The podcast ran just over an hour, and the crew asked many of the questions we've seen crop up regularly here in our forums. However, Thurber did not shed light on the Nougat update for the DTEK smartphones and said it is most unlikely that phones will see a Nougat update.

The Priv was BlackBerry's first Android device and officially launched in 2015 with OS 5.1.1 Lollipop, then was later updated to Android 6.0 Marshmallow. From a developer's point of view, Android Oreo gives a lot of freedom to developers and it also makes things bit easier than before. Thurber mentioned that the DTEK devices were TCL reference designs to test the reality of whether the licensing model made sense. The company has confirmed that it won't be releasing any Android Nougat or Oreo update for its Priv smartphone.

Amid all these updates and security patches for existing BlackBerry devices, rumors are abuzz that the company is looking to launch another new device next month. This of course has not bee confirmed so it could possibly change.

In case, you don't get the update notification, you can head over to Settings About Phone Update, to manually look for the update.

Based on leaked information gathered by Phone Radar, the Android 8.0 Oreo update for the Samsung Galaxy S8 is code-named G955FXXU1BQI1, while the S8+ will have the G950FXXU1BQI1 version. TCL has reiterated that the KEYone is a successful phone, and the supply is falling short in the wake of tremendous demand, notes AndroidCommunity.
