Three Android-powered Nokia smartphones, namely Nokia 6, 5, and 3, that are yet to be released in the market will receive Android O (Android 8.0) update once made available, confirmed HMD Global, who now owns the rights to market the Nokia brand, to Techradar.
Android O is an upgrade version of Goolge’s operating system Android, which the search giant announced at its annual I/O conference in May and is in plans to be rolled out.
“The smartphones will get the Android O update once the new release is available from Google for their OEM partners, the same way HMD Global is committed to the monthly Android security updates,” a spokesperson from HMD Global told Techradar.
Nokia had announced to release the three Android-powered in the market in second quarter of 2017. A recent report by a National Daily suggests that they could be launched on June 13. However, HMD Global is yet to confirm the release dates of the models. It is being said that Nokia will send out media invitations for their launch on/around June 8.
