As per the official changelog, as spotted by folks at AndroidPolice, the Android 8.1 Oreo update (version 4.84A) for the Nokia 8 includes battery saving navigation buttons, a revamped power menu, new settings menu, and Bluetooth battery percentage. For the unaware, Google released the Android 8.1 Oreo update to its Pixel and Nexus devices back at the end of December 2017.

Trendforce said in a report that Nokia, a Finnish firm once the world's largest provider of cellular phones, is seeing a clear future growth this year.

The entry-level member of HMD Global's Android-powered Nokia revival is on its way to the UK.

Nokia was once the biggest smartphone manufacturer in the world but lost its appeal when it made a decision to overlook Android and start making Windows-powered smartphones.

HMD Global has already announced that all the Nokia smartphones will receive Android updates for a minimum of two years. Still, Nokia 8 users should be pleased the company is keeping its promise of providing timely Android updates. Android 8.0 Oreo doesn't look that great as well as it accounts for only 0.8 per cent of all active devices.

The Android 8.1 for the Nokia 8 weights in at around 1562.7MB. The Nokia 8 is backed by a 3,090mAh battery and supports Qualcomm's Quick Charge 3.0 fast charging.

HMD Global will be one of the focus brands at this month's MWC 2018. Most phones will stick to tall screens and dual cameras, with every manufacturer holding to its traditional security feature - Apple with FaceID, Samsung with iris recognition and others with a basic fingerprint scanner. According to the listing, Nokia 9 has a 5.5-inch OLED display and a dual-rear camera setup of 12MP+13MP. Well know more about HMD's plans for the year at the upcoming tech trade show.
