Nokia 8 Sirocco finally gets a slice of Android 9 Pie

Wednesday, January 9th, 2019

Owners of HMD Global's Nokia 8 Sirocco understandably thought that buying the flagship Android One model would guarantee them fast updates, but they've since had to sit back and watch plenty of other phones get Pie ahead of them. Thankfully, the wait is over and the rollout starts today.

As HMD points out, it's the 8th Nokia phone to get bumped to the latest version of Android. The Nokia 8 Sirocco is undoubtedly the darling of the lineup, at least until the Nokia 9 PureView becomes official, so it's good to see that it's now caught up with its cheaper siblings.

Monday, January 7th, 2019

The Nokia 7.1 and 6.1 Plus are mid-range Android One devices that were recently updated to Android 9.0 Pie. Following the update, HMD Global has published their kernel source code on its website.

HMD Global releases the kernel source code for its devices as per the terms of the various open source licenses it uses. Since most Nokia smartphones can't be bootloader unlocked (the Nokia 8 being the exception), so far there isn't much custom ROM developers can do with the source code.

Saturday, December 29th, 2018

A little over three months since its official announcement, the Nokia 5.1 Plus is now receiving a stable update to Android 9 Pie. Meanwhile, one of its older siblings, the Nokia 8 Sirocco is a month late for its Pie update, frustrating some users.

Juho Sarvikas, Chief product officer at HMD Global (the company behind the Nokia mobile brand since 2017) announced the rollout on Twitter yesterday. As with any update, some markets will take longer than others to go live, but it shouldn't be too long before users see the new OS version on their mid-range handset.

Sunday, November 18th, 2018

Motorola’s iPhone X clone is coming to the United States for $399

Sunday, November 4th, 2018

Last month, Motorola announced two new Android One devices for international markets — the Moto One and One Power. Both phones look remarkably like the iPhone X, and both have three years of promised security updates. It seemed unlikely that either phone would ever be officially sold in the United States, but Motorola has announced that the regular Moto One will be available from Best Buy on November 9th.

The model coming to the US is equipped with a Snapdragon 625 processor, a 5.9-inch 720 x 1520 LCD screen, 4GB RAM, a 3,000mAh battery, and 64GB of expandable storage.
