Android 9 Pie update for Nokia 8 in India
After much stalling, HMD global has finally started rolling out Android 9 Pie update for Nokia 8. However, users in India might have to wait a little longer as the update has not started to roll out in the country yet.
HMD global’s Chief Product Officer Juho Sarvikas tweeted that the delay in India is due to issues with VoLTE and the company is working on new software version for the same.
Hi team, we had regression on volte in India 🇮🇳 and needed to spin new SW. Also the new features many of you have been asking for will be there. Thank you for your patience 🙏
