The Nokia 8 is a high-end Nokia-branded smartphone running the Android operating system. HMD Global has promised fast software updates for its entire smartphone portfolio, and while it largely keeps its promise, a Nokia 8 user felt that the promise wasn’t fulfilled when it came to software support for the particular device. To his complaint, Chief Product Officer Juho Sarvikas said that his team is working on a plethora of new features for the Nokia 8, and is looking to introduce them with the Android 9 Pie update. This includes support for ARCore, and a few camera improvements as well.
Sarvikas said that face unlock feature is a work in progress, and the company is still evaluating solutions for that purpose.
