Don't you worry, Huawei Mate 10 will come with Android 8.0 Oreo

Huawei continues to tease information about its flagship and the next thing the Chinese company has decided to talk about is the OS that comes pre-installed on the Mate 10. Just like its predecessor, the Mate 10 will be Huawei's first smartphone to ship with Android 8.0 Oreo on board.

Its bigger brother, the Mate 10 Pro is likely to run the same version of Android, but we're not so sure about the Mate 10 Lite. The smartphone was already introduced in Asia under different names, but Oreo is not something that's listed among the technical specifications.

If you had any doubts that Huawei Mate 10 will come with Android 8.0 Oreo at launch, then you can rest easy since the company has just confirmed the information via a new teaser that says:

Although the Mate 10 will be introduced next week, it's unlikely that it will hit the shelves until early November. Still, pre-orders should open soon after the official announcement goes live.

It's a shame that manufacturers like LG and Samsung are still on Nougat. My flagship G6 is still on 7.0 with the June security patch.. Anyways, I'll be definitely watching the Mate 10 (pro). It looks quite promising.

That awkward moment when my one-year old Axon 7 is on 7.1.1 with the August security patch.

With oreo it will remain forever and maybe 2 software updates in 3 years to fix some of the bugs.
