HMD Global recently released the Android 8.0 Oreo update for the new iteration of the Nokia 6 that was launched earlier this month. It said at that time that it’s going to release the Oreo update for the original Nokia 6 in the near future as well. That day is today. The original Nokia 6 is now receiving its Android 8.0 Oreo update.
The original Nokia 6 handset bearing model number TA-1000 is now receiving the Android 8.0 Oreo update in China. HMD Global, the Finland-based company that makes these Nokia-branded handsets, has made good on its promise to have the update out for this device soon.
The stable version of Android 8.0 Oreo for the original Nokia 6 follows the release of the Oreo update for the Nokia 6 (2018) and the Nokia 7 earlier this month. Both handsets are yet to be released out of China and HMD Global hasn’t confirmed when these handsets will make their way to other markets.
Android 8.0 Oreo brings several major features to the handset as it is a major platform update after all. Users will get features like picture-in-picture mode, integrated Instant Apps, user interface optimizations, and more. There may be some China-specific customizations as well.
Those who own an original Nokia 6 in China can now keep an eye out for the update notification as it will be arriving soon if it hasn’t already.
