Nokia 8 Gets Android 8.1 Oreo Update

Nokia 8 Gets Android 8.1 Oreo Update

The Nokia 6 (2018) isn't a new device. Recently, the company trademarked Nokia 8 Sirocco Edition moniker, so there are chances of this device to be launched as well. And in the last week of January, HMD Global rolled out a beta version of the Android 8.1 Oreo to the Nokia 8.

The Nokia 8 becomes the only non-Google phone installed with Android 8.1 Oreo at this point in time, which shows that HMD is indeed living up to its promise of matching Google when it comes to software updates. However, Counterpoint has, stating that around 4.4 million Nokia smartphones were sold in Q4 of past year, putting it at the 11th spot overall. Android 8.0 Oreo doesn't look that great as well as it accounts for only 0.8 per cent of all active devices.

Nokia 8 Oreo Update V4.84AImportant: Above 50% battery power is recommended while updating to the new OTA firmware update.

Do make a note that the update is now rolling out all the Nokia 8 users and when we checked for the update on our Nokia 8 for the first time, it didn't appear.

As you can see in the screenshots below the February security update for Nokia 3 is around 89.3 MB in size. "There's so much more to like about the Nokia 8 than just the mere nostalgia factor behind it".

To recall, Nokia 6 (2018) comes with a 5.5-inch full HD with a screen resolution of 1920x1080 pixels and 2.5d curved display with Corning Gorilla Glass 3 protection.

First and foremost is the Nokia 2's enormous 4,100 mAh battery which offers up to two days of juice on one charge.

The Nokia brand is now clearly making its way back into the global mobile market with accelerated growth, thanks to the several smartphone announcements by the company in 2017. Up front you get a 13-megapixel sensor and the phone supports Dual-Sight, a feature that lets you use both the rear and front cameras simultaneously to take stills/record videos.
