Essential Phone Oreo Beta 3 now available for download

Essential Phone Oreo Beta 3 now available for download

Android Oreo now powers 0.7 percent of all Android smartphones. Since that time, it has released a new update every month with the second version being released in December. And now, previous year Nokia 6 is also expected to get these updates soon.

The changelog for beta 3 still lists all the "new" features from the last update.

This isn't a feature-packed update, but it's an important one. The new features that have been included are smart text selection, faster startup and app sign-in.

Alongside updating the Nokia 6 (2018) and Nokia 7, HMD Global is preparing an Android Oreo update for the original Nokia 6. And the company will release notifications when the update arrives.

Interestingly, the Nokia 6 (2018), Nokia 7, and Nokia 6 (2017) all are now running Android Nougat - despite the fact that the latest Nokia 6 model was just earlier this month. However, accurate information about these updates is not available right now.

Essential says that it's "very close" to the full release of Android Oreo for the Essential Phone. Juho Sarvikas, chief product officer of HMD Global, recently disclosed that the Nokia 6's access to the Android Beta Lab was for the Indian user. When can we expect a stable version of Oreo for the PH-1?

To download the beta to your Essential Phone, follow the link below or simply pull the OTA from your Settings menu (Settings System System update) if you're already enrolled in the beta.
