    does your device on list of Project treble also ? 

    because google said well only devices which are 

    in project treble and only 1 device from each out of google product 

    like google own 4 devices in list but other vendors only have 1 device 

    for test now , so nokia 7 plus is the device you can consider as flagship level 

    build and software as well same as - more people have this device than siroco 

    so common sense they chosen 7 plus instead of pretty high flag ship Nokia 8 

    beta always consider as more approach more people to join 

    and we know more people have Nokia 7 Plus than Nokia 8 siroco 

    if i am wrong kindly point me out also ! 




  • Hello Akash,

    Apologies if wasn't able to fully understand your response.  However, to your first question: Any device which supports Android Oreo straight out of the box is part of Project Treble, so that's not the issue here.


  • In 2008, Nokia Siemens Networks, a joint venture between Nokia and Siemens AG, reportedly provided Iran's monopoly telecom company with technology that allowed it to intercept the Internet communications of its citizens. The technology reportedly allowed Iran to use deep packet inspection to read and change the content of emails, social media, and online phone calls. The technology "enables authorities to not only block communication but to monitor it to gather information about individuals, as well as alter it for disinformation purposes"

    During the post-election protests in Iran in June 2009, Iran's Internet access was reported to have slowed to less than a tenth of its normal speeds, which experts suspected was due to use of deep packet inspection.

    In July 2009, Nokia began to experience a boycott of their products and services in Iran. The boycott was led by consumers sympathetic to the post-election protest movement and targeted companies deemed to be collaborating with the regime. Demand for handsets fell and users began shunning SMS messaging.

    Nokia Siemens Networks asserted in a press release that it provided Iran only with a "lawful intercept capability solely for monitoring of local voice calls" and that it "has not provided any deep packet inspection, web censorship, or Internet filtering capabil

    Lex Nokia

    In 2009, Nokia heavily supported a law in Finland that allows companies to monitor their employees' electronic communications in cases of suspected information leaking.[176] Nokia denied rumors that the company had considered moving its head office out of Finland if laws on electronic surveillance were not changed. The Finnish media dubbed the law Lex Nokia because it was implemented as a result of Nokia's pressure.

    The law was enacted, but with strict requirements for implementation of its provisions. No company had used its provisions prior to 25 February 2013, when the Office of Data Protection Ombudsman confirmed that city of Hämeenlinna had recently given the required notice.

    Nokia–Apple patent dispute

    In October 2009, Nokia filed a lawsuit against Apple Inc. in the U.S. District Court of Delaware claiming that Apple infringed on 10 of its patents related to wireless communication including data transfer. Apple was quick to respond with a countersuit filed in December 2009 accusing Nokia of 11 patent infringements. Apple's general counsel, Bruce Sewell went a step further by stating, "Other companies must compete with us by inventing their own technologies, not just by stealing ours." This resulted in a legal battle between the two telecom majors with Nokia filing another suit, this پزشکی بدون کنکور time with the U.S. International Trade Commission (ITC), alleging Apple of infringing its patents in "virtually all of its mobile phones, portable music players and computers".[180] Nokia went on to ask the court to ban all U.S. imports of the Apple products, including the پزشکی بدون کنکور iPhone, Macintosh and iPod. Apple countersued by filing a complaint with the ITC in January 2010.

    In June 2011, Apple settled with Nokia and agreed to an estimated one time payment of $600 million and royalties to Nokia.[181] The two companies also agreed on a cross-licensing patents for some of their patented technologies.

    Alleged tax evasion in India

    Nokia's Indian subsidiary has been charged in January 2013 with non-payment of TDS and transgressing transfer pricing norms in India. The unpaid TDS of ₹30 billion, accrued during a course of six years, was due to royalty paid by the Indian subsidiary to its parent company.
