Why Oreo Is Not Getting Enough Attention As ExpectedOreo is just another android version going to get released after Nougat. It is a costly deed for Phone manufacturers to change their phone models to adapt to the new Android versions released by Google every now and then. Currently Android versions are used by 1300 brands with 24000 distinct android devices.
The Chipset manufactures, phone manufacturers and mobile connection providers will have to test this android version Oreo in order to release a phone model and other devices which will take months. When they push the new model into the market after all quality tests, Google will release another Android Version. Because of this, previous Android version Nougat is only used by 13% of the Android users. Most people are using Marshmallow, Lollipop and Kitkat.
