HMD has been very vocal about intending to keep its new Nokia phones updated in a timely manner. With promises that even the lower-tier Nokia 3 will be getting a solid, 2-year, prompt update schedule, and that its phones will get Oreo by the end of 2017, all eyes are on the company, waiting for it to deliver.

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.



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. In the meantime, here's what Android 8 Oreo brings to the Nokia phones:

  • Picture-in-Picture mode
