The three smartphones mentioned are Nokia 6 (2018), Nokia 1 and the Nokia 9, which will likely be the flagship smartphone of the year.

Before proceeding to download Android 8.1 Oreo update for the Nokia 8, you need to activate Wi-Fi because the total capacity of the update is almost 1.5GB.

Headquartered in Espoo, Finland, HMD Global Oy is the new home of Nokia phones and tablets. The version was being updated with the February Android security patch. However, one Finnish startup, HMD Global Oy, chose to take the big risk and resurrect the Nokia brand. As per screenshots posted by some users who have received the update, the size of the file will be roughly 1.56GB.

HMD Global has already announced that all the Nokia smartphones will receive Android updates for a minimum of two years. Android 8.0 Oreo doesn't look that great as well as it accounts for only 0.8 per cent of all active devices.

The most important markets for Nokia in Q4 2017 were the United Kingdom, where it's among the three most popular smartphone sellers.

Android 8.1 Oreo was announced in December, 2017 and includes a number of new APIs and other improvements.

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. It boasts a 16MP rear camera with LED flash and an 8MP front-facing camera for selfies and video calling.

"The brand's sentimental value within dealers and customers paired with quality smartphone launches is helping Nokia gain further market share". Under the hood, the device is powered by a 2.2 GHz octa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 630 processor along with Adreno 508 GPU.
