Sony to release Android 8.0 Oreo update to these Xperia devices

The successor to Android Nougat, Android Oreo was released last week. While it arrived as an OTA update to supported Pixel devices, the handsets from other manufacturers would have to wait for some more time to receive Oreo.

While it’s okay to wait, but one should at least have the assurance that their handset will receive the Oreo update. It is obvious that recently launched premium handsets such as Galaxy S8, Note 8, LG V30 will definitely get Android Oreo, but what about other smartphones from the popular brands?
