In few days Android 8.1 is ready to reach the people’s phone.Google has started the new mobile operating system to Nexus and Pixel devices in next two week. The biggest improvement will be for low-cost Android, but also there are plenty of important improvements — particularly if you have a Pixel 2.
If you have Google’s latest handsets like Nexus and Google Pixel phone, 8.1 unlocks the Pixel Core chip so that third-party apps can take advantage of the Pixel 2’s AI-powered photography. Any app that uses the standard Android camera platform can take richer photos and spare you from having to switch apps.
You don’t need one of the newer phones to see the other benefits. Android 8.1 includes a neural network toolkit. Apps which are running the TensorFlow Lite and other AI frameworks on-device, instead of leaning on a distant server. Apps can make better use of autofill forms, and there’s an obligatory round of bug fixes.
When other devices get Android 8.1 is up in the air. Most of the phone which are launched are rolling for 8.0 updates, and they may not delay for 8.1 updates. In some cases, you may stand a better chance of getting 8.1 through a brand new device.
