    I think that is only for the 7.1.1 Nougat version and not if you have the beta Oreo 8.0 version?

    Bought a Nokia 8 on Saturday, after reading Nokia is very fast with their updates, sometimes faster than Google themselves. Came from Nexus 5X. And then the first update is 3 weeks late… Hope this is a one-timer…

    Still not in UK. I never got the October update either. HMD hasn’t been consistent with its updates to me. Usually about a month late and no update for October. Also quite slow with Oreo update. I thought stock android was supposed to get updates quicker. Not as quick as HTC

    • John Jennings

      That’s very strange, Keith. I got the October update immediately on my UK Nokia 8, and am getting the November update as we speak. Did you buy your phone directly, or from a network? I wonder what’s going wrong.

        Got mine SIM free from Carphone Warehouse. Disappointed. I know if I contact support all they’ll say is reset your phone.

        • John Jennings

          Mine was SIM free from CPW too – the plot thickens! There’s no logical answer as to why we would be having different experiences.

            Mines the matt dark blue one. What colour is yours

            • John Jennings

              Ah, I have the silver one.

              • Keith B

                Got my updates. I removed the sim card (Giffgaff). Still nothing. The tried a Three Sim card. Still nothing. Tried once more with no Sim card – success.
