After a long wait, HMD Global has released the stable Android 10 update for its 2018 flagship - the Nokia 8 Sirocco - for users across the globe.
We finally have a clearer deadline for when owners of some pretty cool Nokia smartphones will be able to upgrade to Android 9.
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.
It'll have a refined look, feel and overall design, but at what cost? Is it enough for stock Android? Will it be justified with other hardware on-board?
Reportedly codenamed A1P, A1 Plus and AOP, HMD Global's first true flagship is likely to go official at IFA Berlin as the OLED-sporting Nokia 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.
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.
Inspired by a Mediterranean wind, and reminiscent of an old luxury slider, the Nokia 8 Sirocco name has been revealed in Thailand as designating the long-rumored TA-1005 flagship smartphone.
