Nokia 8 Pie update news and more: Android 9 rollout to commence soon

HMD Global is the company behind the Nokia Android phones that are embracing the Android One program, and that includes the Nokia 8 and Nokia 8 Sirocco. Based on what we saw with respect to Nokia 8 Oreo updates, it seems HMD Global is giving software support the seriousness it deserves.

On this page, we have all that you need to know regarding Nokia 8 and Nokia 8 Sirocco software updates, their release dates, and even the changelogs, all in one place. In this way, you should find it easier when trying to establish which update brought which feature or issue, among other stuff.

Nokia 8 Android 9 Pie update

Expected release date: Q4 2018

Device Current OS Android Pie Expected release date
Nokia 8 Android 8.1 Eligible Q4 2018
Nokia 8 Sirocco Android 8.1 Eligible Q4 2018

HMD rolled out the Nokia 8 Oreo update in late 2017 and we expect the same to happen with respect to the new Android 9 Pie update. The fact that the Nokia 8 Sirocco took part in beta testing of Android Pie adds more weight to this argument, implying that Pie update will be out for the Nokia 8 and Nokia 8 Sirocco before the end of the year.

To further cement this claim, Nokia has taken to Twitter to confirm that Android Pie is currently available for the Nokia 8, but the rollout should commence after the Nokia 7 Plus Pie update, which comes out in September.

While Android Pie is showing early signs of becoming the fastest Android OS to be adopted to date, it’s still early to start jumping to conclusions. As of September 1, 2018, Android Oreo distribution sits at just 14.6% and Pie is still nowhere to be seen.
