Per a report by NokiaPowerUser, Android Oreo update is available for the new Nokia 6 2018 straight after the initial set up of the device. The only part of the specs sheet of the newly announced 2nd generation Nokia 6 about the web complained was Android Nougat, and not Oreo out of the box. We also received a tip from our reader with a screenshot of Nokia 6 2018 about screen where is clearly stated that the OS installed on the device is Android 8.0 Oreo.
If I had to guess why HMD didn’t flash Oreo on the Nokia 6 2nd generation originally, I would say because the production started before HMD finalized Oreo for Nokia 6 2018. The good thing is that Nokia 6 2018 and Nokia 7 share the same chipset, so we could soon expect the Oreo update to be available for the Nokia 7, too.
Another thing support on Nokia 6 (2018), just like on the original 6 and Nokia 7, is the support for Google Play Store installation. Once the store is installed, it cannot be deleted unless via a factory reset.
