Nokia 6, Nokia 5 next in line to get Android 8.0 Oreo

HMD Global has just announced that it is rolling out Android 8.0 Oreo consumer version to all the Nokia 8 users across the globe. The update comes with all the new Oreo features, enhancing the overall experience. But HMD Global’s work doesn’t stop here. Juho Sarvikas, the Chief Product Officer of HMD Global earlier this year announced that all the Nokia smartphones launched this year will be receiving the same Oreo treatment. This brings us to the question, when will other Nokia devices get the update.

Sarvikas has not yet given any other detail except for the confirmation that Nokia 6, Nokia 5 and Nokia 3 will get Android Oreo. But it looks like after Nokia 8, the two smartphones that are in line to get the new OS version are the Nokia 6 and Nokia 5.

This piece of information comes directly from Sarvikas in the form of a reply to a Twitter user. When asked about Nokia 6 entering the Nokia Mobile beta labs for Oreo testing, Sarvikas replied “Yes, Nokia 6 and Nokia 5 next. Just reviewed today, we will open Beta Labs for those models soon.”

It is worth adding here that no specific time frame is given when the handsets will enter the Android Oreo testing phase. It may be next month or next year maybe.

Nonetheless, you can expect the same set of features coming to Nokia 6 and the Nokia 5 as well. This includes the Picture-in-Picture mode, Notification Dots, updates Android security patch, Auto-fill passwords and more.

Both Nokia 6 and Nokia 5 are currently running Android 7.1.1 Nougat operating system. Also, unlike other OEMs you won’t have to wait for long to get Android Oreo once the smartphones are in testing phases. Since the devices run near stock Android, it is a relatively easy affair for HMD Global to push out Android 8.0 without much customizations.
