So, there you have it – Android’s newest version is now called Android Oreo.
The version number in question is 8.0, if you’re wondering. According to Android’s Twitter post, the new version of Android should arrive earlier than you would have expect it, most likely.

According to the Tweet, all Nexus and Pixel devices should receive it very soon, that includes the following devices:
- Google Pixel
- Google Pixel XL
- (Google) Pixel C Tablet
- LG Nexus 5X
- Huawei 6P
- Nexus Player
The roll-out is imminent, but do expect some delays as always as it is a phased roll-out. It means that it will roll out to certain regions first, then others will follow.
In case you can’t wait for the update, you can (later) find the Factory images and OTA files on this official Android website for developers. The files were not on the website at the time of writing this post, but keep checking back to it as it should be live soon.
Also, keep in mind that flashing requires a little bit of knowledge, so if you are not familiar with the process, we strongly advise you against trying it as you could break your device by doing a few things wrong. We recommend you to check out XDA Developers forum to learn more about it.
