Nokia 8 receiving October Android Security update now

After Nokia 6, Nokia 8 has also started receiving the October Android Security update. But there is one big difference here. As per the tips sent to us by our readers, Nokia 8 is not receiving the Android 7.1.2 Nougat update with the October Android Security update.

We don’t have a screenshot to share with you as Nokia 8 is not yet available in India. But lack of Android 7.1.2 Nougat update for Nokia 8 is bit surprising. As the Android update path to Oreo should go via Android 7.1.2 Nougat. Nokia 8 may be the first Nokia Android Phone to get Android Oreo update, as it was teased by HMD with Android Oreo Beta installed.

HMD has been quite consistent in terms of releasing Monthly Security updates and OS updates for Nokia smartphones already available in the market. HMD has also made it clear that all Nokia Android Phones will receive minimum two years of OS update support.

Thanks to Ricky, Martin & others for the tips. Cheers!!
