Google's April distribution numbers confirm Android Oreo market share is on the rise
There's a major increase from February 2018 when Android Oreo market share was barely above 1%. According to the latest numbers, Oreo is now on close to 5% of the devices out there, a small number considering Android P is just around the corner.
However, it's not unusual for a new version of Android to do so poorly in terms of market share, even after almost a year of the official announcement. It happened before with Marshmallow and Nougat, so it looks like that's something that consumers will have to get used to.
Last April, Android 7.0 Nougat had 4.5% market share, whereas Android 8.0 Oreo is reportedly on 4.1% of devices. The difference is negligible and probably due to the fact that many handset makers like HTC, Honor, Motorola, and LG have yet to launch their flagships.
You can find the rest of the numbers in the image above, but it's worth noting older Android versions like Lollipop, KitKat and JellyBean have had their percentages decreased, while Nougat's market share increased a bit.
