If you’re a Lenovo K8 user, you know that it is a budget phone. Even K8 Plus and K8 Note don’t turn out to be heavy on your pockets. But what if we were to tell you that an Android 8.0 Oreo update is coming to all these “budget-devices”? You’ll say that it is a hoax but it is not! Lenovo has officially confirmed the news and it is definitely a good news for the K8 users.
But like all good things come at a price, there is a big catch in this one too! Lenovo will bring out the update, that’s for sure. But the updates won’t come any sooner than June 2018. K8 Plus and K8 Note will get it further in July 2018!
However, as far as the trend goes, Google rolls out the new updates in August every year, so it won’t be unusual if your Android 8.0 Oreo gets a successor in the form of Android 9.0. Even if Android 9.0 doesn’t come out by then, the Android 8.0 would anyway be ten months old.
The price that Lenovo is asking for this unusual gift of the update is – a user’s patience. But one should feel elated anyway since no other devices in the K8’s price range are getting the Android 8.0 Oreo.
Nobody can guess the reason behind this delay of getting an update which is already running in Google-supported devices since August 2017.
We’ll just advice you to find the silver lining in this cloud and wait till the notification pops on your Lenovo K8, K8 Plus, and K8 Note device!
