One guy posted on telegram what Sarvikas said, and he told that for now we are in the middle of month, and HMD told that 8 get pie in November, so technically they still have time. And that gives some hope :)

Pie or another update with some changes must be just behind the corner.

I've noticed long while ago that Nokia support app form play store is always getting updated about week before new update with system changes land's on.

They updated the support app to allow access to the new Nokia community presented few days ago.

In any case the promised the update to Pie by the end of November. Still a few days and we will have news.

Yes I know, but coincidentally every single time I've received update, support app was updated about week before.

Guys, i am using a lot of apps wich have a notification icons in the notification bar. In the beta next to those icons i had a dot instead of the other apps notification icons. Is this removed in official pie? Can you see all of your notifications? Is this stupid dot still there?
Thanks in advance.

This is change made by Google in AOSP due to notches and AFAIK no OEM changed this behavior for phones without notches to shows as many icons as possible.

Hm, really unfair decision from Nokia to not implement a option to remove this dot and to show all of icons, if it's possible, because Nokia 8 doesn't have a notch...

    It seems that the new camera app will arrive soon, with a completely redesigned imaging framework. It seems that they had problems because of the monochromatic sensor.

    Google has also announced the partnership with Nokia/hmd to integrate Google Lens into the Camera app, so I imagine it will start to be updated via the Play Store.

    Other news for the Nokia 8 were not provided, having already Android 8.1 for months, while the other devices are receiving it only now.

    I think they will keep the real news for the release of Android P and I think that Glance will remain the same (it's the only Nokia to have it, it doesn't make sense to develop it when the stock Ambient Display is much complete and integrated).

    I hope they also add support for Google ARCore.

    I wonder why so many people complain that much about HMD. I guess that maximum 40% of users from xda bought this phone at the moment of its premier. People that bought it after - didn't you check what the status of custom development look like? Such people make me a little bit laugh when I see you asking about status of development. Personally I was flasher addict when I had other phones. Here security patches are being provided every month, soft is almost AOSP, than what are you missing, why did you buy the phone. For playing with soft, I have got two other phones which are very good supported, and this is enough. This one is very rock stable for me, and having possibility of root is enough. I agree they Nokia killed in some way this phone by not permitting unlock of bootloader, but how many of whole Nokia 8 users really need it? I don't know how you do market recognition, but honestly I did the research very good and I bought this phone being aware of its possibilities.

    No one cares if you are getting another phone. No one cares about the future owner. No one cares about your old phone.

    Only the three new phones (6 2018, 7 Plus and 8 Sirocco) will be part of the Android One program: https://www.android.com/one/
    But I don't see where the problem is, so far the Nokia 8 "standard" has been supported as and better than the Android One already on the market, I don't think that things will change, will continue to receive the same support, comparable to that of these new One.

    The positive thing is that they have clearly said that the new Nokia Camera "Pro" will be available for all smartphones with Zeiss optics, so also for our Nokia 8. This justifies the lack of the new app with Android 8.1, they didn't want to announce anything before the MWC.
    However in the version arrived with Android 8.1 have greatly improved the autofocus, now has a speed similar to that of my old Nexus 5X. In this sense there is an abyss between the one in Android 8.0 and this in 8.1
    The new version engineered with Zeiss and Pro mode could finally bring it to the level that competes with it.
