Before this age of smartphones, we all know that Nokia’s almost unbreakable feature phones ruled the market. Nokia soon became popular and made a place in people’s hearts and then unfortunately soon the company went down due to various reasons. But, soon it came back with a mid-budget smartphone, Nokia 6 to conquer the smartphone market again in 2017 i.e., 3 years ago.
Several other OEMs such as Realme, Xiaomi, Oneplus, etc. are working hard to give the latest features and smoother experience to its users via the latest updates. Every company is now running in the race of providing a stable Android 11 update to the respective smartphones. Nokia is now ready to join the Android 11 race to provide the latest Android features and updates to its users as fast as possible.
All the Nokia smartphones are a part of the Android One program that guarantees two years of OS updates and three years of security updates, which is also one of the features of the Google Pixel line.
As per the latest official tweet by HMD Global, we can see the Android 11 for Nokia 8.1 in the fourth quarter of 2020. However, the tweet was later deleted but, the news is very likely to be true. I personally believe that we can see the update in November 2020.
Android 11 gives a new refined interaction with UI, screenshots scrolling, and combining, better screen recording with internal audio capture and better one-handed mode are some other features that Android users are expecting. In addition to it, we get NFC file transfer, Chat bubble, Dark Mode, Battery and storage enhancements, and an Enhanced Do Not Disturb Mode.
Nokia 8.1 Specs:
The Nokia 8.1 brings a full HD 6.18″ IPS LCD HDR10 touchscreen display. The smartphone comes with dual primary cameras of 12MP + 13MP which can capture bright and clear pictures. The selfie camera is 20MP gives beautiful selfies irrespective of light condition.
The Finnish smartphone comes with a superfast Qualcomm Snapdragon 710. The Adreno 616 GPU keeps the graphics smooth and the 4GB RAM ensures that there is no lag and the users have a good experience.
HMD Global is yet to give any new official information on why they deleted the tweet and what are their plans for rolling out Android 11 to the devices. So, we have to wait for an official statement, to get a clearer view of what is going on.
