However, some users are still not happy because they wanted the stable Pie update on Nokia 8. Another point is that there is no mention of the Nokia 8 Sirocco. So the Sirocco users will have to wait more.
The company has recently launched the Nokia 8.1 in India under the mid-range segment. The smartphone runs Android 9 Pie and comes with decent hardware configurations such as Full-HD+ PureDisplay, dual rear cameras, etc.
