TechRader exclusively reports that an HMD spokesperson told them that Nokia 3, 5 and 6 will receive the Android 8 or Android O update once the update is available. The spokesperson couldn’t say the precise date of the update availability, but knowing that HMD uses “Pure” Android, it should happen soon after Google sends the final version out, and that’s scheduled to happen in Q3 this year.
It’s good to note that manufacturers sometimes need few months to optimize a new version of Android for their devices, but it is also good to know that the now Nougat-running 3, 5 and 6 will get the newest Android eventually. All we need now is the devices themselves, that should finally launch this month.
