Armenian owners of Nokia 2 won't receive Android 8.1 Oreo update

Nokia 2 has started getting the anticipated stable Android 8.1 Oreo update but Armenia is not among the countries where the update is available, Gadgets 360 reports.

The new update hits the affordable Nokia model a long time after HMD Global kicked off the beta programme for Android Oreo. However, unlike a regular software update that gradually reaches all the eligible models as an over-the-air (OTA) package, the Android Oreo update has been provided as optional. This means users can either update their Nokia 2 handsets to Android Oreo to experience the new changes but at the cost of some performance restrictions, or choose to stick to the existing Android Nougat build to retain the stability.

HMD Global mentions on its upgrade webpage that the Nokia 2 update for users having Android Nougat won't receive the update in countries including Albania, Armenia, Austria, Azerbaijan, Belarus, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Chile, Croatia, Cyprus, Czech Republic, Estonia, Georgia, Greece, Hungary, Indonesia, Ireland (Except Vodafone Ireland), Israel, Kazakhstan, Latvia, Lithuania, Macedonia, Moldova, Mongolia, Montenegro, Peru, Poland, Russia, Serbia, Slovakia, Slovenia, Ukraine, United Kingdom, and Uruguay. Similarly, the update isn't provided yet to operators including Movistar Ecuador, Tigo Guatemala, Greece Cosmot, Telekom Romania, DiGI RO, Orange Romania, and Swisscom.
