Android Oreo Beta for Nokia 6 is now available for everyone! HMD Global just made a lot of Nokia fans super happy and excited as they open up beta sign ups for Android 8.0 Oreo system update for the Nokia 6 through Nokia Beta Labs. This means, HMD Global will be rolling out the official Oreo update very soon and to finish that up, they need all the help and feedback from existing Nokia 6 users.
Nokia Beta Labs previously offered Android 8.0 Oreo Beta for the Nokia 5, and now with today’s update, Nokia 6 users can get a taste of Oreo as well. We signed up with our Nokia 6 and the process went super smooth. All you need to have is the IMEI number from your Nokia 6 and the network it is on. Both of these things can be found from your phone settings area.
A couple of things to keep in mind before installing this. One, you need to have the latest December 2017 security patch installed on the Nokia 6. Second, make sure you have a backup of everything on your phone.
We will do a detailed guide on how to sign up and install Oreo on your Nokia 6. For a tutorial on how to download and install Android Oreo Beta, read the following:
