Essential Phone now receiving Android 8.1 Oreo update

Essential PH-1

So instead of an update to 8.0 Oreo, the Essential PH-1 would get an update to 8.1 Oreo.

The update brings the regular Oreo features of Android, as well as some Essential-specific features. 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.

Essential has been testing the Android Oreo 8.1 update with its beta testers since January, and it's today rolling out the update to all Essential Phone owners. The announcement was made on Twitter a short while ago.

Documents claimed that the man tried to join a private Super Bowl party at Slash's house on February 4 by saying he was a friend. He insisted he had been given permission to attend the bash, but the rocker had no idea who he was.

Android Oreo has seen minimal expansion since its debut past year, and the newer Android 8.1 has made an even smaller dent in the market.

Artem has updated his Essential Phone, which formerly wouldn't even work if he opted to restore apps and settings, and he's overjoyed that he finally has a functioning phone. Have you received the update? Essential is adding the March security update, dynamic calendar and clock icons, and an apparent fix for the slow scrolling jitter. Let us know what you think.
