The Nokia 8, serving as HMD Global’s and Nokia’s flagship smartphone for 2017, received an update to Android 8.0 Oreo back in November following a brief public beta program in October. At the time, it was confirmed that other Nokia Android smartphones would join the beta program soon enough, and sure enough, the Nokia 6 is now part of the mix.
Juho Sarvikas, HMD Global’s Chief Product Officer, took to Twitter today to confirm the Nokia 6 is now part of the Android 8.0 Oreo beta test program. He notes that any would-be testers will be trying out the pre-release software in an effort to make sure that it’s ready for the public launch in the near future, but there’s no word on when that launch will take place.
