The latest version of Android which becomes the successor to Android 7.0 and 7.1 Nougat was released by Google in the month of August last year and it was named as Android Oreo with the number given to this version as 8.0. Now, we have known that the naming of the latest versions of Android has been traditionally done by Google on the basis of names of popular sweets and Oreo is definitely one of the most popular cookies in the world. Also, the naming has been done in an alphabetical order and we know that the name of next version will start with alphabet ‘P’.
Now, as far as Android 8.0 Oreo is concerned, Google released a maintenance update to Android Oreo last year which was named as Android 8.1 Oreo and it came with several improvements and features that were not present in Android 8.0 Oreo. Some of the features released with Android 8.1 Oreo are the inclusion of Pixel 2 launcher by default, Power-Reboot menu, Dim Navbar keys and switching of Black and White themes according to wallpapers.
All of these features will come to Android 8.1 Oreo-based ROMs and one of the most popular Custom ROM is set to be released publicly very soon. This is LineageOS and the latest version of LineageOS, LineageOS 15.1 is going to be released very soon and this information is outed by looking at the latest commits found on the LineageOS Github repo. As far as the LineageOS 15.1 public release is concerned, it is known that most of the smartphones that had LineageOS 14.1 builds will have LineageOS 15.1 build unless and until there are no maintainers for the particular device. Thus, stay tuned to know more about the release of LineageOS 15.1 as we will continue to post updates about LineageOS 15.1 as soon as it is released.
