January 2018 Android Distribution Shows Slight Bump For Oreo

Google sure has been very picky in rolling out the update, even after almost five months since releasing Android 8.0 Oreo to the public.

We closed 2017 looking at Android usage numbers showing that more and more people are jumping over to Android Nougat. It will likely be 2 more quarters in 2018 before we see significant changes in the numbers for Android Oreo. The distribution numbers for Android 7.0 went up from 19.3 percent to 21.1 percent, while Android 7.1 Nougat saw a jump from 4 percent in December to 5.2 percent.

The most popular version is still Marshmallow, although it has lost some of its steam and dipped to 28.8 percent down from 29.7 percent last month. Notably, Android 8.1 Oreo has now made it to the chart and is currently running in 0.2 per cent of active devices, bringing the total to 0.7 per cent. Google collected the data on the distribution numbers over a seven-day period ending Monday.

A further breakdown reveals that Android 8.0 takes a 0.5 percent share and the latest Oreo 8.1 sits at just 0.2 percent. It is also surprising to see that the share for Android Gingerbread at 0.4 percent of the market, considering the fact that it was launched 7 years ago. Even though it is no longer the latest version of Google's operating system, there are new handsets that are still shipping with Android Nougat pre-installed, which may further contribute to the increase in its market share.

Those Android OS that are running on less than 0.1% of devices are not included in this chart.

Android Lollipop has dropped from the second place to third now as it makes up 25.1 per cent (version 5.0 and 5.1 together), down from 26.3 per cent last month. While KitKat saw a 0.6 percent drop for 13.4 percent to 12.8, Jelly Bean saw a marginal drop from 5.9 percent to 5.6 percent. Oreo isn't expected to pick up any pace before spring when major brands like Samsung, Huawei, and LG start releasing new flagships.
