Last week, HMD Global announced the Nokia 6 has entered Beta Labs, meaning users who sign up for the program will be able to test Oreo on their units before the final roll out. However, it has now come light that Nokia 6 users in some key markets won’t be able to participate in the program.
According to a post on the company’s support forum, the list of such regions include the US, China and Taiwan. Here’s the complete statement:
We also regret to inform you that this service is not available for Nokia 6 in US, China and Taiwan due to some additional requirements for technical adaptations. Nokia 6 in US; China and Taiwan will upgrade directly to Android Oreo when ready. This restriction applies to users in US (all TA’s), China (TA-1000) and Taiwan (TA-1003).
The post also revealed that users in some regions (like Myanmar) and on some specific carriers (like Vodafone Australia) will not be able to sign up for the Beta Labs program.
And finally, for Nokia 6 users in India who are facing issues participating in beta labs, the company said they’ve identified the issue, and working on fixing it.
