HMD Global a few hours ago announced that Android Oreo has been rolling out for the Nokia 8.
“We’re proud to deliver our pure and secure take of Android 8.0 Oreo on the Nokia 8. We always want to give our fans the best possible Android experience. That’s why we’ve taken the time to test, optimize and refine the platform.
– Juho Sarvikas, Chief Product Officer, HMD Global“
The company is making sure that the Nokia 8 is staying up to it’s word, which is to provide an original Android experience for their users’. Which means that there won’t be any pre-installed applications or any customizations/skin done by the company in the ROM. Also all Nokia phones are promised to get a monthly security update.

Sarvikas says that they have worked together with their customers under the newly setup “Nokia Phones beta lab” in order to create an uncluttered Android experience for their users’. If your daily driver is a a Nokia 8 or if you own a Nokia 8 the phone will update automatically (of course provided that you’re connected to the internet).
In-case you’re device hasn’t updated you will get a notification once the updated is available for your particular device or country. Also the company has also said that Android Oreo will be available soon for other Nokia smartphones as well (Like the Nokia 6 and Nokia 2).
