The Essential Phone integrates a version of Android with an interface similar to that of Google, and for good reason, the founder of the company is Andy Rubin, one of the creators of Android. The update to Android 8.0 Oreo should be done smoothly. Registration for the beta program is done on the brand’s website, in the section dedicated to developers.
It remains to be seen how long this program will last, and therefore when the final update will arrive for all Essential Phone.
