I've searched the forum and the internet but I'm not completely sure about this.
Is Nokia 8 part of the android One program? Because the 8 lacks of project Treble but I've read some articles stating nokia 8 will be part of the program (e.g. http://nokiamob.net/2018/02/26/nokia-3-5-6-and-8-will-join-android-one-program/)
So just to be sure, is the 8 part of the program?
It doesn't have the certification but the Nokia 8 was said to be getting 2 years of OS updates and 3 years of security updates and the phone has always carried the "pure & secure" mantra. Lets be honest all it is missing is a sticker on the back of it.
I remember this, but I've been trying to find where it was written (or said) and haven't had any success.
I think the trouble is it is that long ago now :-(
Fair play to HMD though, they have been good to their word so far.
The only reference I can find to the updates duration is the interview Juho Sarvikas gave to NDTV at MWC earlier this year: https://gadgets.ndtv.com/mobiles/features/nokia-s-android-phones-about-design-and-software-updates-not-just-specifications-hmd-global-chief-pr-1664532
So only two years from launch, not three like Android One.
I've also listened to the launch livestream from London and there's no mention of the number of years the 8 will get updates for: https://youtu.be/C8IM5xKHns0
The first link is from February 2017, long before the Nokia 8 was even launched so i don't think we can read anything in to that.
Doh! I got mixed up. I just watched the India launch event - much better than the London one. No mention of the years of updates in that one either.
