Google releases Android 8.0 images for supported Pixel and Nexus devices


Google has just finished announcing Android Oreo as the latest version of their operating system, and while they’re busy pushing code to the Android Open Source Project, they’ve updated their Android O developer page with OPR6 (the final build) of Oreo for Pixel and Nexus devices.

There doesn’t appear to be OTA’s rolling out as yet, but it’s early hours yet, so if you have a Nexus 5X, Nexus 6P, Nexus Player, Pixel, Pixel XL or Pixel C, you can download the right System image and start downloading. Google has specifically called out Telstra for a special build of Oreo for the Pixel and Pixel XL so if you’re on Telstra ensure you download and flash that image.

The images can be downloaded from the Android O developer site right now

Dan is a die-hard Android fan. Some might even call him a lunatic. He's been an Android user since Android was a thing, and if there's a phone that's run Android, chances are he owns it (his Nexus collection is second-to-none) or has used it.

Dan's dedication to Ausdroid is without question, and he has represented us at some of the biggest international events in our industry including Google I/O, Mobile World Congress, CES and IFA.
