Nokia’s home HMD Global scheduled an event earlier today in Moscow,Russia where the company unveiled three new Android smartphones.
Along with the smartphone unveiling, the company also had few other updates to share with us at the event. Two major and interesting update we would like to bring to our readers attention is regarding the Nokia 2 and the Nokia 8 smartphones.
The first news is about the Nokia 8 receiving the Nokia Pro Camera mode like other Zeiss optics branded Nokia Android smartphones received it. Today at the event, Chief Product Officer of HMD Global, Juho Sarvikas announced that the Nokia 8 will be getting the Nokia Pro Camera mode this coming Friday which is 1st of June. He has clearly mentioned that the update will be gradual. So it could take few days to reach out to all the devices globally.
The second interesting news to bring to your attention is the Nokia 2 getting Android Oreo update. Earlier this year in MWC, when HMD talked about software upgrade about all the devices except the Nokia 2, many were in confusion if the Nokia 2 will get the Android Oreo update. But now HMD Global CPO Juho Sarvikas has confirmed that the Nokia 2 will be getting the Android Oreo update in June this year. Although he didn’t confirm if it will be getting the Go Edition of Android Oreo or the regular one.
Do let us know if you have any more questions. We’ll try to cover them in our next post.
