Android 8 Oreo coming to all HMD Global Android smartphones

Last updated:

HMD Global, the licensees of the Nokia brand, is promising to release the Android 8.0, Oreo, update to all its Android smartphones in due course.

In a tweet, Juho Sarvikas, HMD Global Chief Product Officer, makes the promise without giving an exact timeline.

Nokia has won plaudits across the board for pairing their well-crafted and designed smartphones with a rarity these days: pure Android. As such, it is able to quickly roll out updates since it does not have to spend eons trying to figure out if those updates conflict with any alterations it may have made to already existing software on the devices.

Since it launched its first Nokia-branded smartphones at the start of the year, HMD Global has been prompt in releasing Android security patch updates every month, something that well-established Android device makers struggle with.
