Finally, the Android 10 update is going to hit Nokia 8.1. The brand licensee of Nokia, HMD has made an official announcement. Nokia 8.1 is the first member of the Nokia family that got the latest Android update. It is also the first phone of Nokia that comes with Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 710 SoC in order to get the update that Google officially rolled out for its Pixel phones a month ago.
It is to be expected that other Nokia phones will also receive the Android 10 update as the Finnish company is planning to expand the update to various Nokia phones later this year.

Users of Nokia 8.1 will get Android 10 via an OTA update. If you are owning Nokia 8.1 but didn’t get the update then wait passionately as the rollout is taking place in a phased manner and will take some time to hit all Nokia 8.1 devices over the next few days.
Juho Sarvikas, Chief Product Officer, HMD Global, said in a statement:
“With the Nokia 8.1 being the first Android smartphone running the Qualcomm Snapdragon 710 to receive Android 10, we’re also setting our precedent of firsts, and aim to keep being first to roll out Android 10 across other key chipsets,”
Android 10 is the latest operating system of Google. Initially, it was only released for Pixel phones, the Essential Phone, and some OnePlus phones. Nokia 8.1 was introduced by the company last year with Android 9 Pie.
