Huawei isn’t exactly known for its stellar software support, typically taking a while before rolling out a major new Android version to even its most popular old phones, and often prematurely leaving behind some good ones. But the rapidly growing top three global mobile device vendor sent encouraging signals on the heels of the Oreo-powered Mate 10 release recently, promising and delivering a swift Mate 9 update, as well as committing to a number of OS renewal efforts for Honor products.
Samsung didn’t rush the Galaxy S9 and S9+ out on the market this month, as some insiders expected at one point, but the next-gen “Infinity Display” flagship phone duo is still likely to launch pretty early in the year compared to the GS8 and S8+. Specifically, renowned leaker and mobile reporter Evan Blass claims the “go-to-market schedule” might be tighter than ever for the chaebol’s main hero devices of 2018, starting with a February 26 announcement.
It’s mid-January 2018, and the August 2017-released Android Oreo build hasn’t been made available officially for a single product in the portfolio of the world’s number one smartphone manufacturer. That’s disappointing, to say the least, but for what it’s worth, Samsung seems to be putting the finishing touches to fully stable and silky smooth Android 8.0 OTA packages for both the Galaxy S8 and Note 8.

Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used). For example, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
