Adding new files (i.e. a new class) to Android projects in Visual Studio results in files with non UTF8 encoding as it should be.
To repro: Create a new blank Android app, Add a new Class to project and check its encoding (Save As, Save with Encoding button).
For me it says Central European (Windows) - Codepage 1250 instead of Unicode (UTF-8 with signature) - Codepage 65001.
Can you please share with us the environment information from your setup?

What kind of Android project are you using? Can you reproduce the issue with a Blank App? WebView App? maybe a different type or any Android project?
System Info below.
Both Android blank and WebView would produce a non UTF8 file somehow. I guess it should be UTF8-BOM (that's what I'm seeing for i.e. Console app).
I assume that class template file isn't UTF8. Where can I find class file template for Android?
