Android Oreo bug disables mobile data on Nexus and Pixel devices

Nexus 5X and 6P Receive “Automatic Wi-Fi Connection” Through Unnoficial Method

A new icon for Google lens visual search feature is speculated to launch with the Pixel 2, including the small updates to the screenshot functionality and Bluetooth audio for automotive. Google is doggedly working on a fix, which is good news. The Android 8.0 will be arriving preinstalled on the forthcoming smartphones and it will be available as the first or second major update for the existing smartphones. But yes Google will still be sending you the monthly security patch. After Google on August 21st finally named the Android 8.0 version as Android Oreo, following the pattern as usual has come up with the new version number - Android 8.1 Oreo, that was spotted by the folks at 9to5Google in version 7.11 of the Google beta app, which is just rolling out to enrollees.

When the updates for Google devices are ready, you'll find the factory images here and full OTA images here. Now we can only wait until Google comes with a solution.

Nonetheless, the XDA Developers; the community of custom ROMs have rolled out Android 8.0 Oreo custom AOSP ROM's for few select smartphone like Xiaomi Red Mi Note 3 (Snapdragon variants), Mi 3, Mi 4, Mi 5, Mi Max, Samsung Galaxy S6, Asus ZenFone 5, Motorola Nexus 6, LG Nexus 5, OnePlus One, Sony Xperia SP, Xperia TX, Xperia T and Xperia V.

Various sources' reports also stated that the new bug is clearly affecting the Gmail app. "Gmail keeps running in the background, trying to sync, but failing", the Android Police reported.

The Android 8.0 Oreo will be pre-installed in some of the upcoming flagship smartphones. Talking about more options, there are many more features like gesture settings, battery light customization etc.

But, if previous released pattern is taken has any indication, Samsung is expected to add custom features to Android Oreo, like the way it did with the Android Nougat and most probably complete the testing in a month or two.

The Oreo update is not such a tasty treat for some Pixel users.
