The news comes as a pleasant surprise for most who love the brand Nokia for their build quality and the name it has generated through years of service.
All the Nokia phones released so far will get upgraded to Android 8.0 Oreo, confirmed the company’s head.
HMD Global, the brand behind the new Nokia phones is led by Juho Sarvikas. He is the Chief Product Officer and is in charge of the customer experience that Nokia has to offer them all. Oreo is the latest and greatest operating system from the house of Android. One of the highlighted features of the OS is that it supports Picture in Picture mode that makes it easier to keep an app open while continuing to use your phone to do other tasks.
Nokia has been going on a steady run recently as all the smartphones are appropriately priced and have a good build quality. The smartphone market which was supposed to have been saturated by now paved way for the brand to sell millions of phones in China and India as soon as they got launched. The trend continues and will get much stronger especially if they manage to provide continued support by updating all the phones to Android Oreo version.
Oreo for all
When a user questioned Juho whether his phone will receive the update, he confirmed that all Nokia phones including the entry level Nokia 3 phone will receive the latest Android operating system. Most believed based on the keynote that the lower end device would never get the update because it is severely limited in terms of hardware specifications including RAM and processor.
Instead of making people wait, it is good to see that the head of the product team has come forward to confirm the phones will receive all the latest updates without fail. It will definitely lead to much better sales as a lot of people who are holding off to buy the perfect smartphone would go for the Nokia 5 or the Nokia 9 without any second thoughts.
Even for those who are still on a tight budget and plan to go with the Nokia 3 device can do so because with Android 8.0 Oreo operating system, it will be easy to use the device for at least two years without feeling outdated. All the apps will continue to get supported with latest updates. There is no confirmation on when the Oreo update will roll out.
