HMD Global's Nokia 8, the premium offering in the company's portfolio, is finally being announced in different markets. While announcing the Nokia 8 in Taiwan, a company manager reportedly revealed that the smartphone may receive Android 8.0 Oreo update by end of October.

At this moment, there are no specific dates or release schedule for the Nokia 8's Oreo update. Nokiamob was the first to pick up the news.

The Nokia 8 was launched in India earlier this week, and has been priced competitively at Rs. 36,999, which pits it against the OnePlus 5 smartphone.

For specifications, the dual-SIM Nokia 8 runs Android 7.1.1 Nougat and features a 5.3-inch QHD (1440x2560 pixels) IPS display with 2.5D curved Corning Gorilla Glass 5. It is IP54 rated, which makes it splash proof, and is powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 SoC coupled with 4GB of RAM. The dual rear camera setup on the Nokia 8 includes two 13-megaixel sensors. On the front, there's another 13-megapixel sensor with PDAF. All three cameras come with Carl Zeiss optics.
