Is something to ask other mobile companies about as 1GB Ram Nokia 2 will be receiving their Oreo 8.1 update soonest next year. Many 2GB RAM and above phones like infinix, tecno, itel etc haven’t smell Android 8.0 update talkless of 8.1 (Funny but heartbreaking).
HMD Global is set to directly provide Android 8.1 Oreo to Nokia 2. After bringing the latest Android experience to the flagship Nokia 8.
The handset was launched in October with Android 7.1 Nougat. It comes with an “average global price” of €99
HMD Global Chief Product Officer Juho Sarvikas in a tweet on Thursday confirmed the Nokia 2 will receive Android 8.1 Oreo. Sarvikas also suggested that the cheapest Nokia smartphone will receive some memory management improvements from Google’s Android Go programme that was announced earlier this year and recently rumoured to debut on Nokia 1 sometime in March.
“1GB RAM devices will be supported on 8.1 release where many of the Android Go memory management improvements will be integrated. Nokia 2 performance will only get better over time!” the executive tweeted.
The Nokia 2 is its first model to receive Android 8.1 that was launched just earlier this month for Google Pixel and Nexus devices. Sarvikas’ tweet didn’t reveal by when can we expect the new experience. However, it is quite presumable that the company would bring the update sometime early next year.
