TrendForce: Global smartphone sales growth will slow down in 2018

Android 8.1 features the new burger emoji design

The lineup is expected to include the Nokia 1, and upgraded Nokia 6, and Nokia 8 Sirocco which is said to be more like a tribute to the older Nokia 8800 Sirocco launched back in 2006. 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. The update is now live over-the-air and will reach all Nokia 8 owners over the next few days.

In our review of the phone previous year, we said "It's easy to imagine an alternate reality where another, lesser, version of this device coasts along on the novelty of the Nokia brand".

Couterpoint has released a revised report which revealed that HMD Global has sold 4.4 million Nokia smartphone during the fourth quarter of 2017, TechRadar reported.

If you are already a member of the Nokia beta labs, your phone will automatically receive the Android 8.1 beta OTA update notification.

The update weighs in at 1.5GB for the handset and comes with the latest February security patch. It is believed to be an Android Go (Oreo edition) smartphone. Android 8.0 Oreo doesn't look that great as well as it accounts for only 0.8 per cent of all active devices.

HMD's Nokia-branded Androids haven't exactly got reviewers raving - but they are shifting in decent numbers.

HMD Global will be one of the focus brands at this month's MWC 2018.

The Nokia 2 runs on Android 7.0 Nougat but Android Oreo will be ready soon. According to the listing, Nokia 9 has a 5.5-inch OLED display and a dual-rear camera setup of 12MP+13MP. It is also said to be the second smartphone after the LG V30 entering the Indonesian market with the powerful Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 chipset. Well know more about HMD's plans for the year at the upcoming tech trade show.
