Despite HMD Global’s promises of super-quick Android updates across its entire line of Nokia phones, Pie is taking a while to reach most devices. The Nokia 6.1/6.1 Plus, 7.1, and 7 Plus have received Android 9, but the rest are still waiting. For the impatient Nokia 8 owners out there, you can now download a Pie beta for your phone.
Thank you for your patience. Since you had to wait a bit longer than expected for Android 9 on your Nokia 8, we decided to make an immediate Beta Labs release.
HMD Global proves once again that it can build a solid mid-range phone.
When the Nokia 7 Plus debuted earlier this year, it became one of the best phones in the mid-range segment. That continues to be the case even now, but the Snapdragon 660 is getting a bit long in the tooth, and with devices that cost half as much offering the chipset, it’s time for an update.
Nokia has been on a roll in 2018 with some truly fantastic Android smartphones and today, its latest is official. The Nokia 8.1 has just been officially unveiled, here’s what you need to know.
Nokia is back, and it’s stronger than ever.
At the start of 2017, a company made up of Nokia veterans called HMD Global revived the storied Finnish brand after securing exclusive rights to the Nokia name. The last 18 months have been fruitful for the brand on many fronts, and it’s safe to say that Nokia is one of the most interesting Android manufacturers around.
