Nokia 6 (2018), on the other hand, is already available in China. We're yet to see any new Nokia device in 2018, but with MWC being just around the corner, it's logical to expect a few devices, namely the Nokia 9, the Nokia 7, and an LTE-enabled 3310. HMD Global Chief product officer Juho Sarvikas confirmed the rollout earlier today, telling users via a Twitter post that "the sweetest Android to date" is heading to the mid-range flagship. 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 update also corrects the much talked about hamburger emoji and also includes the February Google Security Patch. The test has now ended and the company has started rolling out Android 8.1 officially to all Nokia 8 owners.
"Be our guest as we serve Android Oreo 8.1 beta for Nokia 8". The update is now live over-the-air and will reach all Nokia 8 owners over the next few days. Android 8.0 Oreo doesn't look that great as well as it accounts for only 0.8 per cent of all active devices. Note that it could also be the Nokia 7 More, which has recently made its appearance in renderings.
Google unveils Snapchat-style format for its AMP stories

As a general specs refresher, the Nokia 2 is powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 212 processor backed by 1 GB of RAM, 8 GB of storage (expandable), and is kitted out with an 8 MP main camera and a 5 MP front-facing camera. 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.
Shah says HMD needs to focus on emerging markets in 2018 in order to maintain its growth and further cement the Nokia brand as a force to be reckoned with in the mobile space.
