Nokia already finishing up Android 8.0 Oreo for the Nokia 8, release likely soon

More than a month ago, Nokia announced the Nokia 8, which runs Android 7.1.1 out of the box. Google released Android Oreo soon after that, and seeing as Nokia is one of the more reliable manufacturers pushing out Android updates as of late, it shouldn’t be long before we see that release on Nokia’s new handset.

Now it’s clear, thanks to some new images published on Twitter, that the Android Oreo update for the Nokia 8 is nearing release…
