Keeping with its promise to offer a smartphone experience that keeps getting better, HMD Global, the home of Nokia phones, has announced that starting from today the rollout of Android 10 will begin with the Nokia 8.1. As the first Nokia smartphone to receive this latest OS update – and as the first phone running with a Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 710 mobile platform to receive the OS update – the Nokia 8.1 will benefit from the latest AI-led innovations enabling even more accessibility options, intuitive controls, and more control of your personal data. 

Nokia 8.1 fans will get to experience a whole host of new features with Android 10, including:

  • Gesture Navigation: control of your Nokia smartphone just got slicker, with faster and more intuitive controls at the tip of your fingers
  • Smart Reply: receive even smarter responses in messages, not just wording but actions you can take
  • Privacy Controls: have even more control of your personal data all in one place, and control when your location is shared with your apps – be that always, just while in use, or never
  • Focus mode: block out distracting apps when you need to concentrate on what’s important (try it now in Beta)
  • Family Link: now part of the Digital Wellbeing settings, helping parents set digital ground rules for the whole family
