Nokia 8 Starts Receiving Android 8.0 Oreo Update


Nokia 8, the flagship Nokia-branded Android smartphone from the house of HMD Global, has started receiving its Android 8.0 Oreo update. The news was announced by Juho Sarvikas, Chief Product Officer at HMD Global, in a tweet on Friday. In India, the final Android 8.0 Oreo build rollout begins from Friday night. To recall, the smartphone had got a beta build of Android 8.0 Oreo last month, a build that users could install via an update over the air after signing up to be a beta tester.

We’re proud to deliver our pure and secure take of Android 8.0 Oreo on the Nokia 8. We always want to give our fans the best possible Android experience. That’s why we’ve taken the time to test, optimize and refine the platform. – Juho Sarvikas, Chief Product Officer, HMD Global

All other Nokia Android smartphones from HMD Global will also receive their Android 8.0 Oreo updates in the near future, namely, the Nokia 2, Nokia 3, Nokia 5, and Nokia 6. In fact, they should all also get their Android P update, as promised by HMD Global last month.

If you have a Nokia 8, your device will be updated automatically. You will receive a notification on your smartphone when it becomes available in your country.
