Nokia has come out of beta testing the new Android Oreo (Android 8.1) software for its Nokia 8 and is pushing out the final update to the users. Juho Sarvikas, HMD Global’s Chief Product Officer, announced this Tuesday on Twitter about the update officially.
Android 8.1 Oreo is being released as an OTA update and it comes in 1562.7 MB package. The update brings with it improvements of the sizes big and small to its users, one of which is being able to view the battery levels of the Bluetooth devices connected to the phone. When you swipe down from the top to view the notification bar, a battery icon is visible right next to a Bluetooth icon, with the name of the Bluetooth device connected. You can view this directly when you swipe down for the notification bar, and when you swipe down again for the quick settings.
The Android 8.1 Oreo update also comes with the option to restore data that has been backed up, after the initial setup process. You as the user gets to choose the location from which the data should be restored into the phone. Design update comes in the form of updated Power menu. When you press the power button, you will be seeing power options towards the edge of the phone near to the power button rather to the center of the screen which has been the case for long.
