Today we will talk about the amount of devices that run Android 7.0 Nougat or any other older versions of the operating system. We have to mention that the data is gathered from the official Android website, so it’s as accurate as it can get.
So, if you’ve been wondering how many Android devices (in percentage) are running on the latest Android 7.0 Nougat, you’ve come to the right place. Below we will give you a list of Android operating system and the amount of Android devices that run on them:
- Android 2.2 : 0.1%
- Android 2.3.3 – Android 2.3.7 : 1.3%
- Android 4.0.3 – Android 4.0.4: 1.3%
- Android 4.1.x (Jelly Bean): 4.9%
- Android 4.2.x: 6.8%
- Android 4.3: 2.0%
- Android 4.4: 25.2%
- Android 5.0: 11.3%
- Android 5.1: 22.8%
- Android 6.0: 24.0%
- Android 7.0: 0.3%.
Despite the fact that Android 4.4 and Android 5.1 are quite old, they are still being used by a good amount of devices. However, it seems that more and more mobile devices are now switching to Android 6.0, but it will take at least one more year when we will finally see most of them moving to Android 7.0.
Now we will talk about OpenGL ES, which is also known as Open Graphics Library for Embedded Systems and it is a cross-language, cross-platform application programming interface (API) for rendering 3D and 2D vector graphics. In other words, this API is used to interact with the graphics card in order to achieve hardware-accelerated rendering.
- OpenGL ES version 2.0: 43.1%
- OpenGL ES version 3.0: 42.2%
- OpenGL ES version 3.1: 14.7%.
As you can see, OpenGL ES v2.0 is still at the top of the list, but it is closely followed by OpenGL ES v3.0. We think that it is just a matter of time until OpenGL ES v3.1 will start being used by more and more games, as it comes with more features and improved stability.
