There were many Android fans that were a bit skeptical when HMD Global made its appearance when it came to the Nokia smartphone brand. They really did a good job overall, when they have released the competitive devices that kept offering updates. Lately, it seems that Nokia receives a lot of updates. Even last month, Nokia 8’s Android Pie update got leaked a bit too early. But now we know that the beta update is official and is available for free, for everyone to download.

The update comes a bit later than the HMD Global promised, but that doesn’t mean that we’re not happy to see it. Nokia 8 is among the few Nokia devices that actually has an unlockable bootloader, which makes it a very nice and good device. The phone Nokia 8 was launched firstly with Android Nougat, with a 5.3-inch display, dual 13MP cameras, 3,090 mAh battery and a Snapdragon 835 SoC, with 4 or 6GB worth of RAM.
Juho Sarvikas, who’s the Chief Product Officer at HMD Global, made an official announcement of Twitter, in which he thanked the users for their patience. Also, he said that, since we also had to wait a bit for the release, they will make an immediate Beta Labs release. He finished with the fact that our feedback is crucial.
So, the beta update is available for all Nokia 8 owners, with the help of Nokia Beta Labs. Users have to visit the website and sign in if they want the update. You’ll have to get your gadget an IMEI number and a network operator. After you’re signed in, the Android Pie beta update will be delivered right on your phone through an OTA update.
