Oreo reaches 0.3% of the Android market in latest distribution chart

The interesting part is that this 0.3 percent gives us a perspective about how lax the rollout for latest updates for Android-powered smartphones is across the market.

At this point, the slow growth in distribution numbers for the latest version of Android is nothing new - the fact is, it's always been like this.

Android Oreo comes with numerous enhancements over the Android Nougat such as faster booting, extended battery life by cutting down on unnecessary activities of apps in the background, more fluid experiences to phones and tablets as well as improvements in security via Google Play Protect that checks suspicious activities and malware in applications.

Which version of Android do you have on your smartphone?

Android 8.0 Oreo, Google's latest mobile operating system, after showing up in October Android distribution chart for the first time has made a small rise in new version chart. There have been a couple Oreo beta tests here and there, and a few phones are launching with the latest version of Android pre-installed, but the results aren't impressive.

The updated Android distribution numbers confirm that Android 7.0 is now present on 17.6 percent of active devices while Android 7.1 is present on 3 percent devices, making the total number as 20.6 percent.

As it turns out, most other phone makers have confirmed that at least the flagship phones will get the newest Android as an update before the end of the year.

According to Google's numbers, Android 6 (Marshmallow) still runs on 30.9% devices, the highest among all Android iterations, followed by the even older Android 5.1 (Lollipop) at 20.8%.
