HMD announces it will soon release Android 8.0 Oreo for Nokia 8

Users should note that HMD won't roll out the Oreo update to all of its Android-powered Nokia smartphones. Although we know that Nokia-branded Android smartphones will eventually get the taste of Android Oreo, we didn't have a clear indication of when the update will be rolled out. As per a clue from NokiaPowerUser, the November security patch of Android brings the necessary patches for the awful KRACK Wi-Fi vulnerability that is posing to be a threat to millions of Android smartphones in the market.

HMD Global has revealed that it has successfully completed the public beta test of the Android 8.0 Oreo update for the Nokia 8 smartphone.

To recap on the specifications, the Nokia 6 flaunts a 5.5-inch FHD 1080p display and employs Qualcomm Snapdragon 430 SoC coupled with 3GB RAM and 32GB storage, which can be expanded up to 128GB with the help of a microSD card. HMD's Chief Product Office, Juho Sarvikas confirmed that after a short beta testing, Nokia 8 will soon receive the highly-anticipated Android 8.0 Oreo update. Thank you so much for your passion and great feedback. The official release of the stable version for all Nokia 8 users will follow soon.

Since HMD Global doesn't use a heavy custom UI layer, the Oreo update won't introduce any significant new feature apart from the core Oreo goodies.

It's now 3 months later, a fairly quick turnaround for a company as new as Nokia. So while you may not notice a difference if you are a heavy user, standby time is likely to get a nice boost after the update.
