The Oreo Beta 3 update is 106.5MB in size and includes the January 2018 Android security patches, with fixes for Spectre and Meltdown in tow. There are also some miscellaneous stability and bugs fixes included, too.
Essential says that it’s “very close” to the full release of Android Oreo for the Essential Phone. There’s still no hard release date, but that’s still exciting news for Essential Phone owners, especially those that have opted not to install these beta releases.
