Lenovo Tab4 series won't receive Android 8.1 Oreo until November
Lenovo's most recent affordable tablets, the Tab4 series have been confirmed to receive Android 8.1 Oreo updates, and we don't know whether to be surprised or not. They've been initially launched with Android 7.1 Nougat installed, but they should end the year with Android 8.1 Oreo on board.

Three Lenovo Tab4 tablets will be getting Android 8.1 Oreo by the end of the year, as the Chinese company confirmed it's already working on the updates: Lenovo Tab4 8, Lenovo Tab4 8 Plus, and Lenovo Tab4 10. If you didn't notice yet, there's one tablet missing from the list, the Tab4 10 Plus.

Anyway, if you're the proud owner of a Lenovo Tab4 series, other than the Tab4 10 Plus, you'll have to wait several months for Android 8.1 Oreo to arrive. Lenovo claims all updates will be rolled out starting November 2018.

Although we don't have a confirmation yet, it's likely that Android Oreo will be the last major OS update for the entire Tab4 series, but Lenovo can surprise us again if it wants to.

So they aren't going to update the highest spec and most expensive one of the lot? The Tab 7 Essential is also missing from the list. Hopefully they do add both of them to the list and give the Tab 7 the Go edition of Android because it struggles with Android 7 on 1GB of ram.

Lenovo is just lazy in updating their devices. Even after having stock Android they still didn’t updated their K8 Note to Oreo.
