HMD has just announced it will soon start a beta program for Android Oreo for Nokia 8
. The so-called Nokia phones beta labs will allow those fans to test software updates before they are released to the masses.
The first smartphone that will receive the Android 8.0 Oreo update is probably the Nokia 8
since HMD is about to start testing it. However, Nokia 3
, 5 and 6 will be updated to Android 8.0 Oreo as well, although that might not happen this year.
Our growing community of beta testers are the first to receive Android 8.0 Oreo. By testing the software ahead of general release, your feedback will help us create the smoothest and purest Nokia phones experience, says HMD.
The only requirement for getting in the beta program is that you own a Nokia 8 smartphone
. Also, don't forget to sign in to receive the Android 8.0 Oreo beta build on your smartphone. HMD doesn't mention if there's a limited number of testers that get accepted in the beta, so we must assume that anyone with a working Nokia 8 will be allowed to download it.
