Earlier this week Google released the next version of Android with 8.0 aka Oreo. If you have a Google Pixel phone you can get the update a lot sooner by registering your phone in their ‘Beta’ program. Samsung phones on the other hand it could be a good six-months or more (especially for those who recently took out a loan for the Galaxy Note 8 which will not be getting this update anytime soon). Even the LG G5 (my current phone) and G6 will eventually get this update in the future. Pretty much any phone released in the last year (again except for the Galaxy Note 8). should get an update to Oreo at some point. Besides some new features, there are suppose to be improvements to battery life and device security.
