Once enrolled, the handsets will receive regular over-the-air (OTA) updates of all builds in the Android Oreo Developer Preview and when the next version of Android is released, the device will automatically update to the final version.

It will not be wrong to expect that the next Android Distribution number may show some increase in the Oreo percentage as more and more devices continue to get the update.

The Oreo Beta with December 2017 patch for the Mi A1 weighs in at around 1104.1MB.

Nokia had promised to give Android 8.0 Oreo update on the Nokia 3, Nokia 5, and Nokia 6 back in September. They also revealed that the Nokia 3, Nokia 5 and Nokia 6 would be joining the program in the future.

This feature is not even available on Nexus smartphones and thus it feels great to see it on Nokia 8 and now Nokia 5. The device sports a 5.5-inch Full-HD display with 1080x1920 pixel resolution. In terms of cameras, the phone features a 13MP autofocus rear camera with f/2.0 aperture and dual-tone LED Flash.

Coming to hardware, this offering from Nokia is packing a Snapdragon 430 Octa-core processor, coupled with Adreno 505 GPU. A microSD card slot is given for expandable storage up to 128GB.

The only other version of Android to grow this month is Nougat, which went from 20.6 percent usage in November to 23.3 percent usage in December. While Android 8.1 is already out, Android 8.0 Oreo is no more the latest and greatest in Android anymore. In terms of connectivity, the device offers 4G, VoLTE, 3G, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth and Global Positioning System.
