So, how do you sign up to receive the open beta build of Android 8.0 Oreo for the Nokia 6? Head over to Nokia phones beta labs, and sign up with your Google account. After registering with IMEI number and other details, Nokia 6 users will get an Android 8.0 Oreo software update notification within 12 hours of registration. The update is rolled out over-the-air.
