Android 8.0 Beta Launched For Nokia 5: Coming Soon For Nokia 6

Recently I read an article explaining why current Nokia smartphones will not support Project Treble. Although the news was disappointing, seeing the speed with which Nokia is releasing Android updates for its current smartphone lineup, it feels that it might not matter that much. Nokia 8 received the Android Oreo Beta update back in October and today the company has just announced Android Oreo Beta program for its Nokia 5 device.

  • Juho Sarvikas who is the Chief Product Officer at HMD Global, took to Twitter to inform the public about the new release. He wrote that the Android Oreo Beta update for Nokia 5 has just been released on the Nokia phones beta labs platform and interested users can enroll in the beta program to get the update. Not only that, he also informed the public that the Android Oreo Beta update for Nokia 6 is in works and will be released to the public very soon.
