Nokia 8 receiving Android 8.1 Oreo update

Nokia 8 Copper official

Android 8.1 isn’t really available on many devices outside of Google’s Nexus and Pixel phones, but today another phone is being updated to the latest version of Oreo.

The Nokia 8 is now receiving an update to Android 8.1 Oreo. The rollout has been confirmed by Juho Sarvikas, Chief Product Officer at HMD Global.

Nokia 8 owners have already started getting their Android 8.1 update, which includes the following improvements:

  • Battery Saving Navigation Buttons
  • Revamped Power Menu
  • New Setting Menu
  • Bluetooth Battery Percentage
  • Update Google Security Patch 2018-02

It’s great to see Android 8.1 expand to non-Nexus and non-Pixel devices, and HMD Global/Nokia are surely earning some goodwill with consumers for their fast Android updates. We’ve already seen HMD push Oreo to several of its other Nokia-branded phones, and now it’s sending out an Android 8.1 update before many other major OEMs release Android 8.0 updates.
