The latest data provided by Google shows that Oreo makes a small breakthrough in the smartphone market with a rise of close to 1% of the fleet of smartphones, barely after one month. Last month, Android 8.0 peaked on 0.2% of the mobile fleet. From now on it is present on 0.3% of the active smartphone.
It should be expected that Oreo is on more and more device, as "premium" devices are about to be revealed by their respective manufacturers. For the end of the year but also for the first quarter of 2018 with the CES 2018 in sight.
It is also noticed that Android 7.0 also, according to updated data provided by Google, makes a clear progression to reach 17.6% of the active smartphone park, while Android 7.1 is present on barely 3% of devices.
Since the last update of the data on the various versions of Android released, Google has indicated that Marshmallow totaled 30.9% of the fleet of smartphones that have connected to the Google Play Store, indicating that this version still dominates the majority of Android devices. Compared to last month, Marshmallow is increasing, totaling 32% of the market as you can see on the chart above.
Compared to Apple iOS, Apple's release of a major new version is used on nearly 78% of iOS devices. The latest version of Android struggles to get a significant position on users devices. However things are likely to evolve in the weeks and months to come.
