HMD Global has now added Android 8.0 Oreo beta build for the Nokia 5 on its beta test programme.This means that Nokia 5 owners will be able to get the latest Android 8.0 Oreo update by signing up to Nokia mobile beta.
HMD Global’s Chief Product Offer Juho Sarvikas announced this via Twitter and added that the Android Oreo beta build for Nokia 6 will be coming soon.
Sarvikas had promised last month that Android 8.0 Oreo beta support for Nokia 5 and Nokia 6 would join the company’s beta labs programme following the availability for Nokia 8 in October and official rollout for the handset last month.
There’s no firm time frame, but beta testing for the Nokia 8 started on October 25, ended on November 10 and the finalized update started rolling out on November 24. So the Nokia 5 should have Oreo in about a month.
