HMD Global has officially announced that the Nokia 5 and Nokia 6 are now getting the Android Oreo software update. Android Oreo beta builds for the Nokia 5 and Nokia 6 were already released in last year.
In a tweet on Tuesday, HMD Global Chief Product Officer Juho Sarvikas announced the availability of Android 8.0 Oreo on the Nokia 5 and Nokia 6. “Sweeter and Smoother. The #Nokia5 and #Nokia6 are officially joining the #AndroidOreo family” said the tweet. He also stated that the rollout would happen in phases. A Twitter user from India has apparently received the update on his Nokia 6 (TA 1021) as an OTA download, and takes the software to version 5.220. The file size is around 1.8GB. The OTA update details core Android Oreo features such as Picture-in-picture, Notification dots, Google Play Protect security scans, Faster boot up time, Autofill, and Google January 1 security patch. The OTA update page also reveals that the file size is around 1822.9MB.
Earlier this month, HMD’s Sarvikas had revealed that the commercial rollout for Android Oreo on the Nokia 6 was on track and expected to arrive in January.
