Nokia 8 has started updating to the Android 8.1 Oreo, the very latest version of the operating system. The update has been announced by Juho Sarvikas, who is the CPO of HMD Global, via a post on Twitter. The rollout will reach the global version of the handset as well as its Plus version with 6 GB of RAM and 128 GB of internal storage.
If you still did not receive the notification on your handset, you will probably get it in the next few days as the rollout is gradual. We cannot say that this Android 8.1 Oreo is a major update of the operating system, but at the same time, it is not a minor update either, as it includes important improvements. In this new version, you will find the additional notification showing the remaining battery percent of the devices connected via Bluetooth, both in the settings and in the quick toggles.
The power menu has been re-designed on the Nokia 8 with a more clear look, as well as the navigation bar. A research bar has been added in the settings and there are also some improvements to the notifications and the backup feature. These are only the most important improvements among all the ones that it is possible to find in the change log.
