Rest of the OEMs

The other OEMs including the Lenovo, Blackberry, Meizu, Yu, Oppo, leEco, Vivo and Gionee are still struggling to get most of their devices updated to Android 7.0 Nougat. Some of them like Oppo are still fancying their chances with the obsolete Android Marshmallow update.

BlackBerry KEYone is the only upcoming flagship that is speculated to receive the Android Oreo update sometime in 2018. The lack of timely updates for the rest of the OEM handsets could be disastrous, especially given the intense competition for Android smartphones these days across fast-emerging markets like India, and the rest of Asia.
