It was confirmed not too long ago that the Nokia 8 will receive its Android 8.0 Oreo update in the near future. That day has finally come. Nokia 8 owners will be delighted to find out that HMD Global has now started rolling out the Android 8.0 Oreo update for their handset. As HMD Global has promised its customers a pure Android experience, this latest iteration of the Android operating system also doesn’t bring any skins or bloatware to the Nokia 8.
HMD Global collaborated with its customers under the Nokia phones beta labs program to listen to their feedback and incorporate it into its latest software update for its flagship device.
“We’re proud to deliver our pure and secure take of Android 8.0 Oreo on the Nokia 8,” said Juho Sarvikas, the chief product officer at HMD Global. He added that the company took its time to test, optimize, and refine the update to ensure that users get the best possible Android experience.
The Nokia 8 Android 8.0 Oreo update is a vanilla version of the operating system. What that means is there are no custom skins slowing down the user experience or apps that just bloat the handset without serving any real purpose.
Nokia 8 owners will soon receive an over-the-air update notification when the firmware goes live in their region. HMD Global has said that it’s going to release Oreo for its other Nokia smartphones soon as well.
