The final rather latest version of public Oreo Beta test (which was started back in October) for Nokia 8 has finally started rolling out to unlocked models. According to Mr. Juho Sarvikas the delay could be a week or so as some carriers are still reviewing the update. Moreover, he also stated that the public betas for these devices would begin soon.

Remember:

1- The update delivers the November Security Patch level alongside Android 8.0

2- The download clocks in at 1.5GB and the users can download it over a WIFI-connection only.  

Maybe some of you would might be thinking if Nokia is supporting Project Treble. So that subsequent major updates could be finished faster and development of the Custom ROM’s for the devices would be much easier. Whereas the public beta lacked support for Treble. According to a spokesperson @Nokia ‘the final build would include it’. But anyone hasn’t verified this claim yet. Will give you more updates on this as soon as we find out something.

What is ‘Project Treble’:

The Android 8.0 release includes Project Treble, a major re-architect of the Android OS framework designed to make it easier, faster, and less costly for manufacturers to update devices to a new version of Android. Treble is for all new devices launching with Android 8.0 and beyond (the new architecture is already running on the Developer Preview for Pixel phones).

How it Works:

Project Treble separates the vendor implementation (device-specific, lower-level software written by silicon manufacturers) from the Android OS framework via a new vendor interface.

In Android 7.x and earlier, no formal vendor interface exists so device makers must update large portions of the Android code to move a device to a newer version of Android.
