Quick Android updates are highly valued by power users but mostly ignored by smartphone companies. If you want quick updates, you’re usually limited to buying a Pixel. However, Nokia might be in the running for second place.
HMD Global Chief Product Officer Juho Sarvikas posted on Twitter that the Oreo update for the Nokia 8 is in the works. He also posted two photos of the Nokia 8 getting the OTA for the Oreo beta, showing that it’s getting close.
Hopefully the update is released soon, beating other manufacturers to the punch. Stock Android doesn’t always mean quick updates (we’re looking at you Motorola), but Nokia seems to be working hard to push the latest updates to its devices.
