A few days back, we saw the Nokia 5 receiving an update bringing the September Android security patch ahead of the Nexus and Pixel smartphones. Now, it looks like Nokia 6 has followed suit as the update has hit the smartphone.
The Nokia 8 flagship smartphone was announced in August and is not available in many markets. Despite the fact that it is yet to be released in several markets, the Security update has been rolled out to the device. The users of Nokia 8 can download the update from the prompt that you receive via a notification or get the same from the Settings menu by checking for the update, claims a report by NokiaPowerUser.
HMD Global seems to be highly focused on rolling out updates to the Nokia Android smartphones. The company has already confirmed that all the Nokia smartphones will receive the latest software updates and the entry-level Nokia 3 has already been updated to Android 7.1.1 Nougat.
Also, the company will offer two years of Android OS support to the Nokia branded smartphones. In fact, we have seen the Nokia 8 and the yet-to-be-announced Nokia 9 running the Android 8.0 Oreo update on the benchmarking websites tipping that the update might hit these smartphones in the coming months. Maybe, the Nokia 8 and other Nokia phones will receive the Android Oreo update by the end of this year
The latest update that brings the September Security patch to the Nokia 8 bundles bug fixes and improvements. These will definitely enhance the stock Android experience on the Nokia smartphone as the device comes with no bloatware and brings timely updates.
When it comes to the release time frame, the Nokia 8 is believed to be released in India sometime around the festival of Diwali in October. Being a flagship smartphone, we can expect it to cost around Rs. 45,000.
