It seems to be, according to media sources, that it's all going to be covered. All the phones HMD has made will be getting Android 9.
HMD Global's high-end Nokia 8 Sirocco and upper mid-range Nokia 7 Plus are up for pre-order in India, with regional deliveries underway in ten days.
Unveiled at MWC 2018, alongside the higher-end 8 Sirocco and lower-end new 6, the Nokia 7 Plus will officially go on sale in the UK on May 2.
The Nokia 8 Sirocco looks and feels outstanding in the hand, even though it does not pack Qualcomm's latest flagship SoC. In comparison, the Nokia 7 Plus isn't exactly gorgeous, but it's a fairly well-balanced mid-ranger.
The big partner to the current Nokia 7 is still waiting in the wings, but we're getting closer to a feel for the uptown mid-ranger.
HMD Global's Nokia 7 Plus runs Android 8.0 Oreo in a pre-release benchmark, also packing a Snapdragon 660 processor, compared to the original model's SD630 SoC.
As the brand licensee for Nokia smartphones serves Asia, where the number 4 tends to be a homophone for "death," perhaps we're better off with a Nokia 2.
