The news of rollout comes on the back of a massive price cut for the Nokia 8 in India, making it now one of the lowest priced phones in the country to offer a Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 SoC. Having said that, as HMD Global is yet to announce anything officially, it is advisable to wait till the announcements at MWC 2018. We're yet to see any new Nokia device in 2018, but with MWC being just around the corner, it's logical to expect a few devices, namely the Nokia 9, the Nokia 7, and an LTE-enabled 3310. 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. It also comes with various core Android features such as Neural Networks API, Autofill framework updates, and a SharedMemory API.

The Nokia 2 was first sighted on the FCC and then was quickly shown off as an entry-level Android smartphone and then arrived in the United States via Amazon. The company has also been consistent in terms of releasing latest Android updates and monthly security updates for their smartphones.

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 emoji fix was one of the changes introduced in Android 8.1 release. Additionally, more Nokia phones will be launched at later this month. It boasts a 16MP rear camera with LED flash and an 8MP front-facing camera for selfies and video calling. The handset is backed by a 3250mAh battery with fast charging support and is powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 processor. The software isn't as powerful but one thing is for sure, its battery can last longer up to two days max.

At the upcoming Mobile World Congress 2018 later this month, HMD Global is expected to launch a range of Nokia-branded devices.
