Juho Sarvikas, who is the Chief Product Officer at HMD Global for Nokia smartphones confirmed that they have started beta testing Android Oreo for the Nokia 5. Surprisingly, Nokia 6 didn’t get it first, but he did confirm that Nokia 6 will be next. If you own a Nokia 5 and interesting in beta testing Android Oreo, then head over to this Nokia.
In case you do not know, Android Oreo brings lots of new features. The most notable ones are Picture in Picture mode, Notification Channels, Adaptive icons, smart auto fills and several other under the hood changes. The best thing about Android Oreo is Project Treble, but its not supported by many devices. However, phones releasing next year with Android Oreo out of the box will have it.
