January 2018 Android Distribution Shows Slight Bump For Oreo

Share

Even though companies like OnePlus, Motorola have released Android 8 Oreo update for a few of its smartphones, the rollout happens in phases and hasn't reached every device in the market. On the other hand, the volume of devices running Android 8.0 Oreo is recorded at 0.5 percent.

Even if the research points to a company handily beating on the earnings front, the stock may not always react as expected. Used as a coincident indicator, the CCI reading above +100 would reflect strong price action which may signal an uptrend.

Well, we hope that Android Oreo will be running on at least 1% of devices when the Android distribution numbers for next month are released. Google collected the data on the distribution numbers over a seven-day period ending Monday. Overall, the total share of Android Oreo stands at 0.7 percent compared to 0.5 percent in December. Android Nougat has been showing steady growth for a while now. At the bottom of the pile, Android Gingerbread (0.4%) and Ice Cream Sandwich (0.5%) are still holding on for dear existence, quite literally.

Android Nougat, which is nearly 13 months old now, grew to 26.3 percent, up from 23.3 percent last month. That makes it the second most-used version behind Android Marshmallow (6.0), which slipped to 28.6 percent usage this month.

Tesco wins the battle of the supermarkets as shoppers splurge over Christmas
Shoppers parted with £747 million on 22 December alone, making the Friday before Christmas the busiest shopping day ever recorded. Only 36 per cent of spending was on items on offer this year - the lowest level of promotional activity at Christmas since 2009.

If Android Nougat continues the same trend, we can see it closing onto Android Marshmallow in the next few months. So it's no surprise developers got a hold of the tech behind the feature and brought it over to more devices running Android 8.0 Oreo and up. While the new versions of Android are seeing a steady increase in market share, older Android versions have seen a steady decline. The latest iteration now commands a 0.7 percent share of the Android pie, up from 0.5 percent last month. The dip in Marshmallow's market share indicates people are either updating their phones to Nougat or upgrading to newer phones. To note, the figures are gathered from devices visiting the Google Play app, which only supports Android 2.2 and above.
