When HMD Global came back with Nokia device running on Android, they promised that they will provide a stock Android experience with faster updates for three years. Seems like they are keeping their words. A few months back only, Nokia started beta testing Android 8.0 Oreo for Nokia 8 which became official sometime back. Now they are back with Android 8.1 beta for Nokia 8. Juho Sarvikas, Chief Product Officer of HMD Global has announced on Twitter that the beta is now available for users.
Be our guest as we serve #AndroidOreo 8.1 beta for #Nokia8 . Updating your device today will enable a host of new features. And most importantly – the hamburger emoji fix with cheese now on top of the patty! Get it here https://t.co/91uhqsbLYM#nokiamobilebetalabs pic.twitter.com/aA4LmSce0E

To update to Android 8.1, Nokia 8 users need to validate their phone in Nokia Beta Lab. Once validation is done by the IMEI number, within an hour, the user will receive the beta build. There are few minor changes in the update with the correct representation of cheeseburger emoji.
