HMD Global officially announced the start of Android 8.0 Oreo Beta rollout for Nokia 6 in India. This update is a part of the Nokia Beta Labs program, which was started by the company just a few months back. So if you are a Nokia 6 owner and wish to taste Android 8.0 Oreo before the other users get a chance to do so, you can sign up for the Beta Labs program through the company’s official website.

With this tweet, we can also interpret that the final build of Android 8.0 Oreo for the Nokia 6 smartphone is just around the corner and will be launching shortly. Currently, only two Nokia branded smartphones run on Google’s Android 8.0 Oreo operating system, the Nokia 8 and the Nokia 6 (2018). Out of these Nokia 6 (2018) was recently launched in China and within two days of its launch, it received the Android Oreo update.
Since the announcement has been made, various beta testers on Twitter have started pointing out various bugs and issues in the beta operating system. These bugs include icon alignment, battery draining, call lag, Picture in Picture Mode not working and many more. Due to this being one of the first public beta builds, we expected it to have various bugs, which the company will be phasing out before the final update is released.
