The Nokia 8 and the Nokia 8 Sirocco are next in line to get Android Pie, According to HMD Global’s update schedule, both phones were supposed to get the update in November but that didn’t happen. Juho Sarvikas, the Chief Product Officer of HMD Global took to Twitter to explain the reason for the delay.
According to his tweet, they are working on the update for the Nokia 8 but a few unresolved issues have prevented them from rolling it out to users. He adds that they need a few more days to finish up.
Based on the tweet, we presume the update should arrive on the phone in the first week of this month. There is no info about the Nokia 8 Sirocco but the update for it too should arrive shortly after that of the Nokia 8.
We have been burning the midnight oil to get your Nokia 8 on Android Pie. Unfortunately we still have few issues to address and need a couple of more days to make it perfect. Thank you for your patience 🙏
