Nokia 5 and 6 getting Android 8.1 Oreo right now - PhoneArena

Nokia 5 and Nokia 6 start receiving Android 8.1 Oreo updates

Nokia 5 and Nokia 6 start receiving Android 8.1 Oreo updates
The fine folks at HMD have just started the Android 8.1 Oreo roll-out to the Nokia 5 and Nokia 6, two mid-range smartphones that made their debut on the market not even a year ago.

That leaves Nokia 2 the last smartphone launched by the HMD to have yet to receive Android 8.1 Oreo, as the Finnish company confirmed back in December. Each of the two phones – Nokia 5 and Nokia 6 are getting the update in different countries, but the deployment should expand worldwide in the coming days.

If you're rolling with a Nokia 5, the update weighs in at 860MB, whereas the size of the Nokia 6 update is about 930MB. Along with Android 8.1 Oreo, HMD also included the March security patch in the update. As for the rest of the changes, you can find the main highlights below:

  • Battery Saving Navigation Buttons
  • Revamped Power Menu
  • New Settings Menu
  • Bluetooth Battery Percentage

It's yet unclear whether or not these mid-range Nokia smartphones will eventually receive the upcoming Android P update, but if you're owning a Nokia 8 chances are that you'll get it at some point.
