Google is preparing Android 8.1 Oreo for the release of Pixel 2 and Pixel XL 2


No time for manufacturers to seriously engage in the adaptation of its firmware for Android Oreo, as it became known that Google is now preparing a new revision of the new generation of the “robot”. A new update to the Google App has told about this. In the beta version of 7.11.16, a line was found that directly refers us to Android 8.1.0 with API 27 (Android 8.0.0 API 26). This means that the new “gapps” are created via the Android 8.1.0 SDK.

How can I not remember that in early October, the long-awaited premiere of Pixel 2 and Pixel XL 2 will take place, because last year the developer acted exactly the same way, releasing Android 7.0 for Nexus and pre-installed Android 7.1 with Pixel Launcher for the same name novelties.

Android 8.1
Essential changes do not have to wait – the code found traces of programmable shortcuts (context menu shortcuts), Bisto (headphones with built-in Google Assistant, new icons and stuff. Recall, the presentation of Pixel 2 and Pixel XL 2 should be held on October 5. If you confirm the simultaneous release of Android 8.1, soon after that, the firmware will be added to the Android Beta for Pixel and Nexus.
