Any Canadians with a BlackBerry Keyone? Check your phone, there should be an Oreo update waiting for you. The update started its rollout already - it was initially scheduled for the 13th, but there was a minor delay. Anyway, Keyones from other countries should join in before long.

The update brings the Android version to 8.0. The updated for phones on Rogers also includes Wi-Fi calling support.
