In mid-December, we told you that the boost that Android Oreo needed to reach more terminals would still take a few months to arrive. The latest version of the green robot software has come with significant developments with respect to its predecessors. However, it seems that manufacturers are not yet quite clear when it comes to incorporating it into their tablets and smartphones, and the number of terminals that incorporate it standard, is still reduced.

A few hours ago, the adoption data of this platform called Global Android distribution numbers for the final stretch of 2017 was known, and although it continues to gain ground very little by little, the truth is that the results may be different from the objectives that its developers based in Mountain View intend to achieve. We will tell you more about these figures and see who are still the winning and losing interfaces in terms of market share.

Very slow growth

From November to December 2017, the Android Oreo market share has increased by only 0.2%, from 0.5 to 0.7% as collected from GSMArena.

As we will see below, this number is much lower than the Android ecosystem platforms that are used most today. In addition, it seems that the latest security measures added in recent times, ave is not had the expected positive impact.

Android Oreo still weak against Marshmallow and Nougat

As we said a few lines above, there are winners and losers in this race to obtain greater implantation. The most beneficial has been Nougat, which now borders on 27%, which means that roughly, it is in some 600 million devices. However, the leader is still her predecessor, Marshmallow, who remains at 28.6%. The oldest has already been in an almost testimonial role, reaching approximately 5.5% of Gingerbread, Ice Cream, and Jelly Bean.

The long-term goal, difficult to meet?

It seems that Mountain View would have imposed a kind of psychological barrier to overcome in the coming months. This level to which they would have proposed to arrive before announcing the latest adoption data of Android Oreo would be 10%, that is, about 170 million terminals. However, the numbers, which reflect a slower-than-expected transition, could play against.
