Nokia 6 gets Android 8.0 Oreo, thanks to the Beta Labs Program

Nokia 6 is getting Android Oreo

Nokia 6 is getting the Android 8.0 Oreo Beta version and it is a good news for the users, indeed! The device is getting the update due to the Beta Labs Program which also rolled out the same to the Nokia 5 last week. Nokia 6 is a mid-range device and despite this fact, the phone has proudly added itself to the list of those 0.5% active Android devices which have received the update around the world.

HMD Global announced while launching the new generation Nokia devices that they will be pushing regular updates to the phones and it is good to see them living up to it! The Nokia 8 was the first to receive the Beta version of Android 8.0 Oreo and now the Nokia 6 has joined the list, succeeding the addition of Nokia 5.

Nokia might be working on a dual sim QWERTY phone and it might be the revamped Nokia E71!

Juho Sarvikas took to Twitter to announce the good news and mentioned how Nokia 6 is getting the Android 8.0 Oreo Beta via the Nokia Mobile  Beta Labs Program. You just need to visit the official website, enroll your device in the Program and voila! You’re done. 

However, with all this good news on the roll, you need to remember that this build isn’t final and the device will be prone to some bugs due to this update. Nokia has stated that the final and stable build for Nokia 5 and Nokia 6 will be released in early 2018.

The company has also stated that the Nokia 3 will also receive a direct update to Android 8.0 Oreo Beta instead of the 7.1.2 Nougat. Some speculations also suggest that a 2018 Android 8.0 Oreo (out of the box) running version of Nokia 6 is in works and will be released soon. 

We would just hope that the other brands like Samsung are listening and paying attention to how Nokia is working hard on providing the latest OS to each of its phones.
