HMD Global releases Android Oreo 8 OTA update for Nokia 8
HMD Global has released Android Oreo update for its Nokia 8 flagship smartphone. This has been confirmed after a two-week beta-testing program was carried out.
Currently, the update is available for users in Finland and Poland. According to XDA Developers fan forum users, devices with model numbers TA-1004 and TA-1012 are among the lucky devices that get Android Oreo. This was revealed by HMD executive Juho Sarvikas via a tweet.
OVERVIEW OF FEATURES ON THE NEW UPDATE
New features that are being rolled in in this update include a software upgrade features such as Picture-in-picture, detailed Notification dots for every app and Autofill passwords. Malware protection has also been upped as it also comes with the November Security patch and faster boot times. Users share that YouTube runs seamlessly in the dual app mode, meaning you can watch videos and browse at the same time.
Another improvement the update brings is the camera performance. Meanwhile, you still can’t set up the ISO and shutter speed manually, but the shutter can stay open for up to 0.5 seconds. Back in August, when the phone was announced, the AF had some issues, but now they are fixed.
AVAILABILITY OF THE NOKIA 8 ANDROID OREO UPDATE
According to Sarvikas, “the update is expected to be available to everyone in two days time, however, if any carrier decides to review the upgrade one more time, some users might have to wait a week more.” He said.
