Nokia 8, the 2017 flagship from HMD Global was confirmed to be getting Android 8 along with its much cheaper siblings. True to their word, Nokia 8 users have started getting the Android 8 update notification. The update is going to be rolled out in phases so if you don’t get the notification immediately, don’t freak out, it is on its way.
The other Nokia devices launched this year are also in line for the update and will start getting it soon. Nokia tends to stick to a near stock build of Android. The Oreo update therefore does no have additional bloatware or any third party skinning. The update brings Android 8.0 Oreo’s key features to Nokia 8; Picture in picture, Android Instant Apps, better battery and RAM management among many other optimizations.
The Nokia 8 smartphone was unveiled back in August and eventually made its way into the Kenyan market sometime in October. It is currently available for Ksh 59,999 in Safaricom Shops. There are also lucrative Black Friday deals for the device on e-commerce sites Masoko and Jumia.
