Latest Android distribution figures show 45% more Android phones running on Nougat21
It is quite a battle between Marshmallow (Android 6.0) and Lollipop (Android 5.0, 5.1) for the title of most installed version of Android. The older Lollipop was found on 32% of Android handsets and tablets, while Marshmallow was running on 31.2% of the devices. The two should flip flop in the next two to three months. Next up was KitKat (Android 4.4) with 18.8%, and JellyBean (Android 4.1.x, 4.2.x, 4.3, 4.4) was found on 9.1% of Android devices..
For those of you nostalgic mobile fans, Ice Cream Sandwich (Android 4.0.3-4.0.4) was on .8% of Android flavored phones and tablets, and Gingerbread (Android 2.3.3.-2.3.7) still managed to hold onto a 1% share. Amazingly, Gingerbread had a 1 percentage point increase during the month. Not bad for an Android build that was released in December 2010.
See ya again with the latest data next month!
