What is the likeliness for the S2/S2 Pro be updated to Android 8/Oreo OS?

I ordered the S2 expecting it would come with Android 7 UMI OS, because this was listed on the Umidigi S2 specification page. Now it turns out it will be shipped only with Android 6. If I had known this, then I would have waited until they shipped the S2 with Android 7.

So what are my options? Will there be a ROM released with UMI OS Android 7 for us who ordered the S2 early? If so, when will it be available?

They said the first batch of S2 will keep on Android 6 (there will be some updates, but nothing of update to Android 7).

So the second batch of S2 and the S2 Pro will come with UMI OS Android 7.

I understand that the second batch will come with Android 7. However I just wonder if the ROM with Android 7 UMI OS will be made available for us customers that bought the first batch. I mean available for download, so that we can flash it ourselves.

I don't know if it will change later, but they said "no" for the first batch of S2 to get a Android 7 update.

The reason they are talking is about the second batch of S2 will come with a slightly better Helio P20. (MT6757 the original model vs MT6757V the second batch model).

I don't understand why this because, Umidigi S who have almost the same chip have Android 7 and now they are talking about split the same model just because a chip with a little update.

can i know the first batch refer to which date ?
i just order recently for the $50 discount so am i in the first batch too...

on the side note, whether android 6 or 7 or Os....frankly it does not bother me due to i m lite user or you can put it not so IT savy type.

i feel abit of disappointed from some other user whom don't even use the phone but start to critic on it. It just a mid range budget phone so don't have to be so harsh on it. Unless we pay for the price of Samsung latest model or Iphone 8 with high premium price with less function.

As a matter of fact, most of my friend think i m cheapskate for getting the umidigi s2 and abit of let down by their remark - as while the other buddy of mine, console with a beautiful remark - did they own the phone to know the worth, play with it and then show your view after you try on it.

I ordered the S2 thinking it would have Android 7 with the split screen feature for apps. That's why I'd be happy if an Android 7 ROM comes available for first batch S2 phones.
