But if you're keen to know when these phones will be headed to India, a new report suggests Nokia 6 (2018), Nokia 9 and Nokia 1 will be released in India in April. Nokia has also added the latest February 2018 Security Patch with the update.

The Android 8.1 Oreo stable update for Nokia was confirmed by HMD Global chief Juho Sarvikas on Twitter.

Nokia was once the biggest smartphone manufacturer in the world but lost its appeal when it chose to overlook Android and start making Windows-powered smartphones. The stable update comes after the company rolled out the Android 8.1 Oreo beta last month. As per the latest Android distribution chart, only 0.3 per cent of all active Android smartphones have received the update.

The Nokia 8, despite being a 2017 flagship, is now even more appealing than before.

The Android 8.1 for the Nokia 8 weights in at around 1562.7MB.

First and foremost is the Nokia 2's enormous 4,100 mAh battery which offers up to two days of juice on one charge. To review, the Android phone boasts a 4100mAh battery, 5.0-inch 720p screen, 1GB RAM, quad-core Snapdragon 212 processor, 5MP front-facing camera, and an 8MP rear shooter. You can check its availability by going to Settings About phone Software updates.

These sales have propelled Nokia to owning 15% of the feature phone market and 1% share of the smartphone scene; combined, this gives HMD Global and Nokia a 5% share of the total smartphone market, Counterpoint says, which definitely spells good news for the company. Citing retail sources NPU claims that the Nokia 1, Nokia 6 (2018) edition, and Nokia 8 Sirocco, which is also referred as Nokia 9 in some reports, will be released in India starting April.
