    Sorry, no such option for me. I have Nokia 8, bought on a market. After registration I got the info “Welcome to the forefront of Android – we’ll let you know as soon as the next testing period kicks off, so keep a close eye on your inbox and stay tuned”. Is ok? As far I remember Nokia always get latest software to simfree phones. I don’t have any Oreo upgrade.

      There is no Beta available anymore for Nokia 8 as the final Oreo update has already been out for Nokia 8 across all markets.

        Ok, that is clear for me. But why I don’t have Oreo upgrade available? As far I know Poland was one of the very first to get upgrade, but not me. Is there a way to force the upgrade ? Or I have to wait? How long ?
