HMD Global has officially revealed that all of their android smartphones will be upgraded to Android 8.0 Oreo in coming weeks. Mr. Juho Sarvikas, Chief Product Officer of HMD Global, confirmed the same in his latest tweets.

As far as the latest flagship device Nokia 8 is concerned, it was well clear that the device will get Android Oreo update as soon as it comes to customers hands. This was shared with you a month earlier on this blog. Likewise, news of Nokia 6 and Nokia 5 having latest version of the software had already been confirmed by June 2017.

HMD Global – the Finnish Nokia mobile maker has now announced that even its budget device Nokia 3 would get the Android 8.0 Oreo update. Juho emphasized that Nokia 3 will be released with the new version of the software due to the glitches it faced in receiving Android 7.1.1.

Date Of Release For the New Update

Juho Sarvikas mentioned in his Twitter post that he shall not reveal the date of release for the new update. But given the fact that Nokia is purely dependent on Android, the update shall reach its users soon.

Needs not to mention that Android Oreo update has already been rolled out to Nexus and Pixel devices whereas the newly announced Sony Xperia XZ1 and Xperia XZ1 Compact will get the Oreo update by the end of September 2017. Moreover, HTC has also also announced last month that its HTC U11 would get Android Oreo in the fourth quarter of this year.
