It’s true. The Nokia 6 will soon receive the Android 8.0 Oreo Beta update in the coming days and weeks. Just a day ago, we had reported how a new video showing off the design aspects of the Nokia 6 had surfaced ad it promised a stunner. We had also reported how the Nokia 5 and the Nokia 6 both were set to receive that update. Now, that prediction has come true.
The Nokia 6, manufactured by Finnish company HMD Global which holds the rights to the Nokia brand, is definitely one of the bestsellers as far as the company’s mid-range devices are concerned. If you own a Nokia 6 device, you too can now sign up for the ‘Nokia phones beta labs’ feature. This will enable you to receive a beta build of the Android 8.0 Oreo before the stable version of the latest update starts rolling out.
In order to do so, you must follow the following steps. First and foremost, you need to go to the Nokia phones beta labs and then sign up simply by using your Google account. After you have completed the registration process along with your IMEI number and some other details, your Nokia 6 device will start receiving the update. This update will end up making your model an Android 8.0 Oreo-compatible one. The notification is set to hit the smartphone within around 12 hours of registration.
Incidentally, the Nokia 6 Android 8.0 Oreo update is all set to be an OTA update. Once you have finished receiving the OTA update notification, simply back up your device and only then proceed with the installation of the Oreo beta update on your smartphone. In case you are a user, you can always go back to the Android Nougat OS should this beta Oreo version feel a bit buggy for your taste.
Some new features that the Nokia 6 will have after the update finishes are some Notification Dots, a faster boot time, the Picture in Picture mode, AutoFill, as well as Google Play Protect security scans.
