Stable Android 8.1 Oreo Update is Now Rolling Out to the Nokia 6

HMD Global is now seeding the Android 8.1 Oreo update to the Nokia 6 smartphone in India and several other countries. In India, the Nokia 6 with model number TA-1021 is receiving an OTA update weighing around 934MB in size. This update includes the new features introduced by Google with the Android 8.1 Oreo back in December. The new features are revamped power menu, slightly tweaked settings menu, and it includes the March 2018 security patch features. As of now, we can confirm that the update is rolling out in India and Europe, but not sure about other countries. However, do make a note that HMD will start rolling out the update in every country very soon.


Also, do make a note that the update size differs with a region. For example, the update weighs 875.1MB in Europe, while in India, it’s a slightly bigger update. However, the features included in the update are the same. To successfully receive the OTA update, you should be on the latest February 2018 security update which HMD rolled out last month.

With this rollout, the Nokia 6 becomes the first sub Rs 15,000 smartphone in India to run the latest Android 8.1 Oreo update. Not even the Android One backed Xiaomi Mi A1 received the update yet, but HMD confirmed that all the existing Nokia devices (Nokia 6, Nokia 5, Nokia 3 and Nokia 8) would be part of the Android One program. This announcement was made at the MWC 2018 event last month.


If you’re a Nokia 6 user in India and waiting for the update, head over to Settings app and check for the update manually. If the update doesn’t appear, clear the data of Google Services Framework and check for the update again.

In other news, HMD Global has scheduled a launch event on April 4 in India, where it’s expected to launch the Nokia 6 (2018) and showcase other Nokia devices unveiled at the MWC event. The Nokia 6 (2018) will run Android 8.1 Oreo with Project Treble support out of the box. The Nokia 6 is now available at Rs 13,499 after a recent price cut.
