The Finnish smartphone giant Nokia, now operating under HMD Global has now officially confirmed that all the Nokia Android phones will receive the Android Oreo 8.0 update once it starts rolling out. This announcement about the Android Oreo update was confirmed through a tweet by HMD Global’s chief product officer, Juho Sarvikas. It said that all the Nokia branded Android smartphones will receive the latest Android Oreo update, even the Nokia 3 budget phone.
The tweet posted by Juho read “All of our smartphones will upgrade to Oreo, Nokia 3 included.” This clears all the doubts that people were having regarding the Nokia 3 receiving the Android Oreo update. While Nokia has started providing regular updates for its smartphones and all the phones are recently launched. it’s good that it has already officially confirmed about its next updates.
Though the tweet didn’t reveal any official date when the phones will start receiving the Oreo update but given by the fact that all the Nokia Android phones run on pure Android it’s likely that they could get the update sooner than some other devices. As for now, the new Android Oreo update is only available for Google Pixel and Nexus devices through the Android Beta Program and once it officially rolls out, you could expect it come to the Nokia phones.
When Nokia officially launched Nokia 3 the budget phone and Nokia 5, and Nokia 6 the mid-ranged phones, earlier this year at the MWC event, there was a wave of enthusiasm among the people about the phones. However, some people still were skeptical about the performance and updates that the phones will have since most other budget phones don’t receive the latest OS updates. This has been now cleared, which makes Nokia stand out among the other budget and mid-range smartphones.
Recently, Nokia also launched its flagship phone named the Nokia 8 with dual Carl Zeiss cameras and the new bothie feature. Before the launch of Nokia 8, it was widely thought that it could come with the latest Android Oreo out of the box, which was then cleared by the manufacturer that it would come with Android Nougat and the users will be able to update it to Oreo instantly.
With the Nokia 3 receiving Android 7.1.1 update recently it will be interesting to see when all the Nokia Android phones start receiving the Android Oreo update.
