Nokia and HMD are keeping up their promise of releasing fast updates to the collection of Android devices they announced this year. After the rather timely monthly security fixes, now’s the time to get a more substantial update in the form of Android 8.0 Oreo but you’ll need to have a Nokia 8 to get your first taste.
Sure enough, the update has now started rolling out for the Nokia 8 flagship. This has been confirmed in a Twitter post by HMD Global’s Chief Product Officer Juho Sarvikas. According to the tweet, the company took user feedback under heavy consideration, everything has been “polished” and the update is rolling out today.

Android 8.0 Oreo comes with array of features including Background limits, Picture-in-Picture (PIP), Snoozing individual notification, Wide-gamut color for apps, Adaptive icons, Companion device pairing, Keyboard navigation, AAudio API for Pro Audio and more.
All other Nokia Android smartphones from HMD Global will also receive their Android 8.0 Oreo updates in the near future. There is no exact date for the other phones in HMD’s portfolio, but they should be getting the patch soon enough. After all, 2017 is almost over.
