Nokia 8 Android 8.1 Oreo stable update now rolling out

Nokia 8 Android 8.1 Oreo stable update now rolling out

You can check the availability of the fresh update on your Nokia 8 by going to Settings System updates. HMD Global says the phone's official launch is February 26th (via TechRadar), but Amazon's listing now says it will be released five days earlier on the 21st. The recent reports have suggested that the Nokia 9 could be announced with the moniker Nokia 8 Sirocco.

As per the official changelog, as spotted by folks at AndroidPolice, the Android 8.1 Oreo update (version 4.84A) for the Nokia 8 includes battery saving navigation buttons, a revamped power menu, new settings menu, and Bluetooth battery percentage. The good news does not end there.

After starting with a market share and global ranking of zero a year ago, Nokia now has 1% of the global market share and falls just outside the top 10 phone brands.

Having said that, we can expect more details regarding the upcoming Nokia smartphones in India to unfold in the coming weeks.

Let me go, pleads Leicester City's Riyad Mahrez
The Algeria global has embarked on a self-imposed strike since his move to Manchester City in January fell through. It is common in football to see a player on strike when the transfer window is open.

The Android 8.1 Oreo stable update for Nokia was confirmed by HMD Global chief Juho Sarvikas on Twitter.

It is worth observing that this timeline of an India launch in April is not in contrast to how domestic launches take place, which is only a few weeks after the global announcement. The Nokia 1, on the other hand, is an entry-level smartphone that's powered by Android Oreo (Go Edition).

As of now, there is no detailed information about the Nokia 1.

The Nokia 2 is available in United Kingdom on 26 February 2018. After a few renders and promotional posters, these images of the Nokia 7 Plus in the real world are an indication that the smartphone will indeed be announced very soon. The second-generation Nokia 6 costs RMB 1,499 (approximately Rs 14,600) for the base model with 3GB of RAM, and RMB 1,699 (approximately Rs 16,600) for the 4GB RAM model. It packs a 5.5-inch full HD LCD display, Qualcomm Snapdragon 630 SoC, and 3,000mAh battery.
