[Update: Rollout resumes with July patch] Xiaomi Mi A1 now receiving Android 8.1 Oreo update, but it might wipe your SMS history

We're big fans of the Android One-powered Xiaomi Mi A1 here at AP. Its combination of a handsome design, top-of-the-line software, great performance, and solid battery life makes it one of the best budget phones out there (even if it's not officially sold in the US). The phone received Android 8.0 Oreo just before 2018 kicked off, but it's taken until now for 8.1 Oreo to roll out. Unfortunately, it comes with two pretty major bugs.

TCL is starting an invitation-only Oreo beta for the KEYone

The BlackBerry KEYone launched a year ago with Android Nougat, and today it still runs Android Nougat. Oh sure, there have been regular security patches over the months, but the lack of an OS update after more than six months of Oreo availability is embarrassing.

Android 8.0 Oreo rolls out to the LG G6 on T-Mobile

T-Mobile has finally gotten around to pushing Oreo to the LG G6. This will be its first major update since launching, but it's still only landing on 8.0 rather than 8.1.

AT&T Galaxy S7 active now receiving Android 8.0 Oreo update

Most people know of the Galaxy S7 and S7 edge, but there's a third, often-forgotten brother: the AT&T-exclusive Galaxy S7 active. One of the risks you assume when purchasing such a niche phone, though, is that updates may be delayed. Luckily, S7 active owners have only had to wait around two weeks longer than those with standard AT&T S7 and S7 edge phones have.

[Update: It's happening!] Verizon Galaxy S7 and S7 edge receiving Android 8.0 Oreo update (for real this time)

Over a month ago, Verizon toyed with Galaxy S7 and S7 edge owners' hearts by saying that the Android 8.0 Oreo update was rolling out, when in reality it had simply posted the wrong changelog. However, Verizon has again updated its support pages for the S7 and S7 edge, presumably for real this time.
