As one would expect, joining Nokia phones beta labs is completely free, although it being a beta program, don’t expect a completely stable experience. The final Oreo build is expected to hit all Nokia phones by the end of the year.

Moving on to other Nokia-related news, the Nokia 6 Android 7.1.2 update has now started hitting units in India. Weighing in at around 642MB, it’s rolling out for both TA-1021 and TA-1025 variants.

Aside from the new OS version, the update also brings along October security patch as well as a couple of other changes, including improved system stability and user-interface enhancements.
