Off all the phones released last year by HMD Global, only the Nokia 2 has not been updated to Android Oreo. It will still get updated but to Android 8.1 instead. The Nokia 5 and Nokia 6 already began getting the Android 8.1 Oreo update a few months ago but only in select regions.

If you own the Nokia 6 (China version) and you are still on Android 8.0 Oreo, you may want to check for an update as HMD Global has begun rolling out Android 8.1 to the device.
