Nokia has also added the latest February 2018 Security Patch with the update.
At the launch event, the Finnish company is expected to launch a slew of smartphones including its 2018 flagship Nokia 9 aka Nokia 8 Sirocco (a revival of Nokia 8800 Sirocco), Nokia 7 Plus and the Android Go-based Nokia 1.
Like many manufacturers, HMD Global should take advantage of MWC to introduce its new products. The new update brings all the Android 8.1 features introduced by Google such as new settings menu, revamped power menu, Bluetooth Battery percentage display, and so on. After rolling out Android 8.0 Oreo late past year, the company has now officially started pushing out the stable Android 8.1 Oreo, which makes the Nokia 8 among the first few phones to receive the latest update. And in the last week of January, HMD Global rolled out a beta version of the Android 8.1 Oreo to the Nokia 8.
As you can see in the screenshots below the February security update for Nokia 3 is around 89.3 MB in size. Android 8.0 Oreo doesn't look that great as well as it accounts for only 0.8 per cent of all active devices. "There's so much more to like about the Nokia 8 than just the mere nostalgia factor behind it". The Nokia 8 is backed by a 3,090mAh battery and supports Qualcomm's Quick Charge 3.0 fast charging.
HMD Global, who is the official licensee for Nokia brand of smartphones, has already announced its presence at Mobile World Congress (MWC) 2018 which will kick off in Barcelona, Spain later this month.
The Nokia 2 was first sighted on the FCC and then was quickly shown off as an entry-level Android smartphone and then arrived in the United States via Amazon.
