HMD slash price on flagship Nokia 8 ahead of MWC

Android 8.1 features the new burger emoji design

Having said that, as HMD Global is yet to announce anything officially, it is advisable to wait till the announcements at MWC 2018.

Before proceeding to download Android 8.1 Oreo update for the Nokia 8, you need to activate Wi-Fi because the total capacity of the update is almost 1.5GB.

Shah said that Nokia's growth comes with nascent performance in its most important and second-larget mobile phone market, India, where the brand has the most equity to cash in. The new update brings all the Android 8.1 features introduced by Google such as new settings menu, revamped power menu, Bluetooth Battery percentage display, and so on.

The Nokia 8 Android 8.1 Oreo update is over 1.5GB in size, and its package is downloadable only via an active Wi-Fi connection.

Nokia 8 is now the first third-party handset to be bumped up to the latest version of Android. Android 8.0 Oreo doesn't look that great as well as it accounts for only 0.8 per cent of all active devices.

"The brand's sentimental value within dealers and customers paired with quality smartphone launches is helping Nokia gain further market share".

Lastly, the Nokia 9, which is also called Nokia 8 Sirocco, is said to be a flagship smartphone from HMD Global for this year, and hence, should be powered by Qualcomm's latest and greatest Snapdragon 845 chip. Up front you get a 13-megapixel sensor and the phone supports Dual-Sight, a feature that lets you use both the rear and front cameras simultaneously to take stills/record videos.

HMD Global will be pulling a Samsung this year, as the holding company of the Nokia brand will be sharing its launch event date with the world's biggest smartphone manufacturer on February 25, a day ahead of MWC 2018.

As of now, there is no detailed information about the Nokia 1.
