When to expect Android Oreo from HMD, will Nokia 2 get it?

HMD Global made a notable commitment when it launched Nokia-branded smartphones earlier this year, saying it would update the phones regularly.

So when can we see updates for the phones?

“We’ll be sending a press release during this week, keep an eye out,” an HMD Global representative told Gearburn when we asked about the availability of Oreo.

It’s worth noting that the update is currently being pushed to the Nokia 8, HMD confirmed on Twitter. But what about the Nokia 2? Will it receive Oreo?

HMD’s newest smartphone combines a low-end Snapdragon 212 chip with a large 4100mAh battery, delivering two-day endurance on paper.

“The Nokia 2 is running Android Nougat and will upgrade to Oreo,” HMD’s representative told us, without specifying a launch date.

The cheap smartphone is currently available for R1699.
