Further, Sarvikas said Android Oreo is “maturing nicely” on Nokia 8 and the company will “release when perfect”. However, the images do not show any changelog for the same. HMD Global had already confirmed in the past that all its Nokia-branded smartphones including Nokia 8, Nokia 6, Nokia 5 and Nokia 3 will be upgraded to Android Oreo.
Google has already revealed that by the end of this year, hardware makers including Essential, General Mobile, HMD Global Home of Nokia Phones, Huawei, HTC, Kyocera, LG, Motorola, Samsung, Sharp, and Sony are scheduled to launch or upgrade devices to Android 8.0 Oreo.
