Nokia 8 getting Oreo V4.39 & performance improvements with a new firmware update

Nokia 8 in some European markets including Germany is receiving a new software update. This update brings a new Android Oreo OS version 4.390 along with a new December patch update and performance improvements. For your information, Nokia 8 in most of the markets had already received December Security update, so this is an extra software update.

As you can see in the screenshots above this software update for Nokia 8 is 330.7 MB in size.  You will either be prompted to download this update or you can check by going to Settings and searching system updates and then by checking for the update.

The changelog for the update mentions the December Security patch along with improved system stability and user interface enhancements. As per the reader who tipped us with the screenshot of the update, Camera app seems opening faster after this update.

While the update brings a new Android Oreo OS version one can’t expect new features or changes with this update as these updates are usually meant for fixing bugs and issues.

Thanks Wilbert for the tip & screenshot. Cheers!!

    my update in holland was almost 1500mb eventough i already was running 8.0 with december patch

    It still seems weird to me they did not fix showing the notifications on lock screen. My Nexus 5x with Oreo 8.1 showed notifications on incoming and when picking up the phone. It is something I dearly miss on the Nokia 8. Glance for notifications is unusable

      Still nothing for my sim free in the UK

        I think there is a glitch on some phones. Mine wasn’t getting any updates and was stuck on Android 7 and August update. I removed the Sim card, cleared the storage cache, tried another Sim still nothing. Had no Sim card and the security patches came in. Put my original Sim in and ever since it has been updating. Not sure what kick started the updates but glad I experimented. Though no consumer should have to do this and Nokia Customer support was no help.

          What storage cache did you clear?

          • Keith B

            Temp data. Network carrier cache. I would advise you to contact customer support via the Web site. The more people complain the quicker it will get resolved. Now mine is on Oreo the settings are different so I can’t do a screen print for you.

              They advised me to wait another week and if no update return it.

              • Keith B

                Hopefully you’ll get the update. Please let us know what happens.

                  Found another thread that said EE, O2 and Three have been blocking the update so just went and got a Vodafone Sim and cleared carrier cache and lo and behold the update is downloading.

                    Good on you 👍
