Nokia 6 just started receiving the Android 7.1.2 Nougat update along with October Security update. So, while many expect Nokia 3, 5 and 8 to receive the update too; it seems at least Nokia 8 won’t be updating to Android 7.1.2 Nougat.
But if our sources with information about upcoming Nokia Phones updates have to be believed Nokia 8 would directly update to Android Oreo. It will skip Android 7.1.2 Nougat. The update may soon arrive and we will not be surprised if Nokia 8 gets the Oreo update by end of the October to early November.
Android Oreo is a significant update that brings many new features and also a number of improvements in the Android user experience. In case you want to read and watch all new Android Oreo features and changes in action, you can check our article with hands-on demo video here.
