Nokia 8 Now Receiving Latest Android 8 Oreo Update

HMD Global's flagship device, the Nokia 8 smartphone has started receiving latest Android 8 Oreo update. This development is unfolding two weeks after the beta-testing program was carried out. The update is currently 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 phones that get Android Oreo. HMD executive Juho Sarvikas revealed this also via a tweet.

Some of the new features this software upgrade brings are the Picture-in-picture, detailed Notification dots for every app and Autofill passwords. 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.

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.
