Android Oreo update for Essential Phone coming soon

19 September 2017

Essential has confirmed that its debut smartphone - PH-1 - will get the Android Oreo update soon. The confirmation came in the form of a tweet from the company's official Twitter handle.

As for update time-frame, the tweet says "in the next couple months." This is inline with what Essential's VP of Software Rebecca Zavin recently said - that the update would arrive "in the next month or two." So we expect the roll out to begin before December in any case.
