Nokia 8 expected to receive the Android 8.0 Oreo update in late October

HMD has already confirmed that Android 8.0 Oreo for Nokia 8 is currently being tested and the update should be released soon. How soon is that? Well, if everything goes according to plan, Nokia 8 owners won't have to wait more than a month to upgrade to Oreo.
During a recent press conference in Taiwan with the occasion the Nokia 8's launch in the country, HMD's officials present at the event confirmed the smartphone will receive the Android 8.0 Oreo as early as late October.
The Nokia 8 will arrive in many countries in the first week of October, but in some territories, HMD's flagship is already available for purchase. It's quite generous from HMD's part to provide customers who bought the Nokia 8 with an update so early. That will definitely help with the sales of the phone and the trust consumers have in the Nokia brand.
We reported a few days ago that HMD confirmed Nokia 3, 5 and 6 will be receiving Android 8.0 Oreo updates by the end of the year. Let's see if the Finnish company can keep its promise.

Ah! Fragmentation, eh? If there's one thing that bothers me the most about Android, it is THIS! We get updates in a matter of MONTHS (IF ever, "BIG IF") while The iSheep get it within HOURS! Get my drift? If not then, truth be told, you're a biased hypocrite, I'm afraid. Android is the better mobile OS overall, no question about it, but there are some things about iOS which it just can't compete with, let alone beat: 1. Fluidness. 2. Updates. 3. The iMessage. Oh well, G'Day!

The Pixel is pretty fluid, right?

Unfortunately but true. To take care of this though, Google has to exercise better control (remove all the hundreds of makers who keep releasing phones by the second but never update them) and control (will affect Open Source nature of Android) so in terms of updates, Apple has no competition! Either choose exorbitant prices and restricted environment (accept its pros and cons) OR get a Android of your choice (accepting it pros and cons in an Open source world). Choose your side wisely and let's be ok with it :)

iOS is a fantastic OS. No question. But if the truth be told, it needs the fast, constant updates to fix functionality that’s been broken from the previous update. If the truth be told, then you should take your own advice. Remember this?: “8. It's just a bloody phone, get over it! Don't like it, don't buy it, savvy?” You said that here:https://www.phonearena.com/rev
If not then, truth be told, wouldn’t that make you (as you say). “a biased hypocrite”?

You act like Apple never slows down their phones with updates, you should only be upgrading at least once so planned obsolescence doesn't make your phone a total waste of money. It's only a matter of time before your phone cooks your femur due to software problems.

Please, get realistic. There are more than 10 thousand models of Android powered smartphones currently on sale while, on the other hand, there are not up to 10 models of iOS powered ones. There'd always be more fragmentation on Android compared to iOS, and reasonably so. It's not that much of a disadvantage, especially when you factor all the things it has over iOS. The only fair comparison of Android and iOS is between Pixels and IPhones.
