HMD Global has announced the availability of Android 10 for the Nokia 8.1. The Finnish manufacturer has therefore begun the distribution of the new operating system, keeping faith with the roadmap announced at the end of August. Nokia devices are considered the best in terms of update speed.
The Nokia 8.1, like most smartphones that the manufacturer announced in the last year, is a model Android One. This means that there is no software customization and that it will be updated to Android R. The upgrade to Android 10 is about 1.4 GB in size and brings the firmware to version 4.15B. In addition to the new Google operating system, patches released in September are also installed. Obviously we recommend using the WiFi connection to download the update.
