Nokia is a company not dissimilar to BlackBerry. Both companies found themselves pushed to the edge of financial collapse, with their handsets becoming decreasingly popular. But both companies created valuable partnerships that have allowed them to rebuild by creating brand-licensed Android smartphones. Nokia and its partner, HMD Global, have created several Android smartphones for the Chinese market, the most recent being the Nokia 6 (2018).
Beginning today, Nokia and HMD have announced that they’re pushing Android 8.0 Oreo to both the Nokia 6 (2018) and the Nokia 7. Android Oreo is a significant update that has yet to make its way to many smartphones on the market. With the update, Nokia 6 (2018) and 7 owners can expect improved performance, better background app management, and increased battery life.
Nokia has also stated that Oreo will come to the Nokia 6 (2017) soon, but provided no release date.
