Andy Rubin's Essential Phone launch confirmed shipping starts in few weeks Essential official website
And yes, Essential Phone owners appear to be taking the news of the delay surprisingly well, agreeing that it's better to wait and receive a silky smooth update... eventually.
Essentialstarted testingAndroid 8.0 for its PH-1 smartphone back in November of previous year. Essential phones were supposed to get Android Oreo a year ago, but that date came and went without Oreo coming to Essential. After three beta releases, the company is not quite satisfied that the update is ready for general release. At the same time, there's a certain level of irony that the 'Father of Android', Andy Rubin, can't get Android 8.0 Oreo to run stably on the Essential Phone. We do not know if these issues were specific to the PH-1 itself or not. "So we've made the decision to focus our energy on Oreo 8.10 instead of releasing 8.0, which will push the public release of Oreo back a couple weeks", the firm announced via a tweet.
With Android 8.0, the issues were just too much for this team to manage and get out an updated operating system quickly.

Little more is known about the reasoning behind the direct jump to Oreo 8.1, other than "stability issues" in 8.0.
Essential is aiming to get the Oreo 8.1 beta ready for late next week, so somewhere from February 6 onwards, we'll keep an eye out for when the beta firmware becomes available. Therefore, it's going to direct all its efforts to move the Essential Phone directly from Nougat to Android 8.1. However, apart from the fact that you need to have the newest Android version installed, the recipients of the message also need to have the same software version for this action to be successful. We now don't have a release date for it, but we'll let you know when it begins getting pushed out.

Shopian killings: Army files counter FIR
National Conference leader Ali Muhammad Sagar said the Army men involved in the killing of the two boys should be arrested. He said the police should have filed a "generic FIR" in the case instead of "prematurely" naming a Major as an accused.
