In our review of the phone past year, we said "It's easy to imagine an alternate reality where another, lesser, version of this device coasts along on the novelty of the Nokia brand".

The Nokia 8 becomes the only non-Google phone installed with Android 8.1 Oreo at this point in time, which shows that HMD is indeed living up to its promise of matching Google when it comes to software updates. It also comes with various core Android features such as Neural Networks API, Autofill framework updates, and a SharedMemory API. As per screenshots posted by some users who have received the update, the size of the file will be roughly 1.56GB. The Android 8.1 Oreo update for the Nokia 8 includes a refreshed power menu, battery saving navigation buttons, new Settings menu including battery percentage indicator for Bluetooth. The company has also been consistent in terms of releasing latest Android updates and monthly security updates for their smartphones. The emoji fix was one of the changes introduced in Android 8.1 release.
