HMD Global confirms Android 8.1 Oreo rollout for Nokia 8


HMD Global’s commitment to delivering timely updates continues with the news that Android 8.1 Oreo is now rolling out for the Nokia 8. Chief product officer Juho Sarvikas confirmed the rollout earlier today, telling users via a Twitter post that “the sweetest Android to date” is heading to the mid-range flagship.

The Nokia 8 was upgraded to Android 8.0 Oreo late last year followed by an 8.1 beta program less than a month ago. The release of the public build is particularly notable for the wider Android landscape as the Nokia 8 is now the first non-Google device to officially receive the 8.1 update.

Judging by screenshots of the changelog, which have been shared by multiple users, the update weighs in at just under 1.6 GB and carries the build number V4.84A.

While there aren’t any major changes, the incremental upgrade provides a handful of menu tweaks and adds a Bluetooth battery percentage indicator. It also comes with the latest Android security patches for February and finally puts an end to the cheese-under-burger emoji fiasco.

Some Nokia 8 owners are reporting that turning the power off and back on again is enough to prompt the update. If that doesn’t work then don’t worry, the OTA should be arriving for all users over the next few days, so be sure to keep checking your notifications if you haven’t received it just yet.

With the Nokia 8 now as up-to-date as possible, HMD Global can turn its full attention to its Mobile World Congress keynote later this month. The Finnish OEM has promised something “awesome”, which has led many to speculate that a true Android-powered Nokia flagship – potentially the long-rumored Nokia 9 – will be unveiled in Barcelona.
