Recently, the company trademarked Nokia 8 Sirocco Edition moniker, so there are chances of this device to be launched as well. The update is now live over-the-air and will reach all Nokia 8 owners over the next few days.

Microsoft's acquisition of Nokia's phone division permitted the Finnish parent company to reuse the Nokia brand on smartphones from the end of 2015. Also, the latest update includes February 2018 security patch fixes.

After a successful roll-out of the Android 8.0 Oreo update in November past year for the Nokia 8 smartphone, HMD Global has released the beta of the Android 8.1 update for the phone. As per screenshots posted by some users who have received the update, the size of the file will be roughly 1.56GB.

"Be our guest as we serve Android Oreo 8.1 beta for Nokia 8".

The overall growth momentum in global smartphone market will remain weak this year due to lower demand and fewer replacement purchases, Trendforce said.

Nokia 8 is now the first third-party handset to be bumped up to the latest version of Android. Counterpoint reckons HMD sold 4.4 million Nokias in the final three months of 2017, with total sales to date topping around 10 million. The company is expected to unveil a range of new Nokia-branded Android smartphones.

The flagship comes with a 5.3-inch quad-HD IPS display with 700 nits of brightness, a Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 processor with 4GB of RAM and 64GB of internal storage, which is further expandable by up to 256GB via a hybrid micro-SD card slot. "There's so much more to like about the Nokia 8 than just the mere nostalgia factor behind it". Nokia 6 (2018) comes with dual view mode which will allow you to capture feeds from both front and rear camera at the same time. Well know more about HMD's plans for the year at the upcoming tech trade show.
