“This instrument replace brings the newest Android Oreo OS, equipment so that you can enhance your productiveness reminiscent of App pair, Twin Messenger, and prime distinction keyboard in addition to UI enhancements on your telephone dialer,” reads Verizon’s replace log. “The most recent Android safety patch may be integrated.”
