Android Oreo Update pushed for Nokia 8, Nokia 6,5,3 & 2 will also get it soon
“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. Working together with our fans under our newly setup up Nokia phones beta labs, we’ve created a pure version of this highly anticipated mobile platform, delivering all the exciting new features with none of the unnecessary clutter paired with great performance and even better battery life. Android 8.0 Oreo is packed with new features that make communicating, creating, gaming and exploring even more fun,” Juho Sarvikas, chief product officer of HMD Global said while making the announcement.
Official roll out of Android Oreo for its flagship phone Nokia 8 . The Android Oreo update is now available as an OTA and much like most major updates, not all Nokia 8 phones will get it simultaneously. The update will be rolled out in a phased manner and “you will receive a notification on your smartphone when it becomes available in your country,” HMD Global announced. The Nokia 6, Nokia 5, Nokia 3 and Nokia 2 which are also in line to get Oreo will start getting the update soon, HMD added.
Since all Nokia phones in 2017 run a near stock version of Android, Oreo on-board the Nokia 8 (and other Nokia phones) will also have no third-party skinning and will be close to what Google offers in its Pixel phones. Also, the update will bring in all the key highlights of Oreo, including, picture-in-picture, Android Instant Apps, faster load times, better RAM and battery management and redesigned set of emojis with more than 60 of them being brand new. Most importantly, the Nokia 8 will still be clutter and bloat-free even post the Oreo update, much like it came out-of-the-box.
