According to a new Google report for July 2018, market shares of Android Oreo has increased by 12.1 per cent. The last data was collected for May 2018 when Oreo shares stood at 5.7 per cent thereby indicating that the market shares saw almost double a growth in two months.

Android Oreo 8.0 had better penetration than its 8.1 version

The newer version of Android Oreo 8.1 experienced slower adoption by users in comparison to Oreo 8.0. While the former accounted for two per cent of the market shares, Oreo 8.0 saw market shares of 10.1 per cent.

The data was gathered by Google over a period of seven-days on grounds of the number of devices that visit the Google Play Store in the specified time span. The survey concluded on July 23.

The recent Android updates brought by popular companies such as Samsung, Xiaomi, HMD Global, Huawei and Asus, on their smartphones, has reportedly catered to the two-fold growth. In fact, these days smartphone makers are creating phones that operate on Android Oreo.

Android Nougat leads the race

The Google Android Distribution report states that Android Nougat with its 7.0 and 7.1 versions leads the race. While the first version accounted for 21.20 per cent of the market shares, the newer version contributed to 9.60 per cent of the same.

The third android version in line is Android Marshmallow that with 23.5 per cent market shares saw a decline of 2 per cent from May 2018. Also, Android Lollipop (both 5 and 5.1) versions have accounted for 20.4 per cent of market shares. Lollipop 5.1 alone recorded shares of 16.2 per cent is more than Oreo 8.0 and 8.1 separately and collectively.

One of the reasons behind the slow adoption of newer versions of Android is the high price of flagship phones and customers’ intention and inclination toward keeping their old and/or current phones longer, which cannot support the newer versions.
