Soon after the Google revealed that the upcoming version of Android will be called "Android Oreo", Taiwanese smartphone maker HTC has announced that it will bring its new smartphones with this latest Android update.

Having system-wide themes was possible before too via the Substratum theme framework that has been around for over a year, but you were required to root your Android device.

Here is the list of HTC devices, which will receive Android Oreo update by the end of Q4 2017 (December 2017). One of its laudable feature updates is the new Pixel launcher, which non-Pixel phone owners can now get. And now Taiwanese giant HTC has confirmed that its flagship series; the HTC U11, U Ultra, HTC 10 will be getting the Android 8.0 Oreo update.

Fortunately for coach Ernesto Valverde , Barcelona do not have any players suspended for the game against Betis this weekend. Barca took the lead at the Nou Camp in the 36th minute after Gerard Deulofeu's effort was turned in by Alin Tosca.

The first from the list, HTC U11, now runs on Android 7.1 Nougat out-of-the-box with HTC Sense UI atop, whereas HTC U Ultra now operates on Android 7.0 Nougat with HTC Sense UI atop. Android O offers some cool features like a collection of new Emojis, improved status bar, fresh icons, instant apps lets you use the app without actually installing it, PIP (Picture in Picture mode), Google Play protect (It improves the security level on the device) and much more. This means that companies can start customising the Android 8.0 Oreo in accordance with their device's UI styling. The update introduced few system enhancements but does not bring along any noticeable change.

Thanks to the developers, you can download the Android Oreo Pixel Launcher APK right now on your Android phone running the version of Android Marshmallow 6.0 or above.
