HMD Global has started rolling out the Oreo builds to Nokia 7 owners. This is a stable release and follows the January security patch update which was delivered a week back. Along with the latest Android Oreo, the update brings several enhancements viz.
- Android Oreo
- Screen recording functionality
- Gestures for navigation
- Notification wake up (Ambient Display) & raise to wake up (Double tap to wake already exists)
- Updated pre-installed apps (Camera, Gallery, File Manager; etc)
- Improved system stability
The Oreo update for Nokia 7 is about 788 MB of download and requires 1581MB of available storage. That’s if you’re running the most recent release. If your Nokia 7 is running an older build of Nougat, then the update could be bigger.
You can start the download by going to Settings > About > Software update. Also, do ensure that you have at least 35% battery else the installation won’t start.
