The rollout of Oreo to the Nokia range of phones continues, this time with the Beta arriving for the mid-range Nokia 5 and it will be coming to the Nokia 6 too.

The announcement was made by HMD Global Chief Product Officer Juho Sarvikas‏ on Twitter who said:

The update is for Android 8.0 (no 8.1 for you…yet) includes all the Oreo goodies you could expect including Picture-in-Picture, Notification Dots, Auto-fill passwords, faster bootup and the latest December Security update. To get into the Beta program you simply need to head over to the Nokia BetaLabs, and sign-in then hand over your device details and a then a Beta update will be on its way to you soon.

There’s no word on how long the Beta will last, but the Nokia 8 beta was about 4 weeks before it rolled out in full.

Dan is a die-hard Android fan. Some might even call him a lunatic. He's been an Android user since Android was a thing, and if there's a phone that's run Android, chances are he owns it (his Nexus collection is second-to-none) or has used it.

Dan's dedication to Ausdroid is without question, and he has represented us at some of the biggest international events in our industry including Google I/O, Mobile World Congress, CES and IFA.
