Android 10 update arrives on the Nokia 8.1

HMD Global is lauded for its impressive software support for its Nokia-branded smartphones. When the Android 10 stable update was announced last month, the company released an infographic showing the update schedule for its devices. Keeping to its promise of starting in Q4 2019, the Nokia 8.1 is now the first to receive the update.

Juho Sarvikas who is the Chief Product Officer at HMD Global posted a tweet announcing the update is rolling out to the upper mid-range phone. Android 10 upgrade for Nokia 8.1 going to starts! First on SD710 to bring new features such as Dark theme, Gesture Navigation and more. Staying the course to be the first across the portfolio!

It is no surprise that the Nokia 8.1 is the first Nokia device to get the stable update seeing as it was part of the Android Q beta program.
Below is the change-log for the update which is over 1.4GB in size:
       Dark Mode – Take it easy on your eyes
       Smart reply – Save more time with recommended actions
       Gesture Navigation – Get around with a swipe and a pull
       Additional controls for privacy and location
       Google Security Patch (2019-09)

The other Nokia devices scheduled to get the update this year are the Nokia 7.1 and the Nokia 9 PureView. HMD Global says they will be updated this quarter which means the update should arrive between now and December 2019 on both phones.

However, we believe the Nokia 7.2 and Nokia 6.2 will also get the update this year 2019 as both phones were announced after the update schedule was published. Seeing as they are new devices, they should be high-priority.
