Nokia 8.1 Android Q update

  • Eligible for Android Q update

The Nokia 8.1 comes with Android Pie pre-installed and is eligible for an update to Android Q. Being one of the top-end phones, we expect the stable version to arrive in Q3 2019, although the device is likely to take part in the Android Q beta testing program.

Nokia 8 Sirocco Android Q update

  • Android Q expected on Nokia 8 Sirocco

Android 9 Pie is only the first OS upgrade and being an Android One device that it is, an update to Android Q is a guarantee for Nokia 8 Sirocco users. We don’t know how long HMD will take to begin the rollout, but if anything, it should be available as from late 2019 or early 2020.

Nokia 8 Android Q update

  • Not eligible for Android Q update

The Nokia 8 received its second major OS upgrade in the shape of Android 9 Pie, meaning it won’t get an update to Android Q, unless HMD has a surprise in store.
