After rolling out the Android 8.1 Oreo update to the entry-level 10.or D smartphone, the company has now started rolling out Android 8.1 Oreo update to the 10.or E smartphone. For the unaware, 10.or E was the first smartphone launched by 10.or last year in India at a starting price of Rs 7,999. The phone initially arrived with Android Nougat, but now, users in India started noticing the 8.1 Oreo update on their 10.or E. The update weighs 1169.6MB in size and it brings along August 2018 security patches, all other Android Oreo features such as Picture-in-Picture (PiP) mode, Autofill Passwords and more. 10.or also stated that it’s continuously looking to improve the user experience on its smartphones by rolling out new software updates.
10.or E Android 8.1 Oreo Update Features
As mentioned above, 10.or E users in the country already started receiving the Android 8.1 Oreo OTA update notification on their smartphone. The phone is available in two storage variants- 2GB RAM/16GB storage option and 3GB RAM/32GB storage option. Notably, both the variants are receiving the update starting today.
The Android 8.1 Oreo OTA update for 10.or E weighs 1169.6MB. After the update, users will be able to notice August 2018 security patches installed on the device along with various stability improvements. Android 8.1 Oreo update brings notification shade colour change depending on your wallpaper and adaptive app icons support. 10.or has skipped Android 8.0 Oreo update and directly updated the device to Android 8.1 Oreo, which is a good thing.
Do make a note that the update is rolling out in a phased manner, so it might take a while to reach your device.

10.or D Also Received Android 8.1 Oreo Update
Last month, 10.or rolled out Android 8.1 Oreo update to the entry-level 10.or D smartphone. The 10.or D seems to be discontinued in the Indian market because the 10.or D2 was launched very recently. The 10.or D became the cheapest smartphone to run Android Oreo.
