Nokia Smartphones getting Android 8.0


HMD Global which owns Nokia has confirmed that all their new smartphone devices will run on the new Android 8.0 Oreo operating system. Nokia has started rolling out the Android 8.0 Oreo update on its Nokia 5, 6, 7 and 8 smartphone models. The update is approximately 1.8GB and Nokia says that it will ensure a greater and much secure phone experience.

The company spokesperson said that the operating system will be introduced across its range of smartphone models, and mentioned that it wouldn’t be that long before all users received that update.

Nokia uses Pure Android which means there are almost no customisation done by Nokia on the Operating System like the ones it had on the previous models. This allows Nokia phones to have a much simpler User Interface and a better performance. Google released the Android 8.0 Oreo system in August 2017 and very few smartphone companies have upgraded to the new system.
