The rollout of Android 10 for the Nokia 8.1 has been announced by HMD Global. This is Nokia’s first mobile to be upgraded and keep HMD’s commitment to Android 10.
The company, a couple of weeks back, made a plan to roll out Android 10 updates. And after Nokia 8.1, the rest of the phone such as Nokia 7.1 and Nokia 9 PureView will be upgraded to Android 10 somewhere in Q4 2019.
All Nokia 8.1 smartphones will be upgraded to Android 10 through an OTA update. The rollout will possibly be phased out, and all Nokia 8.1 units should be finished updating in the following days. Android 10 is the newest operating system launched so far for Pixel Phones as well as Essential Phone and quite a few OnePlus devices.
Android 10 brings a new, easier and more natural gesture control. It also provides a Smart Answer feature that gives clever answers in emails, Dark themes, Focus mode, improved privacy controls and much more.

The company launched the Nokia 8.1 late last year, and it runs on Android Pie 9.0 operating system. Currently, the phone is available at $225-250, making it the cheapest smartphone to run on Android 10 right now.
HMD, without a doubt, has been excellent in the implementation of technology upgrades. It has not only updated the entire Nokia smartphone lineup to 9 Pie, but it has done so as quickly as possible.
