The update includes all the general improvements of Android Oreo and enhances the entire performance of the device. You can experience great usability and improved battery performance in this new build. The camera performance was also improved. You still can’t set up the ISO and shutter speed manually, but the shutter can stay open for up to 0.5 seconds. Back in August, when the phone was announced, the AF had some issues, but now they are fixed.
In case you tend to remember, the Nokia 8 flagship was launched by HMD Global back in August with some of the top-tier hardware seen on a typical 2017 flagship onboard. The smartphone features a 5.3-inch QHD display, powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 and 4/6GB of RAM. The device has dual 13MP Carl Zeiss lens on the primary camera department with OIS.
