HMD Global has announced that the Android 8.0 Oreo
update will soon be made available for Nokia 8, Nokia 7 and Nokia 6. As of now, they are releasing the Vanilla Oreo update for the original Nokia 6 and the Nokia 5. Juho Sarvikas, the Chief Product Officer, has just confirmed it on Twitter today. According to him the additional feature-set of the Nokia 5 and Nokia 6 Android Oreo update
would make both of these two mid-range devices “sweeter and smoother”. Sarvikas also said that the entire procedure will be phased in order to “secure quality delivery”. Both of these two phones have already been through a beta program. So the users are expecting it not to take too long to receive the update. https://twitter.com/sarvikas/status/958276692136652800 Screenshots of the OTA update, carrying the build number V5.220, have already been shared by some Nokia 6 (TA 1021) users in India.
