Late last month, it came to light that the Nokia 6 Oreo beta is not available in some key markets, including the US and China. While India is not on that list, users in the country have been facing issues participating in beta labs.
HMD had earlier said they've identified the issue and working on fixing it. And now, CPO Juho Sarvikas has said the company will be pushing a couple of improvements this week (that will likely fix the problem), before making available the Oreo beta build through Beta Labs.
Here's what the executive exactly said:
This is why I shouldn't give hard dates. We have a couple of improvements that we still want to bring in to the Beta Labs release for Nokia 6 in India since we likely will do just one round before releasing the official Oreo. Think 1st wk of the year, almost ship ready maturity.— Juho Sarvikas (@sarvikas) December 31, 2017
So this is good news for Nokia 6 users in India who want to get the Oreo experience on their units before the update begins rolling out publicly.
I am from Bangladesh and I'm using oreo beta in my nokia 6.
You see people? They leave the manufacturers who don't provide updates alone but attack manufacturers who provide beta version of updates.
"This is what you get for being a fanboy"? What? You get quick updates to mid-rangers and low-end devices and a very extensive software support, in addition to solid devices designed by the Nokia veterans in Finland? Yeah, sounds awful...
