
We first heard mention of Android 8.1 Oreo when Google announced that its very first SoC, the Pixel Visual Core, was inside the Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL. The chip won’t be turned on until Android 8.1 arrives, and wouldn’t you know it—Android 8.1 Oreo has finally arrived!
Google says the consumer-ready version of 8.1 will be ready by the end of the year, but right now it’s available as a developer preview for Google’s current Pixel and Nexus devices. Specifically, Android 8.1 is available for the Google Pixel 2, Pixel 2 XL, Pixel, Pixel XL, Pixel C, Nexus 6P, and Nexus 5X. All of the new builds are listed as OPP5.170921.005.
