How to install Android 8.0 Oreo Pixel Launcher 2.1 without rooting device

How to install Android 8.0 Oreo Pixel Launcher 2.1 without rooting device

However, as of now only the Google Pixel and the Nexus devices have received the Android Oreo 8.0 update.

HTC via Twitter also mentioned the names of the sets which will run on "Android Oreo" update. Okay, using the term "cookies" may not be right when we're talking about a new Android OS but Android 8.0 as the latest dessert is nearly ready to be served. Android provides updates for two years, so it is nearly obvious which devices will get the new firmware. Updates usually mean better and more efficient phones when it comes to system operation, but is this truly the case with Android 8.0 Oreo? Numerous devices that have been announced to support the update are still subject to companies that have their own policy and the update will probably come to each device at different periods of time. Picture-in-Picture mode makes Android more productive in nature. Google will give you a clear warning that "updates you'll receive as a part of this program are pre-release versions, and may contain errors and defects that can affect normal functioning of your device". From custom launchers and icon packs to the much more in-depth and involved theming engines of OEMs like Samsung, OnePlus, and Sony, customization options have traditionally been abundant on Android.

Android Oreo has improved it and has added the ability to access notifications along with the app shortcuts.

The confirmation came in a response to a USA customer's query on Twitter whether "Android Oreo is coming to HTC 10?" The devices also offer additional features like 12 MP rear-facing camera with OIS and PDAF, IP67 rating and USB type C for the faster charging and data transfer speed.

The company said in a news release, however, that it and Google will partner on a "variety of global initiatives designed to create innovative, playful experiences for both OREO and Android fans".

Besides HTC, a number of smartphone manufacturers have revealed when their offerings will get the Oreo update.
