HMD Global is starting to roll out the Oreo beta for the Nokia 5. If you’re a part of the Nokia phone beta labs program, then you should soon start receiving the beta firmware.
The company stated in late November that the Nokia 5 and even the Nokia 6 would be getting the Oreo beta very soon. And now it has begun, for the Nokia 5 at the moment. HMD Global’s Chief Product Office recently tweeted the same.
#AndroidOreo for #Nokia5 has landed on Nokia phones beta labs! Android has never tasted sweeter.
What's more, Android 8.0 Oreo™ beta for #Nokia6 is coming soon! https://t.co/91uhqstnnm pic.twitter.com/0slgeNbfdC

He also stated that the Nokia 6 would soon join the beta labs program. For now, if you own a Nokia 5, then you can register for the program and get the Oreo beta update. A stable update for the device should be available in Q1 2018.
The Nokia 8 already received the Oreo update last month, but now there are other devices that are going to get the update soon. HMD has also confirmed that the Nokia 3 will skip the Android 7.1.2 update and will instead get the Oreo update.
