Google has resolved installation issues with Android 8.1 Developer Preview

02 Novembre 2017

As you might already know, the new Pixel 2 smartphones include a little system-on-chip (SoC) - independent of the main SD835 chipset - that's claimed to speed up image processing five times while using a tenth of the power of the main CPU.

Google said Pixel 2 owners would have the option to enable the Pixel Visual Core once the Android 8.1 Developer Preview arrived; however, that landed last week without the promised support. A number of Google Pixel and even Pixel 2 users complained that the installation of the beta update wasn't completing as needed and their phones were reverting back to Android 8.0.

Google released the Android 8.1 Developer Preview a few days back, but users started having issues with the preview installation. If your app uses the camera APIs and you have a Pixel 2 device, you'll be able try an early version of Pixel Visual Core starting in Developer Preview 2, planned for November 2017.

The Android Oreo 8.1 Developer Preview is now available for the Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL devices, as well as for Pixel, Pixel XL, Pixel C, Nexus 5X, Nexus 6P - but only the Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL handsets have the relevant hardware.

We're now into November, so exactly when DP2 will roll out isn't announced yet, but by then we may have more Pixel 2 devices in hands by then.
