The company was supposed to release the stable version of Android Pie for Nokia 8 in November, however due to undisclosed delays, the update will take a bit longer and could be released in late December or early January.

The Android Pie beta update for Nokia 8 is 1.57GB in size. To get it, users will first need to join Nokia Beta Labs to participate in beta software testing, where they will need to enter their smartphone’s IMEI number, network operator name, and location details.

Once you have been accepted into the program, you can download the firmware files and flash them on the device manually or hit the send OTA button on the site. It is recommended that you make a backup of your device before continuing with this process, as there could be data loss during this process.
