“The smartphones will get the Android O update once the new release is available from Google for their OEM partners, the same way HMD Global is committed to the monthly Android security updates,” the Finnish company said in a statement to TechRadar.
The three Nokia devices will be launching in June, according to HMD Global, with a “worldwide” release that will hopefully included Canada.
We plan to release our upcoming Smartphones worldwide before the end of Q2 2017. (June) Stay tuned for updates.

While the devices are set to be released this month, Android O will not be unveiled until later this year. When it is unveiled, usually smartphone manufacturers take a little while before actually getting the newest version of the Android OS.
Though Google-branded devices like the Nexus and Pixel devices will most likely get the update first, last year the LG V20 shipped only a few weeks later with Android N pre-installed.
The Nokia 3, 5 and 6 and potentially the two other unrevealed Nokia smartphones will mostly take a bit of time before getting the O update, but it’s good to know that all three of these mid-ranged devices will be receiving the update.
