With the new update, the Nokia 8 will, of course, receive all the new features Google has implemented in Android 8.0 “Oreo”. The most important changes HMD Global calls the picture-in-picture function, the display of notification points and the automatic filling of input fields for passwords. In addition, the update also includes the latest Google security patch for Android in November 2017.
As for further innovations, HMD cites an accelerated start of the Nokia 8 and the fact that the users with the purchase of new Apps are now better protected by Google Play Protect against Malware or Phishing. The Android 8.0 update for the Nokia 8 is currently being distributed to users, but it may happen that you have to perform the search for updates several times until it is displayed.

Nokia 8 will offer a pure version of Android 8.0 Oreo with no alterations and pre-installed apps to deliver a pure Android experience.
