Why can you not give us a guide to when it will be ready rather than giving out sketchy answers all the time.

Because development can't be predicted. Road maps get delayed, sometimes stopped, sometimes resumed. Too many variables to tell you a release date. I hope you can understand what i'm saying.... 

Actually development can be predicted, i work in development myself and we always work by milestones otherwise it would be an absolute shambles, so Im sure Blackview do aswell.
We are not asking for an absolute date just a rough estimate of when we can expect a release whether that be 1 week, 1 month, 6 months or 1 year. A estimation is enough.
For example do you expect it to be released before Xmas?

Six months / 1 year could be a rough estimate for the releasing of Oreo.

Well i guess this  the last Blackview phone Ill be buying if you cannot even update the software 1 year after release.
Sad because they seem quality phones but phone updates and support is equally as important as the actual phone. Something that most Chinese manufacturers dont seem to care about, instead they just keep churning out new models without supporting the older models. I guess repeat business is not so important.
Thanks

Wow. You're telling us that probably when Oreo will be released for the p10000pro, Android Q will be already out?  We'll be 2 versions behind? At that point, I guess that it will be the last update.

What about security patches? Will there be something in the meanwhile?

Security patches may come earlier.

'May come earlier'... Well they are already late... You will get more positive reviews = more sales... When you bring out timely updates. Is there no release calendar available for the updates?

official ROM android_7.1.1 can be downloaded here

official ROM(backup) android_8.1 can be downloaded here

a warning! make all experiments with the device at your own risk
carefully read the description of the firmware on the site 4pda
Android 8 has flaws.
My personal opinion - Android 7 is better!

for those who decide to move from 7 to 8
get this flaw after installation:

the exact same drawback will be received by people that they want to go from off 8 to 7

If you bought a smartphone on Android 7, then only it will not have this red signature
If you bought a smartphone with Android 8, then you will not have this inscription on it in the right corner

sorry for english
I use a google translator

the main problem after the transition from 7 to 8 I showed on the screen
if it doesn’t bother you, you can upgrade to your health!
Also in Android 8, battery statistics not displayed

otherwise, it is not much different from android 7
Personally, I do not even see the point of updating ..
A lot of people who bought a smartphone with Android8 rolled back to Android7
After that, almost everyone said that the android7 is more balanced.

Personally, I do not persuade anyone to do anything. My opinion is this, if everything works fine then you do not need to update anything or roll back.
