Nokia 6 Gets Android 8.0 Oreo Beta Update
Nokia has released an array of smartphones from 2 to 8 this year. Now, they are rolling out Android 8.0 Oreo in them. Last week, we saw Nokia 5 getting the Android 8.0 Oreo Beta update. HMD claimed that the Nokia 5 would also be receiving the update.
Now, HMD Global has rolled out the Android 8.0 Oreo beta update to one of the best mid-range smartphones- the Nokia 6. Nokia 6 users can sign up for the ‘Nokia phones beta labs’ and get the beta build of Oreo before the final and stable version of the update comes.
To sign up, users can go to the Nokia phones beta labs and use their Google account. After registering with the IMEI number and other details, the Nokia 6 users will receive the Android 8.0 Oreo update. The notification will take around 12 hours for registration to come.
The Nokia 6 Android 8.0 Oreo update will be an over-the-air (OTA). After receiving the OTA update notification, users are advised to back up their devices and proceed with the package installation. Users can also demote back to Android 7.0 Nougat if they do not like the Android 8.0 Oreo beta update.
With the new Oreo update, users will have features like Notification Dots, Picture Picture, AutoFill, Faster boot times, and security scans. HMD Global states, “Just one week after the Nokia 5 Android Oreo beta labs program, we are delighted to offer the same opportunity to Nokia 6 owners. With the Android Oreo beta on the Nokia 6, you can take a first look at amazing new features that improve usability and multi-tasking while boosting battery life,”
HMD Global gave Android Oreo to the top of their line-up, the Nokia 8 in October, followed by the Nokia 5 last week and the Nokia 6. So, we can expect an Android 8.0 Oreo beta update on the Nokia 3, which will likely be announced by the end of this year.
