Essential releases Android Oreo beta for its smartphone

By : |November 15, 2017 0

Andy Rubin’s Essential is the latest manufacturer to release Android Oreo beta for its smartphone. The company says eager participants can download the latest Android OS refresh from its website by heading over to its developer portal.

Oreo was just released for Pixel phones back in August, and came to the Galaxy S8 and S8+ in beta earlier this month, which means Essential Phones are among the first smartphones to receive the update. Oreo comes with a few significant changes, including badge notifications for individual apps, a redesigned settings menu and a number of behind-the-scenes improvements designed to help with system speed, overall performance, and battery life.

Essential teased a customer on Twitter about something coming soon after being asked if the company would keep true to its word that Oreo would be available for the Phone within two months of September 14. Now, just in time, Essential has announced that the beta is officially available on the Phone. To get the beta, you’ll have to sign up for the beta builds and then grab the update as a download to sideload to your device.


Lastly, this software is a beta and, as such, could contain bugs that could affect the handset in a variety of ways. Basically, proceed with caution.
