By April 12th, 2018 AT 11:37 AM

Ahead of the first sale, HMD Global, the licensee of the Nokia brand has now started rolling out the Android 8.1 Oreo update to the Nokia 7 Plus smartphone in India. The Nokia 7 Plus, which was launched last week arrived with Android 8.0 Oreo (at least our review unit), but the device will most probably come with Android 8.1 Oreo preinstalled out of the box. The Nokia 6 (2018) which is currently running Android 8.0 Oreo will also receive the 8.1 update very soon as the company has commenced the roll out. The Nokia 6 (2018) is currently up for sale in the country, while the Nokia 7 Plus will be available for purchase starting April 30. Users who’ve purchased the Nokia 6 (2018) will see an update notification very soon and going forward, it might come with the latest version preinstalled.

All the new three Nokia smartphones which were announced last week in the Indian market are part of Google’s Android One program, meaning they’ll receive iterative Android updates and monthly security patches ahead of any other smartphones in the market.

The revamped power menu, redesigned Settings menu, Bluetooth Battery Percentage and April 2018 security patch fixes. The Nokia 6 (2018)’s update weighs 802MB in size and also adds the same features.

The shocker here is that OPPO of all companies beat almost everyone to the punch in shipping a phone with Android 8.1 out of the box….

Why is that a shock? Their phones with the same hardware cost almost double compared to that of the most popular smartphones in the market. Latest software and security features should be given atleast for such a steep increase in price.
