If there isn't any chance I think HMD should completely skip the 7.1.2 and jump too 8.0 or 8.1 maybe.
I'm more eager for the promised Android Oreo update though. Hope HMD Global fixes the UI stutters soon cause they ruin the otherwise impeccable feel of the device. Faced any such lags recently, or is it just me?
I have seen people writing on other topics that you should use a VPN if you are not getting updates in your country. Just try to look at other topic who have similar question to yours.
