An interesting question, but until the HMD shows that they only focused on Nokia 8.

"Before the end of this year" In an interview with GadgetGaul, Mark Trundle, HMD Global's General Manager for Australia, New Zealand, and Indonesia regions, confirmed that the the Nokia 3, Nokia 5, and Nokia 6 smartphones will be getting their respective Android 8.0 Oreo update "before the end of the year" This article is listed here: http://gadgets.ndtv.com/mobiles/news/nokia-3-5-6-android-8-0-oreo-update-to-roll-out-by-end-of-2017-1756250 (I have no contribution to this website, this is just a news forum for me which i am referring)

And will it come to all handsets? The security updates aren't.

Yes Nokia 3,5,6 & 8 all going to get Android Oreo. Security updates are already coming via OTAs right From first day i got the phones. I have heard many times people claiming Nokia 6 is lacking in security updates that's because some people got Chinese variants flashed with International Software on it by the seller, Which lead them to stop getting OTAs. You need to contact Nokia support if that's the case with you.
In a recent interview with some YouTube channel in Indonesia at Nokia launch event in Indonesia two of the HMD Executives clarified that yes Nokia 3, 5 and 6 and 8 will all get Android O before Christmas. And they also clarified the policy of supporting software updates and security updates for their devices for a period of 2 years (which means if Android P comes in that time frame, hope for that too, actually not hope but a guarantee for that if it lands in 2018)

So if I haven't received any of the security patches, what's the chance I'll get Oreo?

First try by using vpn to see if you get update after changing location. If you still don't get it, contact Nokia support and inform them. There may be the case the person who sold you the device flashed international rom on to the Chinese variant which causes it to stop getting OTAs. For confirmation if this is the case with you, check if the model number written on the box of the phone and one written in the settings in about phone section are same. If they're different then u r the victim of that international rom flash trouble. You can also look at xdadevelopers.com to see its solution as many people have come across this issue

It's a TA-1033 running the international firmware purchased over the counter from a big box retailer. Definitely not the Chinese version. Their local support website (nokia.com.au) has a not working email support form and the chat support app staff told me it was "a Google problem because Google makes android.". I found a support email address and they told me to try another region then never replied when I asked how. Your response here has been more useful than all my interaction with Nokia combined. Oh and I have this issue with two phones so it's not a one off thing.

Then at least give vpn (psiphon or opera vpn) a try and see if that works. What does it do when u do?

Opera VPN set to USA. Key icon on toolbar indicating that the VPN is active. Settings phone - system updates - check for updates - "your phone is up to date".

 Someone else figured out the update problem: https://community.phones.nokia.com/support/discussions/topics/7000010948


I'm looking forward to getting lots of updates now. Nokia even announcd that all their current phones (I assume this means the 3, 5, 6 and 8) will get Oreo and the next version of Android as well.
