Android 9 Pie update for Nokia 8 in India
After much stagnation, HMD Global has finally started rolling out the Android 9 Pie update for Nokia 8. However, users in India might have to wait a bit longer as the update has not yet started rolling out in the country.
HMD Global Product Director Juho Sarvikas tweeted that the delay in India is due to problems with VoLTE and that the company is working on a new version of software for it.
