Has anyone managed to receive latest Feb update in last 5 days. I am UK but have VPN onto various country servers with no luck. Wondering if rollout has stopped?

    As far as I know, February's security package is part of the Android 9 v5.140 update. It will take a little bit ..

    I am patient but lately the updates have dragged. I used to be able to VPN to other country's and pick it up but no luck at moment.

    Nowt here either, iD mobile (3 network).

    Here's hoping but perhaps it's been halted while some more bugs are fixed.

    I updated via beta labs but downgraded only because of my phone restarting 4-5 times a day...other than that I had no issues with Pie on my phone although there's many people that seem to have issues 😐

    Mine has been fine running wise it is just niggly stuff like the compass that shouldn't have been buggered up to start with.

    Sounds like you’ve been pre-brexitised, mrbelter. I’ve been lucky to get updates real quick here in Denmark. No preferential treatment otherwise, though. The Nokia 8 is _such_ a fine piece of kit. It’s as though accepting its current shortcomings would be easier if it had been half-baked to start with. Have you seen what it looks like inside. Solid as a rock!

    Android 9 is the last major update for it if Nokia stick to their word, it should get monthly security updates until September/October 2020 again if Nokia stick to their word.

    I say stick to their word because the Nokia 8 isn't an Android One phone and me and MadBilly have looked and looked for when HMD said the Nokia 8 will get 2 major OS updates and 3 years of security patches and we couldn't find it but we are sure we have seen it somewhere. Of course questioning HMD about it via Twitter got absolutely nowhere but i doubt anyone is surprised to hear that.

    Nokia 8 is an "Android Enterprise Recommended" Phone and at least "Three years of security updates, delivered within 90 days from Google release. Nokia smartphones feature even stronger security with monthly updates for the first two years" is documented here:

    "Support current shipping release + one letter upgrade" can be found here:

    2 major OS updates: ???

    HMD promised 2 YEARS of OS updates (meaning new features) since release but they are only legally bound to provide 3 years of security updates because Nokia 8 is an Android Enterprise Recommended device.

    The Nokia 8 has already had 2 major OS updates, it was updated from 7 to 8 and from 8 to 9.

    Thats what i was saying mate, me and Madbilly are absolutely sure the information regarding an Android One like update scheduled was made available to the media in late 2017 but we cannot find it, it seems to have vanished off the planet.

    Vanished because we don't need it anymore (updates are through)???
    And it is well known that it is always advantageous to document as few comprehensible promises as possible somewhere ... o:)
