HMD Global continues to try to fulfill its promise that Nokia’s smartphone line this year can get OS update to 8.0 version of Oreo. This time, the Finnish company is preparing to release Android OS Oreo for smartphone Nokia 6. Reported by GSM Arena, Nokia 6 is currently entering the process of testing Beta Labs to get OS updates to Android 8.0 Oreo. Users must register to be able to follow the test because Beta Labs cannot be accessed directly by everyone.
This testing process allows HMD Global to resolve bugs before the software is released to all Nokia users 6. Users who register Beta Labs themselves are expected to be ‘technology literate’ and not afraid of future technical problems. HMD Global first announced the Beta Labs program in October 2017. It is a program that provides early access to beta testing of Android 8.0 Oreo.
At that time, the program was announced not only for users of Nokia 8, but also Nokia 3.5, and 6. It is delivered directly by HMD Global Chief Product Officer, Juho Sarvikas, through his Twitter account. To be able to join the beta lab of Nokia mobile phone, free of charge. However, since this test is a beta program, users should not expect a stable experience.
HMD Global will continue to flood the market with Nokia’s latest smartphone range. One of the products prepared is the newest generation Nokia 6 for next year. Some specifications of Nokia 6 (2018) reportedly appear on the website of China’s telecommunications regulatory body Tenaa. Based on mobile data registered in Tenaa, Nokia 6 (2018) has Snapdragon 630 processor.
Other specifications include 4GB RAM, 32GB internal memory and 18: 9 aspect ratio display. This smartphone is believed to have a ‘sleek’ body with a thin bezel on each side. Until now, the HMD Global has not commented on the successor of Nokia 6. But considering the first generation of Nokia 6 announced on January 7, 2017, most likely the successor will be released early next year.
