Lenovo K8 Note Starts Receiving Android Oreo Update

Lenovo K8 Note is next in the list of smartphones getting Android Oreo update in India. Lenovo smartphones have started seeding the public release of Android Oreo to both these models.

More details about the update:

The Android Oreo update brings new features like the Settings redesign, new notification panel, and much more.  In addition, Lenovo users will also get 60 new emojis and Android Instant apps, which limit background app usage.

Lenovo K8 Note was launched in August last year, and it came with Android 7.1.1 Nougat. Now, the smartphone is being updated to Android Oreo, which is in the form of an over-the-air (OTA) update. However, if you haven’t received the update notification and are curious, then you can manually check for the update by heading to Settings -> About Phone -> Check System Update. If the update is available, then you will see an option to download it from there. The update is around 1GB in size. Users must ensure that their smartphone is sufficiently charged and that update is installed under a strong Wi-Fi connection.

For those who are totally unaware, Android Oreo update brings several new features. Some of them are faster boot time, notification panel, notification channel feature, notification badges etc. Also, Google Now and settings are completely redesigned.

“The upgrade itself uses a good deal of power, and it continues to use power over the following hours as all of your apps and systems update. This is perfectly normal and can lead to temporarily shortened battery life and higher temperatures,” Forum manager Matt wrote.

Android Oreo is the eighth major version of Android Operating system.  It was first released as an alpha quality developer preview in March 2017. It was released to the public on August 21, 2017. As of 16 April 2018, 4.6% of Android devices run Oreo, with 4.1% on 8.0 and 0.5% on 8.1.
