Today, we are officially introducing Android 8.0 Oreo, the latest release of the platform - and it's smarter, faster and more powerful than ever. It comes with new features like picture-in-picture and Autofill to help you navigate tasks seamlessly. Plus, it's got stronger security protections and speed improvements that keep you safe and moving at lightspeed. When you're on your next adventure, Android Oreo is the superhero to have by your side (or in your pocket!).

Coming to a device near you. Eventually. Maybe. But probably not.

Your own comment is a perfect illustration why it is OK to "generalize". You say you have Android O because you use alternative ROM's. You are among the .01% of Android users who use these pieces of software that are unofficial and not supported by Google, manufacturers, and carriers. Therefore, generally, hardly anyone of any significant numbers will see Android O for years to come.

I dabbled in alternative ROMS a few years ago myself. Some worked fine while some required constant tinkering to remain stable and some were just plain bad. Some didn't even allow the use of some my phones' features. I got tired of them and switched to "stock" via the official Google phones.
