As for the public launch of the OS, there's still some more weeks to go.

Today Motorola confirmed which of its smartphones will be updated to Android 8.0 Oreo. Well, Lenovo-owned Moto brand has just announced the list of the Moto devices that will be receiving Android Oreo update in the coming days. Apart from that, Android co-founder Andy Rubin's Essential PH-1 smartphone will also get Android Oreo update. It should be readily available, that is, if you can enable it in AOSP.

On the front end, the notification tray has a cleaner look and feel, including reverting to the long press on an icon for various options within a setting (like wi-fi or bluetooth), which Samsung earlier had included as a slightly cumbersome drop-down under each icon.

Android O brings in some cool new features like the integration of the Picture-in-Picture view, auto fill, instant apps and more. If you have a Motorola, cross your fingers that you own one of its 10 devices getting the software update. All these phones currently run on the Android Nougat OS. It seems like it will be the last update that Motorola will allow to its devices.
