Yesterday the Google I / O 2018 kicked off, one of the most important congresses of the year, in which Google shows us the news at the software level in all its services that we will see throughout the year. And yes, indeed, yesterday we could already seeAnd we are in love.
But if we go down to reality again, the truth is that we already want Android P, when many of us do not even have the latest stable version of the operating system. And, the reality is that Android Oreo is still little present in Android phones compared to previous versions of Android. Now, the latest Android distribution data has just come out, and the truth is that Android Oreo is increasingly present in Android phones, do you want to see how things are?
As you know, if we talk about Android, we speak indisputably of fragmentation, since, to our regret, ** not even a fifth of the Android phones that are currently on the market have the latest version of Android. **
Well because there are many old mobile phones still alive or because many terminals do not receive a single update and they die with the Android version they came out with, The truth is that things are like this in Android, and it does not seem that they will change in the short term.
As you can see in the table,and it goes from having a 4.6% presence to having a modest 5.7%, while other versions like Android JellyBean, KitKat or Lollipop are down a few tenths. Some data that, despite this progress, are a bit disastrous.
However, we may be hopeful that this will end someday thanks to Project Treble, which greatly facilitates the update process. And, if the manufacturers really want to put an end to this problem, they have no excuse for not doing so. And, of not wanting, maybe it should be Google that forced them.
