HMD Global is rolling out Android 9.0 Pie to the Nokia 8 Sirocco. HMD Global announced the update in a press release earlier today and some Sirocco owners have already received it.

The update introduces expected Pie upgrades like Adaptive Brightness, Adaptive Battery, and App Actions. It should please owners of the Nokia flagship, some of whom had voiced concerns over their wait for the latest Android OS.

The Pie upgrade follows only a couple of weeks after HMD updated the Nokia 5.1 to Android Pie; it now has eight smartphones up and running with Pie — more than most Android OEMs. The Sirocco update also includes the December 2018 security patches.

HMD Global didn’t mention where it was rolling out the update in its press release, so we presume this is a global deployment (chatter in the Nokia forums suggests it’s at least in a couple of regions).

It may take a few days to arrive on your handset, but you shouldn’t have much longer to wait now!
