Andy Rubin's PH-1 >Essential Phone

wasn't that big of a hit as he might have hoped for. Now reports have emerged that the phone is having difficulty in getting a stable Android 8.0 Oreo update released, so much so that the device may skip Android 8.0 entirely, in favour of Android 8.1. The irony of an Android version not working on a phone developed by the creator of the Android OS Andy Rubin is quite amusing.

The Essential PH-1 was announced back in May.

According to the official Essential Twitter handle, the company is not satisfied with the results even after three beta versions and has thus decided not to go with Android 8.0 and jump directly to Android 8.1. This will cause the update to be pushed back by a couple of weeks before being made available to the public, said the company.
