Nokia 8 Android 10 update

  • Not eligible for Android 10 update

The Nokia 8 received its second major OS upgrade in the shape of Android 9 Pie, meaning it won’t get an update to Android 10, unless HMD has a surprise in store.

  1. The first flagship of Nokia with powerful hardware will not receive Android 10…. I mean Nokia 8
    That is pitiful as the device will handle it easily :/

    although no one promised such update, it is sad that even very low models will receive an update to 10 and the flagship not and the reason for that is because is has been released earlier….
    Why should I consider buying the flagship of Nokia paying the high price for it while the newer version of OS will not be provided … I am really disappointed πŸ™

    1. Also just to say it again – the camera software for nokia 8 is also a weak point- you can download pixel modified soft and get really much more from the Camera than from the stock application.
      Despite I like the phone- hardware is very good- the actions taken by Nokia are very strange from my perspective- I think I prefer to add some more $ and stop worrying about the updates, camera settings and others… I have learned my lesson- did Nokia? πŸ™‚
