Android 8.1 Oreo is the next Version of Android; Revealed

Another praise worthy feature of the Android Oreo is the Rescue Party, which helps the device to recover from constant bootloops. In a review made by CNET, they said that an Oreo-powered phone boots up 13 seconds faster when compared to Nougat, but other than that there is no considerable difference.

A new device, believed to be the Nokia 9, has been spotted on popular benchmarking site GFXBench.
