HMD Global continues ‘doing it right’ today with the Oreo update for their Nokia 6 handset now available to test out through the Nokia Labs Beta program.

The announcement for the Oreo Beta has again come through HMD Global Chief Product Officer, Juho Sarvikas‏ who announced on Twitter:

The announcement comes just a week after the Android Oreo Beta update for the Nokia 5 was made public. As with the Nokia 8, and Nokia 5 Android Oreo Beta, you’ll need to go to Nokia BetaLabs website, sign-in, hand over your device details and a Beta update will be on its way to you soon.

The update is for Android 8.0 and 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.

If you’re a Nokia 6 owner, then head over and grab a tasty treat for your phone now.

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.

Has anyone in Australia received the Oreo update? I registered this morning but haven’t seen anything yet (I’m on Telstra)



Same. Telstra registered for beta, no update forthcoming
