How to enroll for Nokia 2 Android v8.1 Beta Oreo Program

Nokia has been trying their level best to match up the expectations of the users and this is the reason why they are working hard in pushing OTA updates even for budget-ranged smartphones. Now talking about Nokia 2, it is an entry-level smartphone but the way Nokia is portraying Nokia 2 shows it has something special in it. All the other competitive smartphones like Redmi 5A, Tenor D, Infinix Hot S3 are launched but their smartphone providers never talked about OTA updates (including security patches), whereas Nokia 2 is getting hype as it will soon be getting Android v8.1 Oreo update.
