Nokia 8.1 Android 10 update
- Eligible for Android 10 update
The Nokia 8.1 comes with Android Pie pre-installed and is eligible for an update to Android 10. 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 10 beta testing program.
Nokia 8 Sirocco Android 10 update
- Android 10 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 10 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 10 update
- Not eligible for Android 10 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 10, unless HMD has a surprise in store.
