Thanks to our friend @hikari_calyx, who provided Internal OTA Update zip package to Android Pie for Nokia 8, we can test it before Nokia release it. The link contains two zips
1) December patch for Oreo for Nokia 8
2) Update to Pie for Nokia 8

Link:
https://mega.nz/#F!W50gzawY!nC8Yb9yE6n08gGafFi700A

Preconditions:
1) All must be Stock, no root, magisk, xposed, no mods etc.

Steps you have to do is:
1) Download NB1-488L-0-00WW-B01-488K-0-00WW-B01-update.zip - this is December Security Patch
2) Update manually (2 ways)
a)
- Copy the file on internal memory root folder
- Dial
Code:
*#*#874#*#*
and there will be possibility of update (this way you may use this guide https://github.com/topjohnwu/Magisk/...a-installation to keep Magisk)

b)
- Connect your phone to PC
- Go to stock recovery (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RmewL1i50c0)
- Choose Apply Update from ADB,
- Type
Code:
adb sideload path_to_zip/NB1-488L-0-00WW-B01-488K-0-00WW-B01-update.zip
where path_to_zip is a path to the location of the file
- Wait and reboot phone, you should have December Security Patch

3) Repeat whole steps froim point 2) for the NB1-5110-0-00WW-B03-488L-0-00WW-B01-update.zip
4) Since @hikari_calyx provided us next internal update, repeat steps for NB1-5110-0-00WW-B05-5110-0-00WW-B03-update.zip and NB1-5110-0-00WW-B07-5110-0-00WW-B05-update.zip.

5) If you want to root your phone, here you may find stock and patched with twrp boot.imgs provided by @THMSP

Like I wrote at the beginning, it is internal update, so I would strongly recommend to unlock bootloader in case something goes wrong. Additionally it is not known at the moment whether it can be possible to update to official version when it comes, so most likely downgrade will be necessary.

As always, you do all on your own risk and I won't be responsible for any damage you do to your phone.

PS: Here is the proof:

Flash stock or restore stock by magisk, and than give it a try. If it won't work, than OST, downgrade and upgrade again till November, and than zip provided by @hikari_calyx. And than use images provided by @THMSP to root.

There is a chance that you lose possibility for later OTA updates. I would not try to update without unlocking bootloader

Known issue on NB1-5110:
The lock screen can't be reconfigured - it will crash when you try to change.

I just tried to install on a Mexico TA-1012 and not working, returns an error "package is for source build 00WW_4_88K but expected 00WW_4_84G, installation aborted"
Did you know what is the problem?

There are two files, please flash the smaller one first via any of the method mentioned, and then the larger.

Seems the colleague is on SW older than 4.88B (which would be the update from May), therefore he cannot use ADB sideload directly.
