Developer preview for Nokia 8

Why is Nokia 8 not considered for developer preview? This looks like cheating. Nokia 8 was flagship phone when introduced and Nokia promised atleast 2 updates for Nokia 8.

    Nothing Has been cheated by Nokia/HMD Oy
    Nokia 8(2017) was released Around December 2017 with Android 7.1.1 Out of Box
    As per 2 years of OS upgrades Android 9 Pie will be last major upgrade for Nokia 8(2017)
    But Since this device is in Android Enterprise Recommended,Nokia 8 has extended by One year for receiving Additional Security Updates in form of Quarterly Updates.

    Remember that when device launches from there it will start the device time stamp but not from the consumer bought the device at particular date

    At december 2017, why nokia announce nokia 8 with android 7.1.1?? it was a cheat because at december 2017 they must announce this device with android 8 !!!

    And nokia promised that 2 years os upgrade(not 2 major os upgrade) and 3 years security upgrade. Now nokia 8 in the first 2 years. So they must give os upgrade. We arent in december 2019 yet!!

    You said it yourself. Nokia 8 was promised 2 updates. It came with Android Nougat then received Android Oreo and later also got Android Pie. So, it already got two updates which were promised. 🙂

    Nokia 8 was launched in August and not December. There's no cheating in this.

    It came with a promise of two major android updates and even if we go by your theory of two years then it is alrwady out of the update lifecycle. Launched in August 2017 so the two years are already complete in August 2019. And it got two years of updates. Android 10 isn't released yet so you can't argue anymore. 🙂
