Latest Nokia 8 update brings performance improvements


As per a report by NokiaPowerUser, HMD Global has rolled out a new update to the Nokia 6 smartphone. This update is based on Android 8.0 Oreo and brings performance improvements, the December Android security patch, enhanced system stability, and minor UI enhancements too to the smartphone. Besides these changes, the update is claimed to make the camera app function faster than before.

Notably, this is the second update that has been rolled out to the Nokia 8 in one month. The first OTA update rolled out the December security patch to the smartphone via an OTA update in the third week of December. The first update was a small one measuring just 88MB in size but the latest update that has arrived as Oreo version 4.390 measures 330.7MB.

The report goes on stating that the update to the Nokia 8 is now being rolled out to the units of the smartphone in select European markets. It has to be noted that the device has already received the December Android security patch in select markets such as India but the other changes and improvements will be brought in by the latest update.

You will get a notification prompting them to download and install this latest update on your smartphone. If not, you can update it manually by heading on to Settings → System Update and check for the same. It is suggested that you install the update when the battery is charged optimally and on a Wi-Fi network.

Given that HMD has assured that it will offer two years of OS support to the Nokia smartphones, it is not surprising to see consistent updates bringing bug fixes and Android security patches to the smartphones. Nokia 8 is one of the few phones those have received the stable Oreo update in 2017 and the Nokia 6 and Nokia 5 are still stuck with the Oreo beta update.
