Back in September, Googler Elliott Hughes had posted on Google+ that the Check for update button had started working with updates getting shown on the smartphone once the button got clicked.
This leak suggests that Samsung is making progress behind the scenes and Galaxy Note 8 owners should keep an out for Android Oreo (and additional leaks) as we push into the new year.
Android 8.1 update caused some Pixel C tablets to factory reset, Google says it's fixed
Google is now rolling out the Android 8.1 Oreo update for the Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL running the Android 8.1 Developer Preview 2. Equipped with December's Android security patch, the update also brings a bunch of bug fixes as well as system stability and performance enhancements. From the update notification information shown in the Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL smartphones, the update which weighs nearly 40MB will deliver the production version of Android 8.1.0 (OPM1.171019.011) on the device.
Meanwhile, there are also a few noticeable changes for regular users in the Android Oreo 8.1 update. The device features a dual camera and other similar specifications as the Xiaomi Mi 5X that is available in China. The system will itself check for the new update for Android 8.1 update. The network speed labels will be enabled by default and users must go to Settings Network & Internet Wi-Fi Wi-Fi Preferences Advanced Network rating provider and select None. For testing the leaked firmware on your device, you may need to clear all your phone's data that also includes images or other files saved in the internal storage. You can manually keep on checking for the update as well.
