All Nokia's Android phones will be getting the Android Oreo update soon

All Nokia's Android phones will be getting the Android Oreo update soon”

Although, there's no sign of the Oreo update for any Nokia smartphone, which the Google Pixel phones have already got.

The Android-based Nokia 6 was first unveiled by HMD Global - who now own the license to brand and distribute Nokia phones - at the Mobile World Congress 2017 in Barcelona earlier this year.

In addition, Vodafone consumers will get 10GB data per month at Rs. 249 per month for 5 months on their Nokia 6. The confirmation has come via the Chief Product Officer of HMD Global on Twitter. Back in July, the Nokia 6 also received the July Android Security update before any other phones in the market.

Either way, here's hoping that the Nokia 3, 5, 6 and 8 all receive Android Oreo in short order. At the launch of Nokia 8, the company confirmed that the device will receive Android O update faster than any other flagship smartphone. Typically it is the Google devices that get the monthly security updates first, but off late HMD Global has been leaving even Google behind. Nokia has now confirmed that all their existing phones will be getting the Android Oreo update. On the flipside, higher end Nokia devices use Qualcomm chips while the low-end Nokia 3 uses a MediaTek processor. That being said, the roll-out for the Android 8.0 Oreo update for Honor 6X could be delayed and happen in early 2018. To recall, the company recently launched the Nokia 8 and it is is expected to cost around Rs 45,000 in India. While some may argue that the two, Nokia and BlackBerry, have a thin device profile to update, their willingness to do so is inspiring and something the rest can emulate. If you are a Nokia 5 user, you can check for the patch by navigating to smartphone Settings About Phone System Updates Check for update.
