Essential PH-1 Receives Android 8.1 Oreo Stable Update

Essential PH-1 Receives Android 8.1 Oreo Stable Update”

At the end of January, Essential announced that it would be skipping a full release of Android 8.0 Oreo, instead going straight to 8.1.

Android 8.1 Oreo is rolling out in a stable build to Essential Phones right now. Its reason for doing so had to do with stability issues present in Android 8.0 that would be addressed in Android 8.1 Oreo. After testing Android Oreo 8.0 for a couple of weeks, the company decided not to release the update and instead skip to Oreo 8.1.

If you've got an Essential Phone, what are you looking forward to the most with Android 8.1?

The Essential Phone has seen quite a few updates since its debut, but major updates have been minimal, to say the least.

Screenshots provided by some users who have received the OTA shows the update is 1015.1 MB in size. Have you received the update?

Do you own an Essential PH-1? Essential is adding the March security update, dynamic calendar and clock icons, and an apparent fix for the slow scrolling jitter.
