The exact release date of Android 8.0 Oreo for Nokia phones have not been revealed.

Four Nokia phone models have just been confirmed by HMD Global to get the Android 8.0 Oreo update very soon.

HMD Global chief product officer Juho Sarvikas on Saturday announced via Twitter that Nokia 3, Nokia 5, Nokia 6 and Nokia 8 are all bound for Android 8.0 Oreo update. Sarvikas, however, refused to divulge the exact release date of the update.

Nokia 6 was first released in January, Nokia 3 and Nokia 5 in February and Nokia 8 in August. Nokia 3 had just received Android 7.1.1 Nougat late in August, which means Oreo will likely be rolled out for the device next year. Nokia 8 came out with Android 7.1.1 so it could be the first Nokia device to get Android Oreo.

HMD Global had previously promised to support all of its Nokia smartphones via software updates within two years from their release. Hence, Nokia 3, Nokia 5, Nokia 6 and Nokia 8 are certainly getting Android P if it arrives in 2018.
