Nokia 5 now receiving Oreo Beta update with multitasking bug fix

26 December 2017 2

The Nokia 5, released by HMD earlier this year, was sporting Android 7.1.1 Nougat at launch. The company seemed pretty committed to software support for the device when it rolled out the September security patch even before Google. And lucky for buyers, that isn't changing. More recently, the company started the Oreo beta program for the Nokia 5, just two week ago, and today there's a new major update available for devices on that beta.

The new update weighs in at around 1.7 GB, and brings the build number up to V5.160. It brings a host of improvements for features included with the original beta, including Picture-in-Picture mode, notification dots and the December security patch. As for this update in particular, not much has changed visually, although the update log does mention that the boot up is now faster.

Additionally, we have reports saying that the update fixes a multitasking bug that was present in the first beta build.

HMD is expected to roll out a few more beta releases uptil next month, by which time the company is said to have scheduled the public Oreo release for the Nokia 5.

The Nokia 5 isn't still available. To be notified when it becomse available click here.
