New Android flavor starts rolling out.
HMD Global has just announced that the Android 9 Pie update has started rolling out to the Nokia 8 Sirocco. This will join seven other Nokia devices that are now running Android’s latest flavor, which will give them access to the latest features from Google.
Notable changes include Adaptive Battery where the operating system will learn your usage patterns on the smartphone and intelligently prioritize battery life on apps that you use the most. It will also have the new navigation functions of Android 9 Pie, which features a single home button that you use to browse menus and use apps.
One of the most important features of Android 9 Pie is Digital Wellbeing where it helps you use your smartphone less. The features include functions like App Timers and a Dashboard to let you see how much time you spend on your apps. You can set timers or even put the screen to grayscale at night to lessen the possibility of using in the middle of your sleep.
The Nokia 8 Sirocco was of the favorite Android devices of last year. It perfectly combined a seamless design with a decent camera and an awesome stock experience thanks to Android One.
