HMD official confirms Nokia 3, 5 and 6 will receive Android Oreo update by the end of 2017
HMD's General Manager for Australia, New Zealand, and Indonesia, Mark Trundle (at 5:15) confirmed that Nokia 3, Nokia 5 and Nokia 6 will be running Android Oreo by the end of 2017. The company's flagship, Nokia 8 was spotted online with the new version of Android on board, so we can safely assume the smartphone will receive the update very soon.
If HMD keeps its promise, the Nokia 3 could become the cheapest smartphone to run Android 8.0 Oreo, thus making it even more popular among Android fans. At the opposite tier, the Nokia 8 might become the cheapest flagship to run Android 8.0 Oreo when HMD decides to release the update.
Although the update will first be rolled out to unlocked devices, the Finnish company may push carriers to release Oreo as quickly as possible to all compatible Nokia smartphones.
