HMD Global has now formally started pushing Android 8.0 Oreo official update to its Nokia 6 (2018) and Nokia 7 smartphones in China. Despite the fact that we have seen Beta builds pop up for various devices such as the Nokia 6, Nokia 5 and also final build for the Nokia 8, it is good to see that HMD Global is finally trickling the major upgrade down to other smartphones. The new Nokia 6 (2018) was just announced few weeks back and yet it now has received its first ever major OS upgrade — Android 8.0 Oreo.
The Android 8.0 Oreo final update is now only being pushed to Chinese Nokia 7 and Nokia 6 (2018) devices or devices that reside in the China region. We hope to see more regions being covered quite soon. Further, this is not a beta build which means, the OS would not be susceptible to any bugs and would also run the latest security patch that is available.
While announcing the new update, HMD Global has also hinted that final Android 8.0 Oreo build for the original Nokia 6 is also in the works and would be made available for all consumers quite soon. As for now, you can install the latest Android 8.0 Oreo Beta build on your original Nokia 6.
One of the main reasons of success for HMD Global and Nokia Android smartphones has been the continuous software updates. From the moment we got our Nokia devices, whether it be Nokia 3 or Nokia 6, each device has received an update almost each month. This goes to show how much HMD Global is committed to providing an unparalleled experience to its customers.
