Nokia 8 Android Oreo 8.1 Update released
The Nokia 8 was upgraded to Android 8.0 Oreo late last year followed by an 8.1 beta program less than a month ago. The release of the public build is particularly notable for the wider Android landscape as the Nokia 8 is now the first non-Google device to officially receive the 8.1 update
We are rolling out Android Oreo 8.1 on Nokia 8! Get the sweetest Android to date,” Sarvikas tweeted. 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. It also comes with various core Android features such as Neural Networks API, Autofill framework updates, and a SharedMemory API. Besides, you can expect performance improvements and bug fixes, including a corrected hamburger emoji with cheese slice on top of the patty.
The Nokia 8 Android 8.1 Oreo update is over 1.5GB in size, and its package is downloadable only via an active Wi-Fi connection. You can check the availability of the fresh update on your Nokia 8 by going to Settings > System updates
