Known for how quickly it delivers software updates to its devices, HMD Global has once again done justice to its fame. That’s because the company started releasing Android 10 update on its Nokia 8.1 smartphone. The information was revealed by the company’s product chief, Juho Sarvikas, through his official Twitter account.
Not all devices should receive the update today. This is because the update will be distributed slowly and gradually. Anyway, this is the first mobile phone of the brand to have the latest software, which brings new navigation gestures, more controls for privacy, dark mode and improvements to Digital Wellbeing.
