Nokia 8 Sirocco gets stable Android 10 update
Compared to its Android 9 Pie rollout last year, Nokia's Android 10 update timeline has been somewhat disappointing. It doesn't discount the fact that Nokia is still on schedule, and a very few devices have experienced delayed updates. Android 10 is now making its way to the Nokia 8 Sirocco.
Juho Sarvikas, HMD Global's Chief Product Officer, broke the news via a Tweet earlier today. Nokia 8 Sirocco users will be able to revel in all the standard Android 10 features such as a system-wide dark mode, Digital Wellbeing stats, Google's new navigation gestures, and more.
Android 10 for the Nokia 8 Sirocco will be available to about ten percent of the devices today. That number will increase to fifty percent by April 18th. Nokia promises that all phones will get the update by April 20th. Such a staggered rollout allows HMD Global to monitor the software and pull it should there be something wrong with it.
The first wave of updates will be available in the regions listed here. Nokia 8 Sirocco launched with Android 8 Oreo onboard, so Android 10 is going to be its last major software upgrade. It'll continue receiving monthly updates for a while, though.
