During the launch of Nokia 7.1, Nokia CPO Juho Sarvikas said that Nokia flagships Nokia 8 & Nokia 8 Sirocco will get Pie Update in November. While Nokia 8 users were anxiously waiting for the Pie, Juho took to Twitter on November 30, 2018 to announce that despite burning midnight oil to deliver Pie to Nokia 8, it couldn't be done due to some issues that will soon be resolved. He also promised that the Pie will be released in a couple of days. Today is exactly a week that Juho made the promise and one will begin to wonder how many days are in Juho's "couple of days" since his "shortly" is usually made up of about 30 to 40 days .
It is important to note that Nokia 8 users have been waiting since 2017 for a better camera app and in 2018, Juho promised that a Pro Camera App will be released and after anxiously waiting for the app, Nokia disappointed its users with a very buggy Pro Camera App update. Later, Juho promised again that a new camera app will accompany the Pie Update and till now, we neither see the Camera nor Pie Update. Does it really take a whole year for a compatible camera app to be developed? I'm finding it difficult to believe that Nokia could not develop a compatible camera app for its flagship after a year of its launch. If Google Camera App can work very better on Nokia 8, why can't Juho Sarvikas contract Google to develop camera app for Nokia Android smartphones since all its devices run on stock Android and Android One OS?
Juho should know that if Nokia flagships are not generally satisfactory, consumers can't trust its midrange devices as every brand is judged by the standard of its flagships. Also, flagships are supposed to be given major OS upgrades first because their users paid more.
Juho should sit up and make Nokia 8 users happy.
