Nokia 8

Why you are not giving developer preview to Nokia 8 as it's a flagship device


23 people have this question

Why is Nokia 8 not claimed, as the phone has the ability to upgrade to the Android P version of the developer? I need to check the ability of some applications to work on this device.

Hello, as of now only one phone per company (except Google's Pixel Devices) can be a part of the Developer Preview. So Nokia chose Nokia 7 Plus to be a part of this and not the Nokia 8. So the Developer Preview is not available of Nokia 8. Thank you.

Now that Android P has been released, will you be opening up a beta of the pleaftorm to Nokia 8? I'm registered as a beta user, just curious. Timing would also be great, though I understand a lot goes into releaseing a new version.

Maybe Nokia decided 8 is too old (IDK, but I don't even care about DP because Nokia announced anyways that 8 will get Android P), but why does 8 Sirocco lack it? Maybe they said that only newest devices will get DP and they chose 7 Plus, but why didn't they chose the 8 Sirocco too?!

Agree that we don't need a DP. 

Dear Laura, I am using Nokia 8 I have a doubt that why don't you integrate Dolby Atmos in Nokia 8 . Nokia 8 have a sd835 chip which is capable to handle the Dolby atmos and one more thing you are not integrated the Qualcomm's proprietary audio codecs like Qualcomm apt-x and apt-x hd. Please enable it in next update. Thank you

No, that is not true and has been a topic here many times. AptX, its HD variant and LDAC are not supported. This setting is being ignored by the Nokia 8 just as comments about this are being ignored by Nokia. Please search in this forum for more info on this.

Oh sorry my bad. Didn't know that it reverted it back. Forget what I said previously.
