A week after there were reports that the Nokia 6 (2018) has started getting the Oreo update, the company has officially announced the roll out. In a Weibo post today, HMD confirmed that the update has been launched for both second gen Nokia 6 as well as the Nokia 7.
Here's what the post said (translated):
# New Nokia6 is worth anyway # Android O attack, eat Oreo together! Today, the new Nokia 6 and Nokia 7 officially launched Android Oreo 8.0 system updates. Speed upgrade, more concise, more fluid, a new generation of background management mechanism, lower power consumption and more power saving; gesture operation, turn off the screen prompts, monthly security updates ~ Nokia 6 updates will also be coming soon, please be patient !
By the end of this month..worldwide release is expected
Well sure we will depend on the manufacturer for locked devices. No big surprise there... BUT the easier it is to produce an update, the more likely they are to actually do it. IF they can take the next OS version and/or OS-security patches...
Please release the Nokia 7 worldwide.. It is the best offering from HMD right now.. SD630 with 4GB ram paired with a 16MP zeiss lens.. Now with OREO!! If not then I'll just have to import it then
